Federally Qualified Health Centers
Provide whole-person care with integrated behavioral health.
Federally qualified health centers (FQHCs) know how important it is to treat the whole person – body and mind. Proem Behavioral Health helps by integrating behavioral health into clinical workflow so providers can screen, assess and measure mental health outcomes regardless of where care takes place within the organization.
A Single Easy-to-use Platform That Provides Documentation for Optimal Reimbursement
Identify the most commonly diagnosed DSM-5 adult and pediatric mental disorders in under five minutes with a single evidence-based screener.
Use diagnostic interviews and clinical follow-up suggestions to further evaluate and direct patients to the appropriate level of care.
Measure outcomes with symptom monitors, functional impairment scales and therapeutic alliance to support measurement-based care.
Built for the Needs of FQHCs
By their nature, federally qualified health centers care for patient populations that have a high incidence of behavioral health issues due to their social determinants of health (SDOH) conditions. Proem provides a step-by-step process to help FQHCs quickly and efficiently assess, diagnose and treat patients’ behavioral health conditions so they can live healthier lives.
Meet Patients Where They Are
Because the licensed digital screening and assessment tools on Proem’s platform are electronic, FQHCs can email or text them to patients to complete at their convenience on their phones or any other device connected to the Internet. FQHCs also can incorporate mental health screening into mobile health units, easily integrating behavioral health into existing programs.
Provide Documentation Required for Reimbursement
The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) provides additional reimbursement for providing behavioral health integration (BHI) services. However, to qualify FQHCs must be able to show documented behavioral health treatment plans, which often are lacking in enterprise electronic health records (EHRs). Proem includes treatment plans and informed consent capabilities to meet this reimbursement requirement.
Use the Best Tools
Proem’s exclusively licensed digital tools are evidence-based and trusted by clinical and academic researchers worldwide for over 20 years. They include the Mini International Neuropsychiatric Interview (M.I.N.I.), M.I.N.I. Kid, Sheehan Disability Scale (SDS), Yale-Brown Obsessive Compulsive Scale (Y-BOCS), Children’s Yale-Brown Obsessive Compulsive Scale (CY-BOCS), and more.
Proem also includes several tools on its platform to assess the unique needs of FQHC patient populations, including:
Functional Assessment Rating Scale (FARS)
Bio-Psychosocial assessment (BPS)
Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs)
Health-Related Social Needs Screening tool (HRSN)
Pediatric ACEs and Related Life Events Screener (PEARLS)
Integrate with Your EHR
Proem offers EHR integration to streamline workflow. Single sign-on capabilities enable providers to sign into their EHR and access Proem without logging in separately. Electronic signature capabilities allow Proem to facilitate intake packets, including HIPAA forms, to lessen the burden for new patient onboarding. And full integration with EHRs like athenahealth and Lightning Step embed Proem into the EHR to automate assessments, share patient results and reports, and keep patient lists coordinated.
How It Works
A Flexible Platform to Support the Mental Health Wellness Journey
How We're Different
Making Mental Health Care Seamless
FQHCs are uniquely positioned to integrate behavioral health into physical health care, often having adult and pediatric primary care, OB-GYN, and psychiatric care services all under the same roof. You just need the right solution to facilitate the process.
Screening, assessing and measuring outcomes for behavioral health conditions is fast, accurate and seamless with Proem.
Evidence-based measurements and scales fit within the FQHC’s existing clinical workflows.
Multi-dimensional screeners and assessments go beyond depression and anxiety to assess multiple conditions often seen by FQHCs, including PTSD, ADHD, SUD (substance use disorder), panic disorders and more.
Symptom and severity measurement tools help FQHCs follow patients and adjust therapies that are not working or continue those that are helping improve patients’ lives.
Treatment plans provide the documentation needed to support federal and state reimbursement requirements.
Patient and management dashboards track and trend data over time to demonstrate verifiable patient outcomes.
What People Say About Us
At PMC, we are always working to identify the most effective ways to deliver optimal outcomes to our patients. Through our partnership with Proem, we gain access to a powerful platform that will help strengthen the services we provide to program participants and better ensure the success of our new initiatives.
When it comes to evaluating individuals with complex conditions, it is important that we use evidenced-based resources such as Proem’s licensed digital diagnostic interview to accurately and precisely diagnose the specific condition or conditions that are driving the behaviors or presenting concerns. The specificity of the questions and the intuitive algorithms make it ideal for the type of work we do.
One of our primary goals at IQVIA is to incorporate the very best behavioral health technologies into our digital eCOA solutions to better serve our large base of customers. We are pleased to be working with Proem. Their depth and breadth of products and knowledge in the field of behavioral health is extremely impressive and much needed.
Proem has become a gold standard in my practice because it helps achieve a greater degree of patient disclosure and has a high level of specificity and sensitivity in evaluating psychiatric disorders. It helps in several vital ways: by encouraging patient disclosure, identifying if multiple disorders are an issue and providing additional perspectives that can enhance the quality of outcomes.
One mission. Two ways.
At Proem Behavioral Health, our mission is to ease the pain of mental illness by helping healthcare providers and clinical researchers help more people. We do that in two ways: through our comprehensive software platform and our exclusively licensed digital mental health assessments.
