Teladoc’s Latest Offering to Integrate Behavioral Health

Teladoc’s Latest Offering to Integrate Behavioral Health. A user holds a phone displaying the Teledoc behavioral health telehealth app.Virtual care giant Teladoc is launching an integrated approach to delivering its behavioral health services. The recent launch of myStrength Complete integrates app-based models from myStrength with Teladoc’s on-demand therapists and psychiatrists.

Livongo acquired myStrength in 2019, and then it was absorbed in Teladoc’s purchase of Livongo in 2020. The service uses evidence-based clinical models such as cognitive behavioral therapy, positive psychology and mindfulness to help treat behavioral health conditions like depression, anxiety, insomnia and substance-use disorder. The myStrength Complete app will be the front door that will connect consumers with Teladoc practitioners.

The new service is slated to be available to individuals in July through their health care plans or employers, Teladoc states.

In a now-crowded field of mental health virtual care providers, and with the overall telehealth market coming off pandemic peaks, some investors are wondering whether stand-alone apps like AbleTo, Lyra Health and Ginger now will need to seek health plans or other telehealth providers as partners to remain viable in the long run.
