What ordering take-out and seeking behavioral health services have in common

It’s all about up-to-date information

Ever tried googling contact information for a business? Sometimes it’s great. All the information you need is right there. Other times? Perhaps it’s gone like this…

You feel like ordering take-out tonight. That little Italian place you haven’t been to in a while, what was it called?

You find the restaurant’s listing online. When you look for their hours or try to dial the number, you come up dry. 

You try searching again. You dial another number you find online. No answer. You really wanted pasta primavera but decide it really isn’t worth the trouble.

Like you, members want to live their best lives. When your practice information is not accurate, it can cause members undue stress and frustration, not unlike that you experience when you can’t get ahold of a restaurant for take-out. Except members looking for your services are struggling with a behavioral health or substance use issue, not just looking to satisfy a craving.
