NeuroStar® Launches Better Me Provider Program Nationwide

The first and only TMS company to establish comprehensive standards for patient care and responsiveness in the mental health industry

MALVERN, Pa., July 01, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Neuronetics, Inc. (NASDAQ: STIM), a medical technology company focused on designing, developing, and marketing products that improve the quality of life for patients who suffer from neurohealth disorders, announced the national launch of the Better Me Provider (BMP) program, pioneering new standards in patient care and responsiveness to improve treatment accessibility within the mental health industry. The providers participating in the program are committed to rigorous standards, developed in collaboration with a network of TMS medical experts.

“The Better Me Provider Program is an approach that considers the entire patient journey, providing an optimal experience to get the help they need faster,” stated Keith J. Sullivan, President and CEO of Neuronetics, Inc. “We are excited for more NeuroStar providers to participate in the program and continue to make our life-changing treatment more accessible to the 29 million people suffering from MDD, OCD, and anxious depression.”

During the pilot phase, the BMP program demonstrated remarkable success by significantly enhancing provider efficiency and responsiveness, thus improving the experience for NeuroStar patients.

  • Improved response times: Participating practices raised the bar for response times, achieving up to a 6.4x improvement in 24-hour follow-ups compared to non-BMP providers.
  • Advanced training: Through advanced clinical training at NeuroStar University (NSU), participants learned the latest techniques for building patient awareness and treating patients with NeuroStar, allowing these attendees to treat 58% more patients on average than their non-attendee counterparts, ensuring that more patients in need receive potentially life-changing therapy.
  • Swiftly addressed interested patients: The program also significantly accelerated patient engagement, reducing the time from initial interest to motor threshold (MT) determination fivefold compared to the previous year. This led to 3.6x more MT determinations, which has the potential to transform more patients' lives.

“Being part of the Better Me Provider program means not only upholding proven standards but also contributing to a collective effort to address the pressing mental health challenges our society faces,” said Dr. Melissa Fickey, Founder of Embracing Life Wellness Center.

The BMP program, a comprehensive commercial initiative, is nationally available today where NeuroStar Practice Development Managers will continue to collaborate with NeuroStar practices to help them meet the qualifying criteria and enroll in the program. There are currently 300 active sites in the program, with over 125 more committed to adhering to the standards in anticipation of the national rollout in July.
