Invests in care support systems to facilitate rapid expansion
TORONTO, ON / ACCESSWIRE / May 18, 2021 / Novamind Inc. (CSE:NM)(OTC PINK:NVMDF)(FSE:HN2) ("Novamind" or the "Company"), a leading mental health company specialized in psychedelic medicine, has opened a new Novamind Client Care Center ("Client Care Center") to manage the overwhelming demand for its treatments and to support its planned growth to eight clinics by September 2021.
Novamind's new Client Care Center is located in Murray, Utah, and staffed by highly trained personnel who connect and interact with clients through various communication channels. On an average weekday, Novamind's Client Care team responds to approximately 700 inbound calls from clients, physicians, and caregivers.
"We are proud of how our clients begin and sustain their therapeutic relationships with our clinics," said Pierre Bou-Mansour, Chief Operating Officer of Novamind. "As we continue our rapid growth, we remain committed to maintaining a high degree of service while helping new and existing clients access our innovative mental health and psychedelic medicine treatments."
After completing an intensive 4-8 week training program, Client Care Center specialists provide valuable services including managing client questions, resolving complex issues, and scheduling clients with appropriate providers. Specialists also coordinate physician referral intakes, fulfill prescription medication requests and treatment pre-authorizations, as well as verify and explain insurance benefits to match each client's unique needs.
The new Client Care Center was opened in response to record demand for treatments. Currently, all clinics have an approximate 2-week wait time to book new appointments. In 2020, Novamind recorded 20,000 client visits, and anticipates 65,000 client visits in 2021, a 225% increase.
"Novamind's expansion plan is six months ahead of schedule," reported Yaron Conforti, CEO and Director.
