We are Here to Assist You
AVALON BEHAVIORAL HEALTH SOLUTIONS
Avalon Behavioral Health Solutions (ABHS) was launched to assist patients, families, self-insured employers and providers with two significant challenges. The first challenge is the overutilization and lack of coordination in prescribing medications. In today’s healthcare delivery system patients are often prescribed a medication to suppress a symptom that can be addressed with a more effective personalized medication, alternative non-pharma or OTC interventions, or behavioral and lifestyle transitions. Additionally, as individuals receive care from multiple providers this often leads to poly-pharmacy situations with the inherent ineffective, contraindicated and toxicity risks. Obviously, these practices also lead to inflated costs.
The second challenge being the isolated and siloed manner in which healthcare is delivered in both the commercial/private pay models, and in government funded delivery systems. Additionally, ABHS supports stakeholders in the transition from a clinically focused healthcare model to one that recognizes the tremendous value of nonclinical Social Determinants of Health interventions.
Avalon is focused on better health for the individual and populations with the design of better healthcare delivery systems.
Our Main Service
Today’s healthcare practices very often lead to the over prescribing of medications, and the lack of coordination across multiple providers. Avalon provides a comprehensive platform to address this issue. By combining sophisticated risk stratified analytics, with the highest quality laboratory services, and Doctors of Pharmacy available to consult with patients and providers, we ensure that individuals are prescribed the clinically minimum level of the appropriate medications.

Right drug, right dose, right patient
Avalon has relationships with both national and regional PGx laboratories. We have negotiated pricing models that will not only create improved healthcare but generate measurable returns on investment.
A single PGx Test is valid for a lifetime. No need for additional tests. The results are easy to read and understand as well as a menu identifying which medication is best. As new drugs come to market the test recipient information is updated. This information can be life saving. You have 24/7 access to your test results which is available via mobile app or website. The test is not a single snapshot in time but ongoing medical information as you age.

Healthcare System Reform and Social Determinants of Health
The current healthcare delivery system is not creating the optimal health outcomes. Over decades the methodology has evolved to clinically driven interventions with a focus on a volume of care. Often the overutilization of institutional treatment is the norm when a lessor location of care would drive better outcome. The challenge before us is to bring those non-clinical Social Determinants of Health (SDoH) interventions to individuals to prevent unnecessary utilization of the Emergency Department and in-patient hospitalization.
Avalon possess both strategic and operational experience in SDoH systems. Key stakeholders in an effective model include:
- Community Based Organizations
- Faith Based Organizations
- Housing Providers
- Nutrition/Food Providers
- Transportation Providers
- Local governments
- State Governments
Many of these groups agree on the ultimate outcome of care best being delivered at the lowest and closest level to the individual. However, they need to tackle challenges of capacity, finance systems, budgeting, billing, documentation, and sustainability.
Avalon is available to work with you to maximize the value of redesigned Systems of Care and maximize quality and value at the organizational level.
