Osmind, a healthcare technology company developing the first digital infrastructure for neuropsychiatry, has announced its Series A funding closing at $15 million. Funding will support key hires and further expand its electronic health record (EHR) and research platform. Osminds solution currently serves over 215 mental health practices in 38 states across the country. The organization will continue to develop its research platform, which enables the discovery, development, and delivery of new diagnostics and therapeutics for treatment-resistant mental health conditions.
DIGITAL MENTAL HEALTH TECHNOLOGIES
Confidence in digital health technologies’ and tools’ potential continues to progress as health systems continue to invest in a more digital health care experience – focusing on connecting with, communicating with, and monitoring patients outside the health system’s walls. Digital patient access has undergone a significant evolution during the pandemic, and consumer preferences have evolved along with it.
Health systems are under tremendous pressure to provide convenient access to care for patients while tightly managing operational costs. At the same time, over the past decade, patients (consumers) have taken a more active role in educating themselves and directly managing their health. And with more than 80 percent of consumers now researching their healthcare options, new technologies provide consumers new ways to engage in healthy living and manage certain conditions. In other words, technology is empowering consumers to take control of their health.
An estimated one-third of patients with depression are treatment-resistant, meaning they have failed two or more adequate trials of conventional therapies. The current mental healthcare landscape focuses largely on subclinical patients and promoting wellness, leaving a high unmet need for more effective, personalized treatment options for patients with acute or severe conditions. Osmind delivers real-world insights at scale to drive therapy development and inform best practices for patient care in a field experiencing rapid change. The company aims to usher in a new era of neuropsychiatry by powering advancements similar to those made in oncology over the past decade—leveraging technology and data to enable precision mental healthcare.
THE OSMIND SOLUTION
Osmind is on a mission to empower clinicians and researchers to bring innovative mental health treatments to patients who need them most. According to the organization’s website, its EHR is the first and only software that solves specific challenges faced by innovative mental health practices. The EHR anchors a digital infrastructure that unlocks precision psychiatry and informs best practices for patient care. This platform enables the discovery, development, and delivery of next-generation treatments such as novel classes of molecular therapeutics, neuromodulation techniques, psychedelic medicines, medication-assisted therapy, and digital technologies.
Osmind’s modernized EHR is the first and only software that solves specific challenges faced by innovative mental health practices. It allows clinicians to track measurement-based outcomes for intensive treatment modalities, deliver more tailored care, automate compliance processes for the U.S. FDA and insurance companies, and streamline patient and practice management. The software also aggregates de-identified real-world data to accelerate research and development of new mental health treatments and diagnostics such as psychedelic medicines, neuromodulation, digital therapeutics, digital phenotyping, and neuroimaging.
