BETHESDA, Md. (PRWEB) September 09, 2020
Mytonomy, a digital health company that enables asynchronous virtual care, announced today a comprehensive set of over 75 new enterprise behavioral health microlearning videos to deliver remote behavioral health services in digital health platforms and clinics. During a time of intense demand for behavioral health services, this offering will address the most pressing needs emerging during COVID-19, such as coping with isolation, depression, anxiety, overall mental health and wellness, as well as substance abuse, pain management, preventing opioid addiction, postpartum depression, and anxiety.
“There has been a significant uptick in folks struggling with serious behavioral health problems, but not everyone is able to access one-on-one treatment,” said Dr. Robert Trestman, chair of psychiatry at Carilion Clinic, chair of the American Psychiatric Association’s Council on Healthcare Systems and Financing and chair-elect of the American Hospital Association’s Behavioral Health Council. “The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) just completed a nationwide survey on the emotional and behavioral consequences of COVID-19. Overall, 41 percent reported significant psychiatric symptoms including anxiety or depression (31 percent), trauma and stress related symptoms (26 percent), started or worsened substance misuse (13 percent), and serious consideration of suicide (11 percent). With Mytonomy, we’re able to provide the essential information patients need to keep themselves and their families safe and well, within the comfort of their homes, allowing them to learn about their conditions and self-manage some of those symptoms while they wait to see a professional, either in person or through a telehealth mental health appointment.”
Market research indicates that a majority of behavioral health care services will migrate to virtual in the next 20 years, a shift Mytonomy is at the forefront of, combining existing models in new ways. By bringing together the best of enterprise SaaS, consumer tech, high-touch customer experience, with powerful analytics and award-winning short films, Mytonomy’s Patient Experience Cloud™ offers a differentiated approach to patient engagement.
“The number one request we have been receiving from providers and employers during this pandemic is for behavioral health content, and we are thrilled to be able to meet this rapidly growing need with an innovative approach that is tailored to patients. With behavioral health treatment, people often feel alone, isolated, and perhaps at times embarrassed or ashamed to seek help, and Mytonomy is giving them a private access to self-care on a wide range of behavioral health topics such as improving mood, developing resilience, managing and recognizing anxiety from the comfort of their living room,” said Anjali Kataria, CEO and co-founder of Mytonomy. “Our entry into behavioral health is a testament to the power and flexibility of Mytonomy’s virtual care platform, which is increasingly critical to health systems and remote patient monitoring clinics as they rely on Mytonomy’s content and platform to help them deliver care more efficiently via new virtual care models.”
Mytonomy has quickly become a major player in large-scale virtual health patient engagement and education. The company leverages a master content management solution at the heart of their novel CRM platform to deliver a digital front door to healthcare, helping clinicians and coaches deliver care to patients virtually, asynchronously and subsequently helping patients actively care for themselves in between and after their appointments from the comfort of their living room. Drawing from a library of over 1,500 peer-reviewed, clinically accurate microlearning videos originally produced in Mytonomy’s in-house studio, and combined with provider-specific content, Mytonomy is able to deliver a novel digital patient engagement strategy that saves time and reduces cost while improving quality of care.
“Behavioral health issues often afflict our patients with diabetes and other cardio-metabolic conditions, such as hypertension and hyperlipidemia, and can often impact the care of those conditions. The pandemic exacerbated the issues of isolation, anxiety, and other mental health conditions – so more than ever, we need a solution to help our patients,” said Dr. Christopher Cannon, Director, Education, Cardiovascular Medicine Innovation at Brigham and Women’s Hospital, a leading remote patient monitoring clinic. “Mytonomy is providing the critical digital health infrastructure and high production value video content that we need to reach patients at home, and engage them, when it’s harder and harder to access care – and they do this really well.”
Mytonomy has a strong track record of reaching broad, diverse audiences and improving relationships between patients and clinicians across multiple conditions, ranging from cardiometabolic to labor and delivery to surgery. Future releases in behavioral health will include sleep and sleep habits, opioid addiction and recovery, chronic pain management, smoking cessation and deeper coverage in depression and anxiety.
Recently, Mytonomy was awarded 19 Telly Awards for originally produced videos, ranked on the Inc. 5000 list of the fastest growing private companies in the nation, and named one of the top digital health companies by the UCSF Digital Health Awards.
