Behavioral health is a fundamental and persistently overlooked aspect of overall health. Mental and substance use disorders impact a staggering 970 million people worldwide, with over US$1 trillion in global economic burden each year. Despite the skyrocketing crisis, progress has lagged behind other disease areas. Less than half of those living with major depression, the most widespread mental illness, reach remission on currently available treatments. Recent rising awareness has driven demand onto a system not equipped to support the depth and breadth of need.
There is a debilitating evidence gap that inhibits research and innovation, stemming from inherent limitations in behavioral health: complex disease etiologies, lack of quantifiable biomarkers, and institutional silos. Despite decades of research, we still do not know how to alleviate most behavioral health disorders.
We need new solutions, and we need them now.

Rows of data
Years of longitudinal data
diverse psychiatry clinics
Over 20 years of longitudinal data and patient records spanning both inpatient and outpatient sites including hospitals, emergency departments, and community psychiatry clinics
Meaningful clinical information not typically captured in a structured way is transformed into analyzable keywords representing a large family of symptoms, side effects, and external stressors
Quantitative outcome measure allows users to track patient function and outcomes over time and understand efficacy of different interventions
Our novel Natural Language Processing (NLP) algorithm transforms rich clinician notes into structured data that predicts disease severity.
Clinician notes are valuable troves of information on patient experience, treatment response, and outcomes that are not captured in other EHR or claims data sources. Analyzing unstructured notes is typically arduous and time-consuming.
Our proprietary NLP model unlocks insights from clinician notes, allowing for large-scale analysis and disease modeling. We have over 300 psychiatry-specific structured labels on granular symptoms, side effects, external stressors, and more. These labels can also be used to predict disease severity based on CGI-S scores, opening up a new frontier for scalable analysis of patient experiences through clinician notes.
Going beyond standard context-aware keyword search NLP approaches, our proprietary NLP models are designed specifically to handle the complexity of psychiatric care, which lacks standardized terminology and relies heavily on subjective assessments and verbose descriptions. Our NLP approach leverages the latest innovation in machine learning and language modeling to interpret full sentences using an attention based deep learning, producing granular structured data labels.
