OverSightMD Closes the Gap for Metabolic and Mental Health Treatment Across Healthcare Silos
By: OverSightMD Inc.
Metabolic conditions are often associated with mental illness, and research has shown that people with obesity, diabetes, and other metabolic conditions are much more likely to develop conditions such as depression, anxiety, and bipolar disorder. According to the National Institute of Mental Health, the relationship between mental illness and metabolic health is bi-directional, meaning that each can contribute to the development or exacerbation of the other.
OverSightMD's Connected Therapy Platform already offers mental health monitoring and support, including hourly relapse monitoring, data analysis, and integrated care coordination. With the addition of Metabolic Health Management, the platform now allows for the tracking and managing of metabolic symptoms and risk factors, such as sleep disruption, irregular medication patterns, and continuous glucose levels.
By integrating metabolic and mental health management, the Connected Therapy Platform enables healthcare providers to take a comprehensive approach to patient care. The platform's specialized virtual nurses can now monitor patients' mental and metabolic well-being, allowing for early interventions, treatment reminders, and integrated care coordination.
"Metabolic health is a critical factor in mental well-being, especially for patients with pre-existing metabolic conditions,"
"Our goal is to support multidisciplinary care coordination among addiction specialists, mental health professionals, and primary care physicians. By providing the tools to monitor both mental and metabolic health, we can work together to develop effective treatment plans that address the whole person's needs," said Mr. Godwin.
