Our Behavioral Health Screening provides you with a researched and validated multi-dimensional assessment tool for identifying, tracking and monitoring a multitude of behavioral health issues.
Unlike most mental health screens which detect one condition at a time, typically just depression, the Behavioral Health Assessment from CTS™ approach utilizes a validated multi-dimensional assessment tool which tracks SEVEN of the most prevalent issues with one test producing quantifiable results specifically, PTSD, Bipolar, Depression, Anxiety, Addiction, Suicide and Functional Impairment.
- 60,000,000 Americans are estimated to be in need of some form of mental health treatment
- There are only about 40,000 licensed Psychologists and Psychiatrists practice in the country
- Simply put, demand for treatment does not meet supply of providers leaving millions of people undiagnosed and/or untreated.
Our assessment fits into practice workflow, yields standardized reports, and connects with most electronic health records (EHRs)Information developed through our assessment provides a comprehensive profile of each patient, including functional status, drug use, and thoughts of suicide. The information can be used in measurement-based care, revealing changes in a patient’s mental health status, practice patterns, and aggregate population health data.
Reducing Healthcare Spending With Digital Behavioral Health
With a population of 4 million people that’s a potential savings of
Medical treatment is much more costly when behavioral health
issues have not been identified early on. For example, for
individuals with depression and diabetes, researchers found that
improved treatment of depression not only led treated individuals to
fewer days with depression but also resulted in lower overall
outpatient medical costs (Simon, et al., 2007)
A 2015 study in the Journal of Clinical Psychiatry estimated that
depression costs the United States $210 billion a year, with 40% of
those costs related directly to depression, and the rest related to
indirect costs, such as lost productivity.
Validated with Proven Results
The University of North Carolina, headed by Dr. Bradley Gaynes, assisted by Joanne DeVeaugh-Geiss, conducted a study of 647 patients at the UNC Family Practice Clinic. This study confirmed the validity of the our M3 Assessment as a diagnostic tool, utilizing the Mini International Neuropsychiatric Interview as the comparison gold standard.
The M-3 can reduce missed psychiatric diagnoses and facilitate proper treatment of identified cases.
