Despite a $13.9 billion dollar health care price tag and skyrocketing rates of depression and deaths by suicide in youth, most teenagers do not get the evidence based mental health treatment they need. Evidence-based behavioral health treatments, especially when including a routine measurement practice, are proven to reduce symptoms and the costs associated with poor outcomes. Teenagers need brief, data-driven, regulatory-grade digital mental health interventions to support their symptom reduction. While digital mental health apps are plentiful, a fraction of those apps include any evidence-based components at all, and fractionally fewer include regulatory-grade evidence-based interventions. At the same time, providers (especially in primary care) need data-driven clinical decision-making tools and resources to deliver more efficient, precise, and cost-effective care that allows them to maximize clinical impact, while securing optimal reimbursement and generating additional revenue. Finally, as key stakeholders in their care, caregivers need data-driven psychoeducation and recommendations for how to be support their teenager’s mental health.
M-Select is a comprehensive digital mental health solution designed to connect the dots of mental health data, by using standardized patient-reported outcome data, to deliver teenagers with evidence-based digital interventions, while simultaneously leveraging data insights from youth measurement data to provide targeted decision-making support, as well as individualized psychoeducation and resources for the youth’s caregiver. M-Select is designed to be seamlessly integrated into the usual practice of a primary care provider, allowing them to capture revenue through currently available CPT codes for routine assessment, as well as ensure readiness for optimal reimbursement related to value-based care models that reimburse services according to measurable quality outcomes rather than service volume. Additionally, digital interventions are designed with a teenager in mind, and with regulatory-grade science-backed treatments to optimize youth engagement and improve clinical outcomes.
