  • Multi-dimensional engagement and interactions through digital tools that are personalized and tailored to the individual needs of each patient
  • Organized behavioral health delivery system through our Magellan Behavioral Health® network for enhanced access that simplifies the member and provider experience and demonstrates improved quality and cost outcomes
  • Integrated physical and behavioral collaborative care with joint rounds, medical and behavioral care gap closures and co-located case management
  • Guided identification and treatment within the medical delivery system by finding patients while they are in the primary care environment and referring individuals to evidence-based behavioral health resources
