MD - CEO & Medical Director - Envision ADHD
Dr. Jake Behrens is a technology-minded, Board-Certified Psychiatrist and CEO of Envision ADHD. He graduated from The University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health and completed his psychiatry residency at the University of Wisconsin Hospital and Clinics. Following residency, he continued as an Assistant Clinical Professor in the UW Psychiatry Department and developed a niche in Adult ADHD and the use of technology in clinical assessment and outcome tracking. Over the years treating busy working adults, he witnessed how in-person meetings and monthly paper refills affected the home and work life of such individuals and envisioned how technology and alternative clinical models may be beneficial. From here, the technical and legal workflows of Envision ADHD emerged. In the summer of 2016, he made the decision to leave his corner office, city, house and academic job to pursue the Envision ADHD clinical startup in Milwaukee, WI. A few years later, he continues to evolve and grow Envision ADHD while bringing software and workflows developed in house to outside psychiatric consulting roles serving severe mental illness in the community, opiate abuse treatment, depression in rural geriatric communities, and underserved inner city primary care clinics.
Through the use of telemedicine and flexible scheduling available through Envision ADHD resources, Jake serves as the Medical Director of both the 10th Street Comprehensive Treatment Center and Senior Life Solutions Intensive Outpatient Program at the Richland Center Hospital. He also serves as the Collaborative Psychiatrist at a participating University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee inner city primary care clinic and a Consulting Psychiatrist with Brightside Health and American Well.
He currently serves as an appointed member of the American Psychiatric Association’s Council on Quality Care and Registry Oversight Committee. He is an elected Board Member of the American Professional Society of ADHD and Related Disorders. He serves on the Express Script Medical Advisory Board and provides physician technology consulting for Assurex Health and Otsuka Pharmaceutical. He previously served as an Alternate Delegate to the American Medical Association House of Delegates and as the chair of the AMA Young Physician Section Innovation Committee.
Dr. Behrens is the physician co-founder of Health Tech MKE and his passion is advising and bringing a physician/psychiatric voice and critical clinical eye to emerging health startups while building the community of resources for entrepreneurial physicians that he wished would have been available to him when preparing to leave institutional medicine.
