BETHESDA, Md., March 9 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) --, the evidenced-based behavioral health portal, allows patients to take the screen using the Apple iPad; provides the clinician immediate clinical decision support at the point of care.

" is the first behavioral health site of its kind. It offers a single evidence-based, multi-dimensional screen; decision support for clinicians, and longitudinal monitoring for continuing care," explains Robert M. Post, M.D., a recipient of the NAMI 2011 Mind of America Scientific Research Award and member of the M-3 Collaborative. This option is very meaningful to everyone but especially military and student populations that benefit from early intervention.

Says Larry Culpepper, Chair of Family Medicine at Boston University: "'s clinical decision support really facilitates a meaningful doctor-patient dialogue at the point of care. Not only does it improve the quality of care, it improves the care experience for patients and providers. Because it is brief and easy to use we can now readily screen all of our primary care patients. In turn, this should foster among our patients the feeling that for nearly any life problem they bring us, they have come to the right place. M3 Clinician should help advance The Medical Home care model."

M3 Clinician's single multi-dimensional checklist was demonstrated to match the combined accuracy of four highly-regarded single-diagnosis mental health screens, according to a recent validation study by researchers at the University of North Carolina. (Published in the Annals of Family Medicine.) "M3 can reduce missed psychiatric diagnoses enabling proper treatment of identified cases," writes lead author Bradley N. Gaynes, MD, MPH, a growing problem in U.S. healthcare.

M3Clinician was engineered to integrate and interoperate with Practice Management, EMR, and HIS systems as well as HIEs and PHRs. There is no software to install, no server to maintain, and no infrastructure to worry about. Providers can access M3Clinician at or from their EMR/PM/HIS/HIE system(s).

Clinicians appreciate that M3Clinician may qualify for reimbursement as a Health Risk Assessment (CPT code 99420), HCPCS and Medicare Annual Wellness Visit. Moreover, M3Clinician promotes immediate, paperless care collaboration among providers, consultants, and other care team member. M3Clinician is taking aim at primary care; the medical point of contact for the vast majority of the population.

About the M-3 Checklist: Since the publication of the validation article in March, 2010 the M-3 Checklist has been taken by people in over 120 countries and in all 50 states.

The M-3 Checklist was developed by M-3 Information, a team of mental health, strategic communications, and information management experts, including Robert M. Post, MD and Larry Culpepper, MD, Chairman of the Department of Family Medicine at Boston University.
