This revolutionary digital therapeutic provides daily symptom monitoring, making the process of recovery faster and easier

Watch this video for an introduction to CareLoop:

Psychosis affects around 79 million people worldwide. As a response to this growing, global issue, healthcare providers are seeking to improve mental healthcare by responding to individual needs and mitigating adverse events.

In today’s world, care is moving to community settings with extremely limited resources.  That is why professionals are actively seeking new technologies that will address these clinical, financial and increasing population challenges.

CareLoop is providing that solution with their three-prong focus: Process, Product, and People. CareLoop is the first product in the world to develop the process of building, validating and testing a platform for smartphone apps in mental health.
