5 ways mental health care is being revolutionized through technology

By Marketing Team

Mental health is often the one aspect that is overlooked during patient care. According to the CDC, 50% of people in the United States are estimated to have a diagnosable mental illness at some point in their lives and over 40% of those people live in areas where there is a mental health provider shortage.

At MyAdvisor, we know that good mental health allows individuals to cope with stress, work productively and live their best quality life. We are always staying ahead of the curve by using advanced technology solutions, and collaborating with innovators in the field, to create the best outcomes for those that we serve.

Technology is revolutionizing how and why we access mental health care, and for good reason.

  1. Remote Patient Monitoring

One way to reach those in mental health shortage areas is with technology. By using remote patient monitoring, phone and app technology, and distance counseling, technologies can help to assess, triage, and aid a patient in real-time and daily. Evidence-based mental health care platforms are designed to bring mental health resources to your fingertips.

  1. Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Natural Language Processing

Coupled with licensed professionals who are crisis center certified for suicide prevention and intervention, app technologies use AI and natural language processing to improve outcomes for individuals using the services. By processing keywords, AI anticipates the next action need and allows for 24/7/365 service wherever the individual is located.

  1. Early Indicators

By creating a patient dashboard, providers and professionals are viewing a daily snapshot of the patients’ wellbeing which seamlessly integrates into treatment plans. These metrics enable early detection of mood and symptoms allowing for immediate intervention.

  1. Reduction of Mental health Stigma

Mental health can be stigmatizing to those seeking help. Technology cannot replace licensed professionals, but it supports them. It allows for a lifeline that is always open, private, and secure. By using technology mental health care becomes more affordable and accessible.

  1. Connection

Connection is critical when an individual is isolated by crisis. By using app-based technology, AI, or tools such as texting/messaging, technology can be used to fill gaps when it comes to prevention, safety, and support. Technology is used as an engagement method to offer tools and resources to those who are most vulnerable.

As an integrated, proactive and preventive wellness program, MyAdvisor supports those who need any type of holistic health services. The use of chatbots with MyAdvisor’s additional services will allow experts to provide care coordination where it is needed most.
