CloudMD at the Association of Family Health Team (AFHTO) Conference to Showcase Positive Patient Mental Health Outcomes from Innovative Programs
Programs delivered faster time to access mental health services and increased access to those requiring support outside traditional office hours and in underserved areas.
Vancouver, BC, October 24, 2023 – CloudMD Software & Services Inc. (TSXV: DOC, OTCQX: DOCRF, Frankfurt: 6PH) (the “Company” or “CloudMD”), an innovative health services company transforming the delivery of care, today announced that it will be at the AFHTO Conference sharing positive outcomes from CloudMD providing multi-modal mental health support directly to Ontario residents and via a referral partnership with Family Health Teams across Ontario. The presentation will include results from a CloudMD Therapist-Assisted Internet-Delivered Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (MindBeacon) program (“TAiCBT”), which was offered to Ontario residents as part of the government’s pandemic response.
Demand for mental health support services continues to grow exponentially, resulting in long waitlists for individuals to access critical mental health support services. To meet these demands, between January 2023 and March 2023, FHTs from across Ontario engaged in a partnership with CloudMD to provide therapist-assisted Internet-delivered Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (TAiCBT) and Virtual (“face-to-face”) Therapy. The innovative partnership creates a healthcare ecosystem that is efficient, accessible, and responsive to the ever-evolving needs of the community healthcare sector and Ontario patients.
“We are delighted to be at the AFHTO conference sharing some of the positive patient mental health outcomes resulting from our public-private partnerships,” said Karen Adams, CEO of CloudMD. “A core tenet of our approach to providing holistic healthcare solutions is to ensure that they are patient-centric and deliver measurable positive outcomes that recognize the strong relationship between physical and mental health. The results show mental health solutions that provide anytime/anywhere access produce demonstrable positive outcomes. Over the course of our COVID program study, 90 percent of patients engaged with therapy outside traditional office hours, and 60 percent of patients with clinically severe depression symptoms experienced reliable symptom improvement. We are especially proud to note that this was accomplished with lower wait times (days instead of weeks or months), increased access for underserved communities, and reduced costs compared to traditional Cognitive Behavior Therapy programs.”
Attendees of the AFHTO Conference are invited to visit Poster Board #14 to learn about how they could leverage this game-changing program to provide easy-to-access, high-quality mental health support to their patients.
