Imagine a world where preventative healthcare interventions happen at just the right time, where signs of distress are objectively measured and support systems can be notified and put to work, all before people face a crisis...
"In the future, we expect that the most prominent... [advancements] in healthcare will be specifically in preventative care" (Copper, 2021, PharmaTimes).
Preventative healthcare solutions are the most effective means of improving the quality of life because they keep problems from spiraling down – or better yet, from developing in the first place.
To that effect, preventative mental healthcare is one of the most pressing and under-served areas, as mental health disorders are on the rise throughout the world.
The World Health Organization has said that,
"Depression is one of the leading causes of disability. Suicide is the fourth leading cause of death among 15-29-year-olds. People with severe mental health conditions die prematurely – as much as two decades early – due to preventable physical conditions" - (WHO).
They also note the potential for improvement.
"Effective treatment coverage remains extremely low... [so] increased investment is required on all fronts: for mental health awareness to increase understanding and reduce stigma; for efforts to increase access to quality mental health care and effective treatments; and for research to identify new treatments and improve existing treatments for all mental disorders" - (WHO).
Fortunately, the future of mental healthcare has arrived with Wondr.cx, and it's thanks to the data gathered via wearable technologies. These tiny gadgets are revolutionizing healthcare with their ability to collect data on wearers' vital signs and now – due to Wondr's technology – mental health.
How? You might ask.
Wondr continuously and passively measures neurologic data which can predict periods of mental distress with 98% accuracy – and Wondr reports this data in real-time.
Wondr's data alerts are then used to access resiliency resources before users have a crisis. These automatic alerts give individuals time to use preventative mental health solutions, substantially improve treatment outcomes, and – by avoiding the crisis – provide savings to patients, health insurers and hospitals.
Thanks to the advancements made in the wearable technology space, and decades of peer-reviewed academic and applied research, an emotionally healthier world is within reach – and Wondr is shaping that brighter future.
