How We Got Started

In response to the growing need for behavioral health outcomes tracking, TeleSage was founded in 1996 for the purpose of gathering patient-centered outcomes tracking data for mental health clinical and research institutions. (This field was the precursor to what is now known as ‘Measurement Based Care’ which facilitates ‘Value Based Reimbursement.’)

With R&D funding from NIMH, NIDA, and CDC, TeleSage, Inc. pioneered the development and use of research tools for tracking patient-reported outcomes, including diagnostic assessment, treatment evaluation, and reporting to regulatory agencies.

Now and Where We’re Headed

TeleSage has developed and hosted behavioral health-related research software systems using IVR and Web-based technologies. TeleSage has also developed and validated several important instruments using state-of-the-art mathematical techniques including Item Response Theory (IRT) and Support Vector Machine (SVM) Learning.

Our current available assessments include the NetSCID, the SAGE-SR, and the NetDISC-5. TeleSage has become a world leader in behavioral health outcomes tracking technologies. We are continuing to develop new assessments including a personality disorder version of the SAGE-SR.
