Using mobile technology to address the gap between prevalence, diagnosis, and care in behavioral health
TangramCare will use the award to validate a format of our screening platform that is specifically tailored to serving the Medicaid population. In collaboration with a clinical partner, TangramCare will validate the screening platform's patient acceptability, completion rates, sensitivity, specificity, cultural suitability and care team acceptability in underserved populations. Once validated, they hope to make the low-cost platform available to Federally Quality Health Centers and other such community service organizations that serve underserved populations nationwide with a view towards promoting behaviorally informed care.
