THE KSANA PRACTITIONER PLATFORM
Ksana Health is developing the first comprehensive digital platform that allows practitioners to integrate objective mobile sensing and HIPAA compliant client communication tools into their practice. If you want to learn more about our plans, get in touch by clicking on the button below.
IMPLEMENTING EVIDENCE BASED PRACTICE
Although the principles of effective therapy and behavior change are well established, many of these are hard to implement with current service models. Practitioners need methods that help them take their therapy out of the office and into people's daily lives.
Clients often have trouble completing home-based assessment and behavior change tasks, which can slow down or prevent their recovery. They also often don't engage well with stand-alone digital tools.
PROVIDING SUPPORT BETWEEN SESSIONS
Clients experience their greatest challenges between sessions when the therapist is not present. How do we provide support in those critical moments?
WAITING LIST MANAGEMENT
Most mental health services experience more demand than they can manage and have waiting lists or need to triage clients. How can you provide support and "watchful waiting" for clients during this time?
We are developing a suite of software tools (client mobile applications, HIPAA compliant data storage and analytics, practitioner dashboards) that will allow practitioners to leverage their client's own mobile devices in the assessment and treatment process (i.e., no special equipment required).
Our platform is the first to seamlessly integrate mobile sensing and assessment, and smart AI-driven nudges to support behavior change, into the therapy process. Our key innovations include:
Using mobile sensing, practitioners can track their clients' progress and discover new patterns of behavior with minimal client burden.
Self-report of symptoms provides a limited view of the client's status. Mobile sensing provides new opportunities for continuous assessment of objective patterns of behavior relevant to mental health and functioning.
Our technology uses nudge theory and artificial intelligence to provide personalized nudges that support clients to achieve their planned behavior change by delivering these messages at the moments when they will be most effective.
CLIENT SAFETY AND ENGAGEMENT
Our tools are designed to leverage and enhance the effectiveness of the practitioner-client relationship - thereby providing client safety and engagement that cannot be achieved with digital products that only work directly with consumers.
BENEFITS ACROSS THE MENTAL HEALTH CARE SYSTEM
BENEFITS FOR CLIENTS
Clients experience more support outside consultations (i.e., while on the waiting list or between appointments), greater support for their day-to-day efforts to make positive behavior change, and are empowered to take greater control of their health by learning about hidden patterns in their behavior.
BENEFITS FOR PRACTITIONERS
Practitioners are able to support client compliance with assessment and therapy homework tasks, learn about patterns in their clients' behavior that would not be revealed by self-report alone, and facilitate client recovery by more effectively supporting their clients' efforts to achieve positive change.
BENEFITS FOR MENTAL HEALTH CARE ADMINISTRATORS
Administrators can receive real-time (de-identified) reports on the progress of clients in their service and can monitor their service by collecting objective data on the kinds of interventions that are being delivered by their practitioners.
