Mental Health HRAs

According to the National Institute of Mental Health, mental illnesses affect tens of millions of people in the United States each year. It is estimated that only approximately half of the people affected by mental health issues receive treatment.

The chance of developing a mental health disorder can be reduced by taking steps to prevent and control factors that put people at greater risk. HealthAware’s Mental Health Risk Assessments allow users to assess their current health status and identify risk factors that may lead to the development of mental health illness. Participants are then provided the resources needed to take action to seek assistance and/or reduce their level of risk.

Our Mental Health Risk Assessment Program includes:

AnxietyAware is designed to help participants understand their risks for having or developing an anxiety disorder by answering questions relating to their feelings, actions and emotional responses or statuses in certain situations. Participants are scored on a scale ranging from no anxiety to extremely severe anxiety.

Anxiety disorders affect about 40 million American adults aged 18 years and older (about 18%) in a given year, causing them to be filled with fearfulness and uncertainty. Unlike the relatively mild, brief anxiety caused by a stressful event (such as speaking in public or a first date), anxiety disorders last at least 6 months and can get worse if they are not treated.

The chance of developing an anxiety disorder can be reduced by taking steps to prevent and control factors that put people at greater risk.

AddictionAware is designed to help participants to identify if they have a problem relating to addiction by answering questions relating to alcohol and drug use.

Some habits and actions may be pleasurable but over time may become compulsive and interfere with ordinary life responsibilities such as work, relationships, or maintaining good health. Users may not be aware that their behavior is out of control and causing problems for themselves and others. Taking a risk assessment is a good first step to understanding whether you have a problem.

DepressionAware is designed to evaluate each participant’s risk for having or developing depression. The risk assessment includes questions focusing on how often and significantly a person is bothered by various problems, situations, and mental states.

Patient Consent to Communication of Personal Health Information (PHI) through Standard SMS/Text Message and/or Email

Welcome! Your healthcare provider has partnered with HealthAware to help guide you through your care plan.

Who is HealthAware?
HealthAware provides health support programs (HSPs) delivered via standard SMS/text message and/or email. Your HSP is under the direction of your healthcare provider and is designed to support you in your health journey by providing education information related to:

  • Your health support program
  • Behavioral prompts/check-ins
  • Assessments/progress reports
  • Appointment reminders
  • Other health related messages or programs pertaining to my health support program

These HealthAware programs are for educational purposes only. They cannot provide, and are not intended as a substitute for medical care. The programs are automated, and therefore not actively monitored. In the event that medical care is needed, please call your healthcare provider or 911.

Why do I need to accept this patient consent?
HealthAware uses standard SMS/text messages and email messages that are not encrypted to communicate information with you about your HSP. Consequently, there is a risk that an unauthorized third party could view the information being transmitted.

To whom does HealthAware disclose my PHI (Personal Health Information)?
HealthAware only discloses PHI to you and your healthcare provider. HealthAware does not disclose PHI to any other party, such as marketing or sales organizations.

Consent
By clicking “accept” on a web page, clicking a link that is clearly labeled as a means of indicating consent, or replying “yes” to my consent prompt via text message, I agree to the following:

I hereby consent and state my preference for HealthAware to communicate with me via SMS/text message and/or email regarding various aspects of my health support program (HSP), which may include my PHI, behavioral prompts/check-ins, assessments and progress reports, appointment reminders, and other health related messages or programs pertaining to my health support program.

I understand that standard SMS/text messaging and email are not confidential methods of communication and may be insecure. I further understand that, because of this, there is a risk that standard SMS/text messaging and email regarding my medical care might be intercepted and read by a third party.

I may revoke this consent in writing except to the extent that HealthAware and/or my healthcare provider has already made disclosures in reliance upon my prior consent. If I do not accept this consent, or if I later revoke it, the commencement, continuation, or quality of my treatment will not be affected, but my enrollment with the HSP delivered by HealthAware will be terminated.
