CHICAGO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Blueprint, a technology company whose software allows mental health clinicians to efficiently practice measurement-based care, today announced a $1.3 million round of funding led by Lightbank and Hyde Park Angels. This capital will enable the company to expand its clinician outreach and grow its engineering and sales teams.
Blueprint’s platform collects and analyzes patient data to empower clinicians to more efficiently deliver measurement-based care — the practice of incorporating data to drive clinical decision-making. The Blueprint mobile app prompts patients to complete standardized assessments between appointments and combines these results with their exercise, sleep, and movement patterns, which are captured through smartphone sensors. Without Blueprint, it is time-consuming and logistically difficult for clinicians to collect such measurements. By removing these barriers and enabling clinicians to automate the data-collection process, Blueprint aims to improve long-term health for patients suffering from depression, anxiety, post-traumatic stress disorder, bipolar disorder, and several other mental health conditions.
“We believe that getting the right data to clinicians at the right time can save lives,” said Danny Freed, CEO and Founder of Blueprint. “Today’s technology — for the first time in history — makes it possible to implement measurement-based care at scale. At Blueprint, we’re harnessing this technology to help clinicians make smarter treatment decisions for and with their patients.”
Vic Pascucci III, managing partner of Lightbank, and Blueprint investor and board member, commented, “The Blueprint team has built something truly amazing, and we are extremely excited to partner with them. With the benefits that measurement-based care can provide, we see a bright future ahead not only for the patients using the app, but for Blueprint as well.”
Using Blueprint not only helps clinicians improve patient outcomes, but also drives additional reimbursement revenue for clinics. To make the benefits of measurement-based care more widely accessible, Blueprint bills insurance on behalf of clinicians for each completed assessment.
