Behavioral Healthcare, Anywhere

bhworks is a software platform that can be accessed from any web-enabled device, providing organizations with the tools they need to deliver behavioral health services anywhere people live, work, study, or receive care.  With easy to use features that streamline screening, care coordination, and outcomes reporting, bhworks has been leveraged to address behavioral health issues in a range of settings – from hospitals, primary care facilities, and local health departments to schools, community organizations, and workplaces.

Screen Whole Populations Using Minimal Resources

Free up staff time by leveraging assessments that can be self-reported on a laptop, tablet, or mobile phone. Results are immediately scored, summarized, and securely sent to a designated clinician for review. Add measures in your current workflow and/or use our validated assessment which screens across 16 domains of mental health and psychosocial risk. bhworks also gives you access to a range of forms and assessments based on your market, including the PHQ-9 (depression), GAD-7 (anxiety), AUDIT-C (alcohol misuse), and C-SSRS (suicide risk). bhworks also offers M-CHAT™, a 2-stage parent-report screening tool to assess risk in toddlers for Autism Spectrum Disorders. 

Provide Wrap-Around Support

Connect patients or clients to healthcare and social support resources with a searchable referral directory configured for your population’s needs. Staff can refer people to services directly in bhworks, searching for providers based on services offered, location, and availability. Care coordination tools identify tasks that need to be completed for each individual, alerting clinicians and care managers when a task is past due.

Communicate via Virtual Visits

Staff users can easily initiate virtual visits through bhworks, sending a link to the participant via text or email. The module is browser-based and does not require users to download additional software to host or join a telehealth session. During the session, care providers can take notes, obtain consent, perform screenings, or share educational materials with the participant. Once the meeting has concluded, authorized staff users can access an audit of the virtual visit, including who participated, the duration of the consult, and provider notes. 

Understand What's Driving Outcomes

bhworks is equipped with dashboards that can aggregate data across multiple sites, helping your organization view program outcomes in real-time. In addition to identifying factors that contribute to suicidality and other behavioral health problems, bhworks has been used to address health disparities in underserved communities, forecast costs for value-based care organizations, and report program outcomes to public and private funders.

Connect Care Across Traditional Boundaries

bhworks can integrate with any system that can send or receive data in the HL7 FHIR format and can also handle custom formats. Various clients access bhworks via single sign-on within their own IT systems. Perfect for securely sharing data, including referrals.

EMR/EHR/SIS Integration/Interface

The bhworks platform includes standard APIs that integrate/interface with other Electronic Record Systems (ERS, Electronic Medical Records, Electronic Health Record, Student Information System, Health Information Exchanges, etc.) as well as with billing systems.

This allows clinical providers to directly access bhworks from other ERS using mdlogix single sign-on (SSO) standards (SAML, JWT, or Smart on FHIR). Standard mdlogix APIs are used to send demographic information (name, date of birth, etc.) from the ERS to bhworks so staff do not have to enter this information into bhworks.

Further, data collected within bhworks can also be sent back to the ERS further streamlining the data collection and reporting process for staff. 

Provenance and Validation

bhworks has been studied by prominent leaders in the fields of psychology, psychiatry, and pediatrics.

The American Board of Pediatrics approves bhworks as a Maintenance of Certification (MOC) Part 4 for Quality Improvement for Patient Care.
