Vocal Biomarkers for Behavioral Health Management
At Ensofy we help healthcare providers easily manage the behavioral health of their patients and members.
Our API-first solution provides instant mental health assessment of your patients/members and live insights for the caretakers - using only the human voice.
Behavioral health disorders are costly for the providers
Behavioral health disorders, such as major depressive disorder are a colossal public health challenge. They are known to worsen symptoms of existing chronic conditions, leading to functional decline, disability, and loss of quality of life. Behavioral health comorbidities lead to excessive treatment costs to the providers and payers.
Currently used screening and managing tools for behavioral health disorders do not address the existing needs. At Ensofy we are building novel vocal biomarkers technology that aims to replace these outdated tools in practice and allow more patient- and caretaker-friendly approach to behavioral health management.
Mental health disorders are under-diagnosed and under-treated. In the US, up to 60% of those affected never receive any care.
Existing screening tools for mental health are largely limited.
As a result, only 1 in 5 primary care physicians records the mental health of their patients.
6x Excess Costs
Mental health comorbidities lead to lengthy hospitalizations, unnecessary complications and excessive healthcare costs to the providers and payers.
Human Voice is a Window into the Human Mind.
As early as 1927, clinical psychiatrists noted the distinct vocal pattern that depressed patients have. Today we know that individuals experiencing behavioral health disorders undergo specific neurophysiological and cognitive changes that directly affects human vocal output.
At Ensofy, we are building an AI solution that identifies these changes in the voice, commonly called vocal biomarkers. Our solution, called VoiceAI, helps caretakers easily manage the behavioral health of their patients. VoiceAI requires only 30 seconds of free-form speech and unlike the existing tools provides results instantly. VoiceAI can be easily integrated in any existing virtual care platform currently used by providers, payers and digital health startups.
