Patients use OPTIONS to answer a series of questions on a tablet prior to appointments, which saves care providers precious time.
Research shows that today’s adolescents and young adults are more tech-savvy – and more importantly, tech-friendly – than any previous generation. We developed OPTIONS and MyPLAN as a comfortable way for this age group to share vital information on high-risk sexual behavior that could be life-changing.
OPTIONS and MyPLAN are private, user-friendly, and quick-response apps for Android and iOS platforms that gather vital behavioral health information.
Responding honestly to questions is more comfortable for young people because there’s no parent in the room – and it saves providers from having to ask potentially embarrassing questions.
OPTIONS and MyPLAN provide an innovative starting point for a more effective prevention plan by using technology to address an underserved population that is at risk. The OPTIONS framework includes abstinence and risk reduction techniques which can be tailored to individual patients and their corresponding levels of risk.
What’s more, OPTIONS and MyPLAN are designed to satisfy new Medicaid healthcare guidelines and can pay for themselves after a handful of assessments.
