Our mission is to develop and market advanced behavioral health research tools (both products and services) in order to improve research and clinical practices and improve the lives of people affected by behavioral health issues.
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 and NIDA, 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.
Since then, 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. TeleSage has become a world leader in behavioral health outcomes tracking technologies.
TeleSage has administered over 100,000,000 client centered surveys.
TeleSage surveys have been administered in: English, Spanish, Mandarin, Cantonese, French, Russian, Tagalog, Danish, Swedish, and Hebrew.
TeleSage surveys have been administered on all continents except Antarctica.
TeleSage is the maker of the only digital version of the SCID-5.
TeleSage is the maker of the only self-report electronic psychosis screener.
TeleSage partners include scores of top research universities and Fortune 500 Companies.
TeleSage has supported over 20 clinical trials in the last year alone.
TeleSage has received over $8,000,000 in NIMH and NIDA grants to develop diagnostic and measurement-based care technologies.
TeleSage has run state & county outcomes tracking systems in Washington, California, Ohio, Iowa, Pennsylvania, Louisiana, and Tennessee.
TeleSage houses its own in-house industrial strength PORTAL with a flexible choice of instrumentation.
