Sometimes it can feel difficult to ask for help. But since our founding in 2017, Bicycle Health has seen firsthand just how impactful it can be to turn to experts for guidance. For five years, we’ve been committed to providing more accessible, affordable, and effective treatment for patients struggling with opioid-use-disorder (OUD) through telehealth. In another major step towards our mission, we’re proud to bring together some of the leading experts across the addiction treatment and recovery sector to form the Bicycle Health advisory board.
Designed to assemble leaders across multiple facets of addiction treatment and healthcare, Bicycle Health’s new advisory board will help us continue to design treatment plans based on the latest expertise and research. We’re excited to welcome these board members to the Bicycle Health family as we continue building the best treatment plans to meet people today–wherever they may be.
The Bicycle Health advisory board includes:
Dr. Kelly Clark, Founder & President of Addiction Crisis Solutions
Dr. Clark serves as the Chief Clinical Advisor for Bicycle Health. She has focused her career on issues of addictive disease, evidence-informed behavioral healthcare, and payment reform. With experience across both early and late-stage companies, Dr. Clark provides clinical, payment, and policy insights to the Bicycle Health team.
Ryan Hampton, Founder of The Voices Project & Organizing Director of the Recovery Advocacy Project
Ryan Hampton is a prominent advocate for those recovering from opioid addiction. In recovery himself, he has worked across non-profits and national recovery advocacy campaigns to change the national conversation about addiction. Part of the core team that released the first-ever U.S. Surgeon General’s report on addiction in 2016, Ryan now speaks nationally and internationally about opioid addiction in an effort to break down cultural barriers that have kept people suffering in silence and holding public policymakers accountable.
Patrick J. Kennedy, Founder of The Kennedy Forum & Former Member House of U.S. Representatives
Patrick J. Kennedy has been a long-time advocate for those struggling with mental illness, addiction, and other brain diseases. While a member of the U.S. House of Representatives, he was the lead sponsor of the landmark Mental Health Parity and Addiction Equity Act, which provides millions of Americans with access to mental health and addiction treatment. Today, he is one of the leading advocates for opioid-use-disorder treatment, having served on the President’s Commission on Combating Drug Addiction and the Opioid Crisis in 2017 and founding several organizations aimed at providing mental health and addiction resources.
Dr. Benjamin Miller, President of Well Being Trust
Benjamin Miller is the President of Well Being Trust, a national foundation committed to advancing the mental, social, and spiritual health in the U.S. A clinical psychologist by trade, he has experience across the healthcare space, with specialties in integrated healthcare, health policy, payment reform, primary care, mental health, and well-being.
Dr. Russ Phillips, Director of the Center for Primary Care at Harvard Medical School
Dr. Phillips has been a leader in innovation in practice and payment in primary care, implementing new care models for patients with chronic illness and testing the impact of global payment on value by using micro-simulation. He is a vocal advocate for access to primary care as well as global payment for primary care. He brings his expertise in the evaluation of innovations in care, systems improvement, patient safety, and quality of care to the Bicycle Health team.
These advisors join Bicycle Health at an exciting moment of growth: Just last month, we received tremendous validation of our model through a peer-reviewed study published in leading medical journal BMJ. The paper found that Bicycle Health’s clinically backed telehealth treatment model can result in higher patient retention rates and increased access to care for those recovering from OUD.
As we look toward the future of Bicycle Health and OUD treatment, we remain committed to meeting patients wherever they are today – putting the tools and care they need to enter recovery at their fingertips.
