Counties in California are developing a new innovative technology platform, known as the Innovation Technology Suite Project (INN Tech Suite Project), to improve the public mental healthcare system.
Using $100 million in taxpayer money over a period of 5 years, the program will include a series of apps designed to improve customer satisfaction, help people comply with their medication regimen, and supplement their treatment with peer-support and mindfulness apps. For example, Mindstrong is an app that will help detect emotional crises before they happen by tracking an individual’s phone use.
While it is a challenging undertaking, it will fuel the way to regulated and effective health technology. To learn more, please visit: https://calmhsa.org/programs/innovation/
