BEHAVIORAL CARE MANAGERS
50% of Americans with depression don't have any form of treatment . For many, the high motivation and effort required to seek help is too great of a barrier. Luckily, UpLift is a convenient and automated option that care managers can recommend to patients while they're waiting for (or reluctant to attend) their first appointment.
Each year, $44 billion of worker productivity in the United States is lost due to depression . UpLift is an excellent (and important) inclusion in any wellness benefits package.
HOSPITALS AND DOCTORS
Care providers who diagnose a patient with depression often prescribe anti-depressants and/or refer to a therapist or psychiatrist. Unfortunately, many patients don't follow up on these recommendations. With UpLift, providers can send their patients home with an app that they can use to help themselves immediately, to complement any prescriptions for medication.
INSURANCE AND HEALTH NETWORKS
Research shows that patients with depression cost over $450 more per month in healthcare expenses than the average chronic patient . UpLift is an inexpensive, easily-adopted self-help program for patients with depression, and is likely to save costs, both in patients' mental and physical health care.
Imagine if every prescription of your medication, device, or service included access for the patient to use UpLift for free. Computerized CBT can be useful alongside various forms of treatment, including medication and face-to-face therapy.
