More objective diagnoses by you the practitioner through more open and honest patient responses than would be provided in a traditional face to face consultation. Research shows patients respond more honestly and openly to computer-based behavioral health assessment tools than they do in face to face consultations.
More accurate diagnoses by you the practitioner because the comprehensive nature of the Mind Screen assessment enables you to identify co-morbid primary and secondary disorders which might otherwise be difficult to detect.
Early detection and early intervention for faster patient recovery before disorders become acute. With the Mind Screen assessing 31 common and treatable mental health issues, you get a bigger and more detailed picture of your patients comorbid behavioral health issues. This enables you to quickly make accurate and more timely diagnoses and better informed treatment decisions which generally leads to your patient getting better faster.
Increasted rate of diagnosis by practitioners who use the Mind Screen. A 1998-1999 national audit of Australian Family Physicians involving 46,515 patients showed that general practitioners did not recognize behavioral health disorders in 56% of patients. The Mind Screen increases the likelihood of you detecting your patients' behavioral health disorders.
Improved monitoring of patient progress, increased treatment and medication compliance rates and fewer missed appointments when using the Mind Screen. Just as dieters comply with their diet in order to get a good 'weigh-in' result, Mind Screen patients stick with their medication or other treatment actions more readily with the Mind Screen because they want to improve their Continuous Monitoring Graph. They don't miss their appointments as much because they want to do their follow-up Mind Screen and make progress with their Treatment Plan. The Mind Screen graphs make behavioral health tangible and for the first time ever they can 'see' their improvement over time and share their progress with their family and close friends.
Your patients will love the Mind Screen. Why, because it is so convenient and it saves them time and money. In 15-30 minutes of their own time, they are able to answer a bunch of questions that would normally take 5-10 times as long in a face to face consultation. This means they don't have to have repeated consultations over many weeks or months simply to provide you with basic information and they get to the treatment plan stage far sooner.
