Our Founding Story...
Our co-founder, Christopher O’Shea, realized the behavioral health treatment industry had long shifted away from clinically matched care and was driven by economic forces of placement rather than results. Thus, came the idea to bring digital transparency from treatment centers to the market to move it back to clinically matched care; version one of TPN's digital platform was born.
In late 2018, Christopher and Trevor Colhoun were introduced. Through their discussions, they realized the initial focus needed to be narrower and needed to broaden the approach to include more than just treatment centers. To execute this vision, they realized they needed to start at the beginning of the behavioral health ecosystem and digitally aggregate the millions of individual licensed behavioral health clinicians. Clinicians are the driving force of behavioral health care. Providing them with data, analytics, and connectivity in a digital marketplace would be the catalyst to execute Chris’s original vision.
After a few months, Trevor and Chris joined to execute Chris’s vision of TPN. TPN.health broadened its mission to include the entire behavioral health industry and build a clinician-focused platform encompassing treatment centers and other organizations. Through our digital platform, clinicians receive continuing education, share, connect, endorse, find referrals, supervision, and expand their craft. The key is to have a safe and protected environment for licensed behavioral health professionals. By bringing the analog world digitally, we are opening pathways of information and connections that were unknown prior, allowing users to have analytics to hunt for valuable connections and referrals.
Today we provide data, analytics, and connectivity to thousands of licensed behavioral health clinicians nationwide. By working with hundreds of organizations, like treatment centers, associations, and insurance companies, we connect a marketplace built to follow a pathway of clinical-matched care and RESULTS!
