Multidimensional Behavioral Health Screening
M3 Clinician empowers primary care clinicians with a risk screen that detects behavioral
health conditions such as depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, PTSD, and alcohol
and substance abuse. Consisting of 27 questions, the evidence-based web and mobile
screening assessment can be easily completed during annual checkups, in the waiting
room or remotely in just three to five minutes. Once the assessment is completed,
M3 Clinician algorithmically computes and assigns a numeric value, the M3 total
score, which can be viewed in real time and used to provide clinical support at
the point of care. The results place the patient on the clinical map enabling clinicians
to make a more accurate diagnosis while providing insight on what the best medical
pathway to an improved outcome may be.
Clinical Decision Support at the Point of Care
M3 Clinician provides an individualized patient assessment geared toward early detection,co-morbid
illness, and identifying people in distress irrespective of their particular diagnosis.
Meanwhile, its dimensional subscores help to place patients on a clinical map, leading
the clinician toward the appropriate diagnosis. M3 Clinician facilitates longitudinal
monitoring and communication among the care team members in a medical home environment.
M3 Clinician was clinically validated in a research study performed at the University
of North Carolina, and published in the Annals of Family Medicine. Mood and anxiety
disorders are the most common psychiatric conditions seen in primary care, yet they
remain underdetected and undertreated. The M3 Clinician checklist, a patient-rated,
single 27-item tool was shown to effectively screen for multiple psychiatric disorders
in primary care. (Study Link to: https://m3clinician.com/Documents/AFM_Final_3.8.10.pdf)
