Evaluating Behavioral Health Apps: Insights from 650 apps and 70,000 data points in the M-Health Index and Navigation Database

Digital Psych

WEBINAR - Part 2

There are 1000s of behavioral health apps. But which are right for your organization to recommend or endorse? This talk will discuss the potential and the pitfalls in the dynamic behavioral app space with a focus on the latest research, regulatory changes, payment schemes, and evaluation metrics. Whether seeking to offer apps to your employees, offer them as a health benefit to patients, or help your clinical teams make sense of the confusing marketplace, this talk is designed to give you direct answers and concrete steps to follow.

Using the M-Health Index and Navigation Database (mindapps.org) from Beth Isreal Deaconess Medical Center as an example, interactive demonstrations of app evaluation will be offered as well as lessons from creating digital formularies for diverse healthcare organizations. Experiences using apps with clients and important considerations when working with app vendors will also be shared.  

Lessons to be Learned: 

  • Identify red flags when evaluating apps and know which are best to avoid 
  • Create a personalized formulary of apps customized to your organization  
  • Be able to evaluate the health and economic return on health apps by asking the right questions about their clinical value

Speaker: 

  • John Torous MD, Director of Digital Psychiatry at BIDMC, Assistant Professor at Harvard Medical School
