Unlocking the Front Door to Digital Mental Health with Brad Kittredge & Doug Nemecek, MD

More than one in five adults have a diagnosed behavioral health condition. Yet only about half are in active treatment –and it takes an average of 11 years from the onset of symptoms before a patient seeks care. 

Our guests,  Brightside Health CEO Brad Kittredge and Evernorth Chief Medical Officer for Behavioral Health Dr. Doug Nemecek, are opening multiple front doors to let patients in. 

CareTalk is a weekly podcast that provides an incisive, no B.S. view of the US healthcare industry. Join co-hosts John Driscoll (President U.S. Healthcare and EVP, Walgreens Boots Alliance) and David Williams (President, Health Business Group) as they debate the latest in US healthcare news, business and policy.
