Brigham and Women’s Hospital has tapped mental health startup Rose to help support clinicians’ mental health during the COVID-19 pandemic. During the pilot program, emergency health care professionals at Brigham and Women’s Hospital will receive access to the Rose platform, which monitors their levels of well-being and detects changes in real time.
The platform collects data from users in the form of questionnaires and free-response journal entries, which can be completed in as few as 30 seconds, according to the company. Rose uses those data to track mental health, monitor stress levels, identify triggers and get ahead of more extreme events. Rose, which has its roots at Johns Hopkins University, developed a HIPAA-compliant mental health monitoring platform and mobile app platform that is powered by patented artificial intelligence and natural language processing technology, according to the company.
The use of AI enables the platform to identify key indicators and warning markers for the presence or advancement of mental health symptoms in a user’s responses to questions and prompts. The startup also provides each user with a personalized feed of curated content from its library of more than 1,000 articles and videos based on the user’s history, behavior and app inputs.
Brigham and Women’s Hospital is an academic medical center based in Boston, Massachusetts. The Brigham serves individual from New England, across the United States, and from 120 countries around the world and is a major teaching hospital of Harvard Medical School.
Rose was founded under the belief that mental well-being requires individual and provider organizations to be able to communicate and understand each other in a continually adaptive manner. Rose is actively developing an ecosystem to make this possible, with the ultimate goal of making safe and reliable mental health care accessible to all.
