Bicycle Health’s care model has been studied by researchers and the results have been published in peer-reviewed journals. Several studies are pending, but the two published studies are available in BMJ Innovations and the Journal of Addiction Medicine.
The key findings from BMJ Innovations were around our patient retention and “no-show” rates. In the area of retention, the BMJ study showed that 80% of Bicycle Health’s insured patients remained in treatment at the 90 day mark, compared to an industry average of 44%, based on insurance claims. Regarding no-show rates, patients failed to attend their Bicycle Health provider appointments 9.5% of the time, compared to an industry average of 23 percent.
The findings from the Journal of Addiction Medicine were developed by RAND corporation and centered around the experience of patients who had received medication-assisted treatment for opioid use disorder in both an in-person setting as well as in a virtual/telehealth setting with Bicycle Health.
The study found that the majority of users were satisfied with the tele-OUD services offered by Bicycle Health because they were convenient and easy to use, they were able to receive treatment more quickly, and they found it easier to build a positive treatment community without facing in-person exposure to others with OUD.
