Our Story

As a critical care physician, Dr. Rawat experienced first hand the frustrations of using inefficient manual processes to locate the proper care for her patients whose conditions she couldn’t treat in the facilities she was serving, including behavioral health conditions. That frustration led to the development of OpenBeds®, a software platform that leverages today’s technology to improve transparency, communications and ultimately care.

In 2015, the National Institute on Drug Abuse approached Dr. Rawat to partner to develop our existing technology to service the opioid epidemic and other behavioral health conditions.

She met with over 150 providers, administrators and government officials in an effort to learn and address their challenges. The results of that development represent the software platform we promote today. And we are delighted that it is enabling states, local governments and treatment facilities to better serve those in need.

Our team is made up of physicians, engineers, and subject matter experts and business professionals who share a deep commitment to improve care delivery and quality, and improve access to mental health and substance use disorder treatment.
