Language difficulties; Non smart phone users; No internet connection etc.
User data are translated into patient’s profiles, session history and tracked progress.
With the patients, the data input into the system are the selections for the health assessment and their daily behavior progress. Providers then is able to enter an appropriate time for regular assessment for the patients.
From the search of app store on my phone, there is no app has similar function as Cloud9 does. Most of the apps just provide facts and general treatment to the user but not the interactions with parties like Cloud9 does.
As mentioned above, Cloud9 has partnership with Capital Factory, IBM, Telemental Health Institute and Health Wildcatters. But for a system to work, it is more important that patients, providers and organizations have come and work together.
“Cloud9 is built upon a nimble and secure back end infrastructure. We can integrate with the leading EMR, scheduling, pharmacy and payer systems, via API, SDK and HL7. Not just HIPAA compliant, but HIPAA auditable.”
The connection for the patients and the providers can build upon the gamified health assessment via the smart phone device. Then these data are input to the provider’s section and the organizations’ section for further analytical uses. The engagement with the patients can also be done with licensed Video Chat for therapy. Or the let the patients input their information with a trackable plan.
The data is visualized via a Dashboard for the Provider and Operational Analytics for the Organizations.
Dashboard: Easily manage all of your patient communications with a concise dashboard for your provider profile, session scheduling and application settings. Also, view your patient’s profiles, session history and tracked progress.
Operational Analytics: Cloud 9’s Personal Mental Health Record allows patients access from their mobile device that is always in reach. This creates exponentially more clinical data points to produce new recovery plans and accurate operational guidelines. Providers can then push adaptable, updated messages and reminders. Behavioral Health Provider & HR Optimization ensures high demand providers are accessed efficiently throughout care cycle, so “the right staff is with the right patient at the right time”. Managers easily leverage these new insights through Cloud 9’s Administrative Analytics.
As previously mentioned in question two, there is a lot of features that Clod9 offered to specific group of users. With these features and functions, the users can connect together.
