Hand-held devices ease burden of behavioral health assessment

Hand-held devices ease burden of behavioral health assessment

Disease Management Advisor 8(10): 152-6, 145

Numerous studies show that people suffering from depression and other behavioral health disorders are among the highest utilizers of care, but primary care physicians often miss behavioral diagnoses because they don't have the time to administer and analyze effective screens for these conditions. To ease this burden, a Denver, CO-based company has developed an approach that takes advantage of a hand-held device and an array of quick evidence-based screens that can point providers in the right direction in a matter of minutes.
