The Behavioral Health Checkup contains our proprietary Behavioral Health Risk Assessment (BHRA) which screens health plan members or patients for up to 15 different behavioral health conditions in one streamlined assessment. Members/patients can be prompted to conduct the BHRA screening by a health plan coach, or, in the case of a medical group practice, by office staff, prior to the patient’s next office visit. Screenings can be completed by members/patients in the privacy of their own homes, or in the office waiting room.
Upon submission of the screening by the member/patient, the member’s/patient's screening data/results are electronically transmitted to their health coach, physician, or to a medical group's onsite behavioral health provider, much like lab results for bio-metric screenings. This gives the coach, physician or BH provider adequate time to review the results, and provide intervention, or make recommendations or referrals as needed.
By taking a more holistic approach to member/patient care, and identifying those individuals who are dealing with any number of behavioral health conditions, treatment can be implemented sooner, and ongoing costs mitigated.
The case-finding and intervention methodology employed by the Behavioral Health Checkup platform is of particular value to both Patient-Centered Medical Homes (PCMHs) and Accountable Care Organizations (ACOs) whose models emphasize behavioral health integration and costs savings, as well as to concierge physician practices that wish to provide a more comprehensive, holistic standard of care to their patients.
Here are the conditions that the BHRA screens for:
Should the check-up results indicate that the patient/member is “at risk” for one or more of the foregoing conditions, he/she will then be directed to a separate intervention module for each condition that has been identified.
Each intervention module contains a validated screening tool that enables the patient/member to accurately measure his/her level of risk. If the patient/member scores in an "at risk" range, the module will also:
