We are excited to announce that cliexa has been named Telehealth Startup of the Month by the Telehealth Networking Club.

After pitching our product to an esteemed panel of judges that included members of the Global Health Impact Fund, Munich Re Ventures, and bene : studio, we were chosen as a winner.

The cliexa team was recognized for its work to promote our Remote Patient Monitoring (RPM) and Telehealth services to healthcare systems, starting here in Colorado. Our products provide a platform for healthcare providers to securely interact with their patients. It allows them to onboard and monitor patient’s treatment progress remotely to ensure continuity of care when in-person care is difficult.

Our innovative healthcare technology impacts more than healthcare professionals. As healthcare in America continues to evolve, digital health technologies continue to emerge as beneficial tools for patients and providers. Our solutions aim to address the full stack of virtual health technology, from intake to follow up.

Adolescent Resiliency and Wellness Digital Tools

With our recent strides in artificial intelligence, we’d like to get back to the roots of our core solutions. Over the past few months. As care shifts to digital, cliexa continues to put both patient and physician experience at top of mind. Read on to learn more about the opportunities to explore one of our flagship solutions, cliexa-OPTIONS, centered around adolescent engagement during one of the most critical moments in their healthcare journey.

Our cliexa-OPTIONS solution assesses adolescent risk and resiliency to provide pediatric, primary, and family care practitioners a thorough view of their patient’s health. The modular application structure of cliexa-OPTIONS supports implementation across a wide variety of care settings. As one of our clinicians through the University of Northern Colorado shared, “when clients have the option to disclose information through a virtual platform this informs the counselor of various topics the client may feel uncomfortable bringing up in session.” We have seen great success in both family medicine practices and primary care locations while venturing into non-clinical settings that have an immediate impact on adolescents.

Adolescent resiliency and wellness are often overlooked, simply because it is difficult to measure and monitor.1 There are multiple positive and negative factors that impact an individual’s mental health, and practitioners lack a standardized model to assess patients properly. Our proprietary model factors in a range of 22 measures to identify 6 dimensions of resiliency, providing physicians a comprehensive understanding of their patient’s wellbeing.

With students returning to school, either virtually or in-person, the mental health struggles of this generation must be acknowledged on a broad scale. While some students have access to mental health care, the large majority of those affected will go unnoticed. There is a growing need for a tool that adolescents interact with digitally, in an intuitive manner. This is where we see cliexa-OPTIONS as a tool that empowers adolescent patients and clinicians alike, in addressing risk and resiliency.

Check out today’s update on our $1 Million Grant to study digital screening intervention tools for adolescents and young adults with the University of Northern Colorado. Stay tuned for an upcoming blog and new webinar for Adolescent Resiliency and Wellness!

CANLab Publication

Our partners at the University of Colorado Boulder’s Cognitive and Affective Neuroscience Lab (CANLab) feature our collaboration with their most recent publication.

The Publication

Featured in Neurotherapeutics, the CANLab researchers explore the application of machine learning to chronic pain assessments, leveraging emotional body maps powered by the cliexa platform. With emotional and behavioral health as cornerstones of their chronic pain research, the study explores the emotional processing associated with body sensations. Remote patient outcomes reporting for the study was built into our integrated pain management platform, cliexa-EASE.

The study consisted of sixty-five chronic back pain patients, of whom reported their pain intensity and its’ location on an interactive body map. This focus on patient-reported data aligns with cliexa’s vision of placing the patient at the center of their care journey. With these metrics, the team leveraged two separate machine learning models to predict future pain levels two weeks in advance.

The CANLab’s Initial Findings

The CANLab’s initial findings were deduced as two separate models. One model ignored pain-related features as predictive measures of future pain with the second factoring in existing levels of pain. The contribution of emotions, especially emotional experiences felt by the patients, impacted chronic pain levels considerably. With these findings, they believe these results could contribute to the generation of a novel artificial intelligence model to assist in the diagnosis and treatment approaches to chronic back pain.

Future Collaborations and Research

Our collaboration with the CANLab is one of many ways we strive to innovate in the clinical research space. With artificial intelligence moving into the forefront of modern healthcare, we are continually searching for further areas to drive innovation in the medical field.
