App guide targets best tools for behavioral healthcare treatment

A new app guide aims to help providers find and choose the best mobile health tool for behavioral healthcare treatment.

The appImpact guide, created by the D.N. Batten Foundation and Centerstone Research Institute (CRI), provides insight and guidance on integrating health tech into the behavioral diagnosis and care giving processes.

The appImpact guide, which offers insight from selection and implementation to evaluation, can serve as a framework to boost patient treatment outcomes and cost savings, according to Doub.

"More than 90 percent of Americans own a cell phone and 64 percent own smartphones," Doub said. "Our goal is to capitalize on these widely available technologies to help make healthcare more convenient, accessible and effective for both clinicians and patients."
