What sets WEconnect Health apart from other solutions available?
WEconnect’s engagement and results are greater than any other digital solution. WEconnect couples strong technology with peer recovery support specialists who assist patients in real time by developing comprehensive recovery plans to keep members in long-term recovery.
Is WEconnect's technology HIPAA-compliant?
Yes. We take privacy very seriously and maintain HIPAA-compliant standards.
How do you ensure members with contingency management are staying on track with their recovery plan?
WEconnect utilizes GPS location verification and URL verification to validate routine check-ins. It's only possible to check into routines if a member is in the right place at the right time. All member activity is visible on back-end dashboards, so improper use of the app signals a care team to intervene.
How are Peer recovery support specialists certified?
WEconnect Peer recovery support specialists (PRSS) have either a state-recognized certification or a national credential. Peers are also encouraged to become NAADAC-certified within 6 months of hire. Requirements for obtaining a credential varies by state, but typically requires:
20-100 hours of peer work, signed off on by a supervisor
Personal or lived recovery experience
Passing score on a test demonstrating knowledge of recovery, treatment, and ethical boundaries
Every member of our PRSS team is trained in recovery management, education, and advocacy, professional ethics and responsibility, and confidentiality.

Why are rewards so effective for substance use disorder?
Contingency management, the proven technique behind our incentive-based program, has been shown to be the single most effective standalone method for treating substance use disorder. Rewards provide an incentive and keep patients highly engaged in their recovery plan. Keeping patients in long-term recovery reduces emergency department stays and readmissions over time. As a quality improvement activity, WEconnect helps drive a healthy medical loss ratio (MLR).
