MedPass, a subscription-based platform powered by HealthBird, is the first to integrate the new platform into its proactive health management app for SMBs and freelancers
SEATTLE–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Aiberry®, a leading AI-powered mental health assessment platform, today announced that it has expanded its capabilities to include screening for anxiety disorders, in addition to the clinically-validated depression assessments it has provided to date. The comprehensive anxiety screening includes assessments for five distinct anxiety disorders including generalized anxiety disorder, social anxiety disorder, panic disorder, post traumatic stress syndrome (PTSD), and obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD). MedPass, a subscription-based platform powered by HealthBird, focused on proactive health management, is partnering with Aiberry on the expanded platform.
Mental Health Crisis Growing Rapidly
Anxiety and mental health are fast becoming a growing issue in the United States with 18% of Americans suffering from anxiety each year, according to the National Institutes of Health. Anxiety disorders are associated with more than $4.1 billion in indirect workplace costs and lead to an average of 4.6 work days lost to disability per month and 5.5 workdays of reduced productivity per month. The U.S. Health and Human Services Administration recently called for anxiety screenings for all adults under the age of 65 to better manage this condition through early diagnosis and treatment.
“Anxiety disorders have far-reaching implications, impacting communication, relationships, performance, productivity, and more,” said Irena Tigranyan, COO and Co-Founder of HealthBird. “Subscribers to the MedPass platform are technology-forward and proactive with all of their health needs. Having access to Aiberry will be a powerful tool for them to be proactive with their mental health. We are excited to be their launch partner.”
Aiberry Anxiety Screening
Mental health apps and providers currently use the GAD-7 paper-based assessment form that only measures generalized anxiety. Transcending the status quo, Aiberry’s Anxiety Screening includes generalized anxiety disorder, social anxiety disorder, panic disorder, post-traumatic stress syndrome (PTSD), and obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD).
Aiberry’s goal is to provide more precise mental health care assessments through an engaging technology-forward application in order to help people identify anxiety symptoms early, helping to reduce the likelihood of more severe disease.
Aiberry’s AI-powered platform offers quantifiable and reproducible outcomes through its AI-powered virtual therapeutic assistant, Botberry. This interactive tool ensures users feel at ease while providing essential mental health information. Following each screening, clinicians, wellness management companies, and now MedPass users receive valuable insights into their mental health status.
