To support better outcomes, improve care quality, and reduce the risks associated with gaps in care, more providers are leveraging on-demand tools that empower consumers with evidence-based resources. These tools can help consumers build resiliency and create real and lasting change in their behavioral health and well-being.

Peer-reviewed studies show that technology-enabled services and strategies designed to support greater consumer engagement in behavioral healthcare are highly effective in helping individuals address depression, anxiety, stress, substance use, insomnia, and chronic pain – while also supporting the physical and spiritual aspects of whole-person health.

Elements addressed in this webinar include:

  • Why consumer engagement is critical to value-based care
  • How consumer engagement is evolving and maturing
  • What behavioral health agencies should consider when looking at consumer engagement technologies
  • A case study exploring the real-world usage of myStrength, a digital consumer engagement tool

Upon completion of this webinar, attendees will be able to:

  • Articulate the drivers of the consumer engagement movement
  • Identify the most impactful strategies and technology tools that can help support greater client engagement
  • Understand how to supplement direct clinical care with on-demand digital behavioral health resources
