Digital behavioral health is a critical component of the healthcare system, especially given the massive shortage of mental health professionals in the U.S. Providing the right digital behavioral health solutions can improve access and outcomes for a wide swath of the population without further burdening the healthcare system. But not all solutions meet the same quality standards, which is why Chartis—a leading healthcare advisory firm—developed a useful guide highlighting the core competencies health systems and plans should look for when evaluating new solutions.
The recently published whitepaper, “5 Essential Elements for a Successful Digital Behavioral Health Program,” identified core areas that digital solutions must address:
- Patient Experience
- Care Team Engagement
- Clinical Workflow Adaptation
- Performance Management and Reporting
- Data Management
Throughout the paper Chartis offered real-world examples of effective solutions in action, and we were honored to have NeuroFlow’s Matt Miclette, VP of Clinical Operations, featured. Matt explained how NeuroFlow provides real-time performance tracking to quickly triage a population and track risk over time. This approach to measurement-based care allows the NeuroFlow platform to tailor resources and deliver timely interventions to individuals before they reach crisis.
