The term behavioral health implies the context of emotional, phycological, and physical well-being. Science and research tell that many patients suffering from unseen emotional and psychological challenges are also likely to suffer from other physical ailments.

According to World Health Organization (WHO), mental, neurological, and substance use disorders make up 10% of the global burden of disease and 30% of non-fatal disease. Depression is one of the leading causes of disability, affecting 264 million people. About half of the mental disorders begin before the age of 14. (Source: WHO)

The behavioral health market is growing due to the rising social awareness amongst the public. Many Non-government organizations and nonprofits are helping to create awareness across the world. Unlike large medical practices or hospitals, most small-scale mental healthcare professionals have limited capital to invest in technological solutions. In addition, due to the small scale of their businesses, these professionals are unable to qualify for incentives for meaningful use of EHRs.

The ability to support Behavioral Health services as virtual care is a must-have for all healthcare delivery organizations.

According to Gartner, between 1 January and 31 August 2020, Gartner experienced more than a 300% increase in virtual care inquiry volume compared to the same period in 2019. (Source : Gartner)
