The Truusight Solution

Truusight is a chronic disease management solution specifically designed to help large employers and organizations mitigate the financial impact from substance use disorders and co-occurring mental health conditions. Truusight’s population-wide solution was created by data-driven, results-focused industry experts with abundant hands-on practical experience that understands the whole person approach necessary for success.

Truusight is a chronic disease management company that helps large employers and unions mitigate the financial impact of substance use disorder and co-occurring mental health conditions in employees.

Even when employers offer ample services and health plan benefits for substance use disorder and mental illness, most employees do not access these resources until they are in crisis. Multiple barriers exist that prevent employees from reaching out sooner, such as privacy concerns, stigma around brain illness, difficulty navigating provider networks, and financial limitations. For these reasons, the vast majority of struggling employees go undetected, undiagnosed, and untreated, and employers face substantial excess spend and liability.

Truusight does not replace any services provided by an employer’s current wellness and health benefits programs. Rather, we eliminate the barriers that keep employees from taking advantage of those resources. We help employers optimize their existing programs and maximize their return on investment.

Truusight was created by data-driven, results-focused industry experts with an abundance of practical experience and a commitment to whole-person health. Our continuum of solutions achieves significant cost savings (4-to-1 return on cost of program after year 1 alone), in addition to reduced losses from employee absenteeism, presenteeism, and turnover. By combining known best practices with innovative technology, Truusight helps employers overcome the challenges related to substance use disorder and co-occurring mental illness in their employees.

Executive Team

Truusight was born at the crossroads of a dynamic executive team — each steeped in experience in their respective area of expertise, and each driven by their own passion around helping those suffering from substance use disorders and mental health conditions.
