Many industry colleagues we talk to about continuous behavioral health measurement (CBHM), tell us they can build their own capability in-house. While we respect their ambition, we believe such ambition underestimates the complexity of a CBHM capability. We have learned a lot in nearly a decade of CBHM development. Not least we have learned how challenging and complex CBHM development is.
CBHM is transforming mental health research and treatment as it provides behavioral insights, between appointments and beyond self-reporting. These insights reflect mental states more richly than status quo approaches. To this end, we believe companies that have clinical & real-world research and care delivery expertise should accelerate their progress by partnering with companies, like Ksana Health, who have done the complex work of developing CBHM. Through such partnering, they can avoid unproductive reinvention and accelerate research and care improvements.
Considerations Before You Build Your Own CBHM!
Our experience cautions would-be CBHM developers to consider the following complexities, and to consider “buy” partnerships as an alternative:
Ksana Health: A Good CBHM “Buy” Partnership Option
Ksana Health has been developing its expertise in these areas for the last 8 years in implementations across more than 45 academic and clinical research and healthcare institutions. In this area, we have the expertise, even Google has engaged for advice. Continuous behavioral health measurement is part of an emergent generation of technologies with promise to transform how we better assure prevention of and recovery from mental distress and disorder. Over time this capability will evolve to a ubiquitous element of research and care.
If you have been thinking about how to enhance your mental and behavioral health research and care offering, let’s talk. If you would like to know more about CBHM, take a look at our Introduction to CBHM whitepaper.
