Modern Healthcare - - BEST PRACTICES -

Iden­tify pa­tients at risk of de­pres­sion and anx­i­ety while man­ag­ing chronic ill­nesses such as heart dis­ease and di­a­betes.

En­roll pa­tients into on­line cog­ni­tive be­hav­ioral ther­apy for eight to 12 weeks, dur­ing which they’ll par­tic­i­pate in ques­tion-and-an­swer mod­ules sim­i­lar to psy­chother­apy.

Check a pa­tient’s progress through on­line sup­port­ers who com­mu­ni­cate to a care team whether the pa­tient may be in need of more in­ten­sive treat­ment.
