SAN CLEMENTE, Calif., April 24, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Sovereign Health, a leading national provider of behavioral health treatment services, announced that its Chief Executive Officer (CEO), Dr. Tonmoy Sharma, has been selected by the Orange County Business Journal (OCBJ), a weekly print and online newspaper covering business in Orange County, to participate in a health care roundtable. As many of the new health care reform provisions go into effect, there are still significant unanswered questions. The OCBJ has asked Dr. Sharma, one of community's leading experts in the field, to share his extensive knowledge of the most important issues confronting the health care industry today.
"In our desire to be leaders of disruptive innovation – innovations that create a new market network and value network – Sovereign Health has adopted many new technologies and created an internal workflow system that leverages our house software capabilities," Dr. Tonmoy Sharma said. "These systems improve the process of working with substance abuse, physical or sexual abuse, and suicidal or homicidal patients. Our company is also leveraging telehealth and smart phone apps to reach out to those who cannot physically attend treatment at our locations. We are also using telehealth for our continuing care program to ensure that we are following up and providing both case management and treatment to our patients."
Dr. Tonmoy Sharma has been recognized with numerous awards, honors and grants for his work in advancing mental health and its treatment in the United States, Europe and Southeast Asia. He is a prolific researcher and scientist as well as the author or co-author of more than 200 peer-reviewed articles and five books on schizophrenia and mental illness. Dr. Sharma has served on numerous editorial boards, acted as peer reviewer for 14 international medical journals, and has been on various advisory boards governing the development of antipsychotics. He currently co-hosts KABC 790 AM's "In Your Right Mind," a cutting-edge, weekly radio show that covers various topics in behavioral health, and was recently selected by the OCBJ to be listed in the OC500 as one of the most influential people in the Orange County business community. He serves on the board of directors of the National Alliance on Mental Illness Orange County (NAMI OC).
