Jefferson Health announced Tuesday morning that it has developed a new digital platform focused on mental health along with NeuroFlow, a healthcare technology startup.
The digital platform will facilitate health care management for patients in between traditional office visits. Physicians will be able to do a number of things remotely, like assign a survey to their patient, set a reminder or encourage mindfulness and meditation sessions.
The data collected is sent to the care team to review for outlier behavior or struggles with treatment, Jefferson Health said in a statement. The platform will be rolled out at 20 locations across the Jefferson Health enterprise, including at primary care, OBGYN and behavioral health facilities.
Jefferson Health said a growing concern for postpartum mothers’ mental health and a widespread scope of anxiety and depression spurred the partnership and platform development.
NeuroFlow, cofounded in 2016 by CEO Christopher Molaro and COO Adam Pardes, raised a few million over the last few years to scale up its team and test its original product, a cloud-based patient engagement platform that’s been used by over 450 individual mental health practitioners and hospital systems, according to the company.
