The Association for Utah Community Health is launching a care management project that aims to improve patient satisfaction and health outcomes while reducing costs for treating behavioral health patients through use of smartphone app technology.
The project, called Utah SmartCare, is a grant-funded quality improvement project that aims to improve patient satisfaction and health outcomes while reducing costs for treating patients with mental illness through use of a smartphone app developed by Cambridge, Mass.-based Ginger.io. It will launch at six clinical sites, including three local mental health authorities and two health centers.
During initial implementation, the program will target 500 patients with co-morbid conditions or a mental illness plus a physical health condition such as hypertension. It is made possible through a grant from the Cambia Healthcare Foundation along with in-kind support from other local project partners.
