American Well is teaming up with Aligned Telehealth to offer psychiatry and behavioral health capabilities via its telehealth platform.

Aligned Telehealth offers on-site and telemedicine-powered behavioral health solutions to hospitals, long-term care facilities, outpatient clinics and correctional programs. Aligned's proprietary platform enables psychiatrists and mental health specialists to offer care remotely on demand. This helps health systems quickly and effectively care for high-risk patients suffering from chronic mental illness and substance abuse.

Per the partnership, American Well will offer on-demand emergency/consult psychiatry, on-site psychiatric staffing and integrated behavioral healthcare solutions through its platform.

American Well powers telehealth solutions for 130-plus health systems composed of 2,000 hospitals and 55 health plan partners.
