    Designing a Digital Clinic for Behavioral Health: Equity, Access, Workflow, and Technology Considerations

    Digital Psych  

    WEBINAR - Part 1

    While technology has the potential to increase access to care for behavioral health services, actual clinical implementation efforts remain scarce. Many digital solutions are innovative but not designed to work in demanding clinic environments and serve the dual needs of patients and staff. This talk with focus on the Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center Digital Clinic and explore how the clinic was designed to promote equity, access, and workflow considerations.

    Towards equity, digital literacy and outreach programs will be discussed with the goal of showing how it is necessary to build such efforts into new efforts as a first step. The mindLAMP app designed by the division will also be discussed towards demonstrating flexible uses of mobile technology as well as how digital phenotyping can improve care outcomes. Finally, the role of the digital navigator will be introduced as a solution to workflow considerations and towards facilitating implementation. Training and other resources to create similar programs will be shared.

    Lessons to be Learned: 

    • Understand the role of mobile health in augmenting behavioral health  
    • Assess how the digital navigator role can assist in implementation 
    • Identify cases where digital phenotyping can improve clinical outcomes

    How Health Systems are Leveraging Health IT to Improve Their Performance: Lessons from 24 US Health Systems

    Healthcare is increasingly delivered through integrated health systems that consist of multiple hospitals and medical groups. These complex organizations are engaging in a range of activities to improve their performance with health information technology – and some are far more advanced than others. In this webinar, you will learn findings from a large study based on interviews with executives of 24 U.S. health systems. We will discuss the key health IT-related activities that are common across health systems, which activities require substantial investment and energy, and characteristics of health system that are more and less advanced in succeeding in these activities.

    • Identify the key activities US health systems are doing to leverage health IT to improve their performance
    • Understand the wide range of health systems’ progress within these activities
    • Discuss approaches to help further support health systems to better leverage health IT
