1 in 4 adults suffer from a mental health condition
Very often those conditions affect a patient's physical health. Often times patients either don't know they have a mental health condition, or they are uncomfortable or afraid to share that information with their provider. As an example; studies show that “69% of patients diagnosed with depression presented with only physical symptoms".
There are more mental health conditions than just depression that affect a patient's physical health.
Anxiety, somatic symptom disorder, and substance use disorder are examples. To screen for all of these mental health conditions using standard paper instruments would take significant time, and be unnecessary in 3 out of 4 patients.
The current process doesn’t work.
It hurts patient and doctor. Pandora’s box. Stigma, manual processes and error. You must screen everyone, but today’s solution does not scale.
