M3 Clinician is an integrative medical and patient-centered tool for primary care physicians to accurately monitor, treat, and monitor patients’ mental health. Mental health is an integral facet of healthcare. In fact, about 70% of primary-care visits are triggered by undiagnosed mental health illnesses or disorders. Additionally, four of the top 10 causes of disability in developed countries are mental health conditions: depression, bipolar disorder, schizophrenia, and obsessive-compulsive disorder. M3 Clinician’s mission is to help primary care physicians more quickly and accurately assess a patient’s mental wellness so they can refer them to a mental health professional if needed..
M3 Clinician’s Director of Provider Services and Support, Larry Gourdine, discussed mental health and the importance of screening on News Channel 8. M3 Clinician is an assessment taken by patients before their doctor’s visit and the results are used by physicians to augment their understanding of the patient’s mental health. The WhatsMyM3 app was developed for consumers to assess potential mood and anxiety disorders, including PTSD, Bipolar disorder, and depression based on 27 simple questions. The 27-question assessment is also available online with complete guides about how to understand mental health with your physician. WhatsMyM3 gives users a number rating based on their answers that can be discussed with physicians and healthcare providers. Watch the full video clip above.
