Field Trip Health has launched a new digital platform for patients in Canada and the United States. The solution has been dubbed Portal, and it will provide those receiving Field Trip treatment with access to activity tracking and mood monitoring tools, meditations, and information about the psychedelic therapies they are receiving.
Portal is compliant with the latest Canadian and American data privacy regulations for the healthcare industry. The platform will eventually add new utilities that allow patients to communicate directly with a therapy team, either asynchronously or in real time. Therapists, meanwhile, will be able to use it to create custom treatment plans for each patient, and to track the progress of those patients once they start their program. Portal will also help consolidate and analyze the data gathered through Field Trip’s partnership with WHOOP, which has provided biometric wristbands to track the effects of different treatments.
Field Trip itself is based in Toronto, and specializes in psychedelic therapies for people with mental health. In addition to launching Portal, the company revealed that a Canadian military veteran was able to get his insurance provider to reimburse the cost of Field Trip’s “Core+” program, which sets a coverage precedent for other veterans interested in receiving treatment.
“We have always been focussed on the promise of increasing access to, and scaling, psychedelic therapies both through the development of new drugs and products, and building the physical and digital infrastructure necessary to deliver these life-transforming therapies,” said Field Trip Executive Chairman Ronan Levy. “With the first successful reimbursement for a military veteran in Canada, the rollout of Portal across North America and the expanded access at our Toronto location, we continue to live up to that promise.”
In response to popular demand, Field Trip has extended its operating hours at its Toronto location to see patients in the evening and on Saturdays. The company is also beginning to search for ways to attract investors outside of Canada.
WHOOP recently reached a valuation of $1.2 billion after completing a $100 million round of Series E funding.
