"Voi is poised to transform the delivery of mental health through technology, analytics, behavioral health expertise and community building.”
SAN FRANCISCO (PRWEB) December 13, 2017
First Opinion, Inc. announced today it has acquired Incente, LLC, a behavioral health technology company based in Hanover, NH. In addition to the acquisition, First Opinion also announced the formation of a new business unit called Voi (http://voi.com). Voi will add Incente’s offerings to its existing technologies to help organizations detect and prevent suicide.
Incente was created by clinical psychologists and professors at the Geisel School of Medicine at Dartmouth College. Incente’s software platform, Proxi (http://proxi.care), was designed to provide easy access to and completion of behavioral health assessments. In addition, it enables online collaboration and connection between someone suffering with a behavioral health disorder and his/her family, friends, behavioral health coaches and clinicians. It was a finalist for the Mobileys Award - an annual competition that challenges innovators across the U.S. to create game changing apps, products, and services - and was a finalist for the 2016 New Hampshire Social Innovation Challenge.
Voi partners with healthcare providers and organizations to detect and prevent suicide using advanced technology tools. Its primary product, Voi Detect, can generate a real-time risk score for individuals and provide advanced analytics to monitor and track operational and compliance metrics, which ultimately leads to saving lives.
“Bill and his team are the experts in this area of behavioral health and with them on board we can really save some lives,” said McKay Thomas, co-founder and CEO of First Opinion.
“With First Opinion’s acquisition of Incente, Voi is poised to transform the delivery of mental health through technology, analytics, behavioral health expertise and community building,” said Bill Hudenko, PhD, assistant professor at Dartmouth’s Geisel School of Medicine and now Chief Science Officer at Voi.
