Pediatric Behavioral Health Technology Services in a Hospital Setting

The purpose of this solicitation is for Spring Point Partners to select up to two pediatric hospitals or health systems to receive two-year access to NeuroFlow’s HIPAA-compliant digital health platform with the goal of improving pediatric patient outcomes for mental health conditions. In turn, Spring Point is optimistic that the awarded hospitals will be able to drive meaningful clinical and financial outcomes for the populations they serve.

Even as one of the wealthiest nations on earth, the poverty rate in the United States exceeds that of many other countries. Children and adults living in under-resourced communities are at increased risk for psychological disorders and few gain access to high-quality mental health services creating an urgency for mental health care models that can meet the needs of these vulnerable populations. 

Recognizing the critical role that children’s hospitals and primary care providers play in delivering care to children suffering from behavioral health conditions, NeuroFlow and Spring Point Partners are excited to join forces with organizations to address the problem head-on with a data-backed solution

Spring Point has committed to donating $400,000 of NeuroFlow services for up to two nonprofit pediatric hospitals or health systems.  The pilot program will be for two years.  The Awardees will be responsible for paying 15% of the costs of the NeuroFlow Services, annually at the beginning of each year.

  • $400,000 of total funding available
  • Spring Point Partners will cover 85% of the cost of the total value
  • Awardee is responsible for the remaining 15% of total value
    • The 15% cost will be paid annually at the beginning of each year 
  • Term of award is 2 years

For Example: An award with a total contract value of $230,000 would result in an in-kind donation of $200,000, with the Awardee responsible for the remaining 15% of the contract ($30,000 paid over two years)..

Spring Point Partners will fund a donation to cover the costs of NeuroFlow software to awarded hospitals and health systems to provide access to a HIPAA compliant digital health platform with the goal of improving patient outcomes with respect to decreasing the symptoms of mental health conditions.
