It’s time for therapists to use data, like doctors do

The Mental Health Pandemic: Should Therapists Be Using Data?

Does data matter when it comes to therapy? Mental health startup Eleos Health, which provides a Care Intelligence Solution for clinicians, would say that data is a driving force in improving patient care. So the question is, should therapists leverage data in patient care the way doctors do or continue to base their care on traditional training?

Please join @Dr. Simon Rego for a Facebook Live Event with @Eleos Chief Clinical Officer @Shiri Sadeh-Sharvit and Former Wall Street Journal Tech Editor @Amir Mizroch as they unpack how therapy is transforming and what role data should play in patient care.

Date: Friday, November 13th

Time: 10:30 - 11:00 AM EST
