Virtua Health has partnered with Woebot Health to introduce Woebot for Adults as a supplementary mental health tool for patients.

This collaboration aims to offer support to individuals waiting for behavioural health services or seeking alternatives to traditional in-person therapy.

Virtua Health will also develop a shared resource centre with Woebot Health to provide training, deployment, and reporting resources for implementing Woebot for Adults.

The alliance will assess the impact of digital therapeutics on patient outcomes, healthcare resource utilisation, and health economics.

Virtua Health senior vice president and chief digital transformation officer Tarun Kapoor said: “Our recent community needs assessment showed behavioural health access continues to be a top priority in our area, but that affordability, trust and practical considerations are roadblocks to getting help.

“Woebot is the innovative tool that has the potential to address many of the problems that our providers and our community are facing.”

The partnership is commencing prior to the usually hectic holiday season, with plans for future expansion.

Woebot Health CEO Michael Evers said: “We’ve seen increasing interest from health systems who want to augment care and support patients with 24/7 mental health support.

“But Virtua Health is unique in its holistic approach to breaking through access obstacles with a complete implementation program that will get tools into the hands of people who need them most.

“We’re very excited to see how this approach can benefit patients, clinicians and the health system as a whole.”
