Osmind

Osmind for ketamine patients

At Advanced Wellness and Pain, we are working with Osmind to help you feel better.

With the Osmind platform, we get you more money back by helping you with insurance claims. It helps us improve how you feel, makes your experience with our clinic better, and provides additional support for you.

We use the @osmindhealth app to make your care journey better.
This app helps us track your progress and you can communicate with your physicians directly through the app.

The green vertical lines represent the ketamine infusions. You can see how after one infusion the patient had a temporary elevation of their mood. This is a prime example of why it is important to complete the recommended six infusion series for longer-lasting results. The initial six infusions are known as the “induction phase”.

We often get calls from prospective patients wondering if they can do just one infusion. We understand it can be difficult to commit to the six infusion process but this is a prime example of how only doing one infusion can actually be a disservice to a patient.

Imagine if this patient only did one infusion and didn’t commit to the process. What would their life be like now? What would their subjective impression of ketamine infusions be?

Trust the process and give the ketamine infusions a chance to create positive neuroplasticity results.

Over a two-week period, we can create long-lasting results with our comprehensive infusion program. Call us today and take the first step toward finding relief. There is hope, we can help you!

Why does this app help patients feel better?

The Osmind Care Platform enables us to practice measurement-based care. Measurement-based care is an evidence-based practice that involves the systematic evaluation of your progress throughout a treatment, including systematic administration of symptom rating scales, which helps drive clinical decision-making in a personalized manner. This approach has been shown through many studies to improve clinical outcomes and help patients get better faster.

By using the Osmind platform for measurement-based care, we are following evidence-based practices that have been advocated for by experts for many years. In fact, many other clinics do not follow these evidence-based practices. A large amount of research has shown that measurement-based care helps improve outcomes and provides a number of benefits to patients and clients. If you are interested to learn more, please read this whitepaper on measurement-based care.

The app also helps you get money back for your treatments with us. You can submit your out-of-network insurance reimbursement claims directly through the app, which will send it to your insurance company digitally. It takes less than two minutes for you to submit your reimbursement claim!

Measurement-based care improves your treatment

Many studies have shown that using patient-reported symptom rating scales improves how patients feel. Studies also show that patients like this approach since it gives you more control over your treatment journey, augments your communication with your provider, and makes your care more efficient.

Instructions from our clinic

By using this app, you will get more money back from your insurance for our treatments. It also helps us improve our treatment for you. It is important that you follow the app’s reminders and fill out periodic mood ratings, questionnaires, and journaling. This is how we would like you to use the Osmind mobile app:

  • Once a day, the app will ask you to fill in a mood rating. Please do so, and also journal about anything that may have affected your mood for the day. We go over the mood ratings and journal entries to optimize your treatment and ensure you are getting better.
  • Once every two weeks, the app will ask you to fill out a PHQ-9 depression questionnaire. Please follow those instructions.
  • If you feel better or worse because of anything that has happened or any thoughts you have, please add it into the journal. We read the journal entries so we can help address things that are bothering you and promote things that make you feel better.
  • After you get treated by us, we give you a superbill. You can use the Osmind app to submit a claim to your insurance company for reimbursement. All you need is the superbill and about two minutes — the Osmind platform takes care of the rest!

FAQ

After we treat you, we give you a superbill. You can use the Osmind app to submit a claim to your insurance company for reimbursement. All you need is the superbill and about two minutes to input information into the app — Osmind takes care of the rest! On the backend, it rapidly sends your claim electronically to your insurance company (no more snail mail, fax, haggling, or the insurance company pretending it never got your claim in the mail). The insurance company confirms that it has digitally received your claim, and you will receive your Explanation of Benefits letter with your reimbursement directly from your insurance company. The Osmind app makes it very easy for you to submit your insurance claims, significantly speeds up the reimbursement process, and increases the chance of a successful reimbursement.

If your claim is rejected, Osmind also offers a rejection resolution pathway. For any questions or assistance with claims, email support@osmind.org.

James T. Leathem, DO

Dr. James Leathem is a board-certified anesthesiologist and a member of the American Society of Anesthesiologists. He was born and raised in Connecticut and graduated from Florida Southern College with a bachelor of science in marketing management with minors in sociology and communications. He obtained his medical degree from Midwestern University’s Arizona College of Osteopathic Medicine and completed his residency in anesthesiology at Michigan State University and its affiliated McLaren Greater Lansing Hospital.

In 2015, after residency, Dr. Leathem returned to Arizona to practice anesthesiology. He joined Red Mountain Anesthesiologists and worked primarily at Banner Baywood Medical Center in Mesa, performing 100% of his own cases. He was made partner in the group after demonstrating 3 years of anesthesia excellence and administering over 4,000 anesthetics. In 2019, a corporate change occurred and an opportunity presented itself in which he was able to transition out of the hospital to surgery center and clinic-based anesthesia.

Dr. Leathem realizes that the only constant in life is change. In 2020, amidst the global pandemic, his career took a different direction. This change led him to collaborate with Dr. Wong and Dr. Sharma and they founded Advanced Wellness and Pain (AWAP). Their mission is to provide a variety of state-of-the-art procedural services that improve patients’ quality of life and overall physical and mental well-being.

Dr. Leathem believes that we are all a work in progress and that each day, one should strive to make positive changes in their life. He is here to help empower each patient on their journey to be their best self and live their best life. When you are being cared for by Dr. Leathem, you can be assured that he will give you his undivided attention and time.

Gregory Wong, MD

Dr. Wong is a Board-Certified Anesthesiologist and a member of both the American Society of Anesthesiology and the Arizona Society of Anesthesiology. He did his undergraduate training at the University of California at Davis, Davis, California; doctorate training at The University of Health Sciences of the Chicago Medical School, North Chicago, IL; and his post-doctoral training at the Integrated Program at the University of Arizona, Phoenix, AZ. He has spent his whole 24-year career practicing in Arizona.

Dr. Wong grew up in the Bay Area of California. He is married and is raising three daughters. At the early age of 12 years old, he knew he wanted to become a physician. His love of the human spirit, intrigue of human physiology, and compassion for human suffering led him to the path of anesthesiology and pain medicine.

Today, Dr. Wong realizes patients need a holistic biophysical-mental-spiritual care. This philosophy has brought him to the studies of regenerative medicine and infusion therapies. He has firsthandily witnessed the overwhelming success of these therapies for treating chronic pain and depression and the return of patients of “life-functionality.”

“There has never been a time more important than now to advocate for our patients in these difficult times. We owe it to our patients to offer these state-of-the-art treatment modalities that weren’t available before.”

He went on to complete residency at the Mount Sinai Morningside-West Hospital System in New York, NY and post-graduate fellowship at Stanford Medical Center in Palo Alto, CA.

Dr. Sharma is committed to treating his patients as a whole with a comprehensive biophysical-mental-spiritual approach.

In his free time, Dr. Sharma enjoys spending time with his family and friends, hiking, traveling, reading, and meditation.
