BEAM: Setting the Standard for Proactive Behavioral Healthcare

Healthcare providers are expected to treat more behavioral health needs than ever before. This creates a healthcare industry centered around reactive measures that are costly to patient health and healthcare systems. BEAM Diagnostics, Inc. developed Beacon, a digital assessment platform that simplifies assessment delivery. Beacon equips providers with accessible, predictive technology that improves the proactive quality of care for patients. Dr. Sarah Snider, BEAM Co-Founder and CEO, will discuss the difficulty of addressing behavioral health needs, how BEAM is setting the standard for proactive assessments, and what that means for the future of healthcare.
