Mynd Analytics Cloud-based Registry (PEER) to improve Mental Health Treatment
Los Angeles, Calif., May 1, 2017. MYnd Analytics (MYAN:OTCQB) has developed the Psychiatric EEG Evaluation Registry, or PEER Online®, a cloud-based platform, which allows physicians to exchange outcome data referenced to their patients’ neurophysiology. It provides a vital exchange of information between medical professionals treating patients with mental health issues, to soon be able to significantly impact and improve treatment, while lowering climbing suicide rates, especially among Veterans.
Michael Mantenuto, an actor and hockey player who starred in Disney’s 2004 film “Miracle,” has died of an apparent suicide. He was 35 and after his acting career had joined the military. TMZ reports that the actor died by shooting. In a news release announcing Mantenuto’s death, Col. Guillaume “Will” Beaurpere, the commander for Mantenuto’s 1st Special Forces Group (Airborne), shared the news of his death on Facebook writing, “Those of you that knew Mike will remember him for his passionate love for his family and his commitment to the health of the force”.
Unfortunately, Mantenuto’s suicide is not uncommon. In July, a statement was made by The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) after a comprehensive analysis of 55 million Veteran records between 1979 to 2014 from every state in the nation, estimating the number of Veteran deaths by suicide averaged 22 per day. The now Secretary of the Veterans Affairs Dr. David J. Shulkin stated “One Veteran suicide is one too many …. comprehensive data that allows us to make better informed decisions on how to prevent this national tragedy. We as a nation must focus on bringing the number of Veteran suicides to zero.”
Companies are working on tools to assist doctors to get patients suffering from depression on the right medication utilizing Mynd Analytics’ PEER system, a unique set of reference data and analytic tools. The latest clinical results showed patients of physicians that utilized the PEER recommendations, to make treatment decisions had a 144% improvement in depression scores and a 75% greater reduction in suicidality. Treatments which followed PEER recommendations resulted in 2.5 time’s greater adherence to therapy.
