THE PROBLEMS

IMPLEMENTING EVIDENCE

Although the principles of behavior change and effective therapy well established, many of these are hard to implement with current digital products and service models. Users want tools that are engaging and effective, and practitioners need methods that help them take their therapy out of the office and into people's daily lives.

CLIENT ENGAGEMENT

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?

 

OUR SOLUTION

We are developing a suite of software tools (standalone client mobile applications, HIPAA compliant data storage and analytics, practitioner platforms) that will not only allow individuals to manage their own mental health and wellness, but will also "click together" with practitioner tools that will allow health care professionals 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 self-directed behavior change and professional therapy process. Our key innovations include:

EFFORTLESS ASSESSMENT

Using mobile sensing, individuals can learn about the unseen relationships between their behavior patterns and their mood. This can be achieved without the need to complete lengthy and effortful questionnaires or diary entries. Practitioners can track their clients' progress and discover new patterns of behavior with minimal client burden.

OBJECTIVE ASSESSMENT

Self-report provides a limited view of a person's behavior. Mobile sensing provides new opportunities for continuous assessment of objective patterns of behavior relevant to mental health and functioning.

SMART NUDGES

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 provide frictionless movement between levels of support, which will enhance access to the right help when people need it  - from self-management through to face to face therapy and a range of options in between. This provides greater safety and engagement than can be achieved with digital products that only work directly with consumers.

 

BENEFITS ACROSS THE MENTAL HEALTH CARE SYSTEM

BENEFITS FOR PEOPLE

Individuals experience support that fits with their current needs (e.g., support for self-management of symptoms, when they are on a waiting list, between appointments). Specifically, they receive 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.
