In this case study we will discuss how Kognito collaborated with the New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene to build a simulation to train the City’s 7,000 primary care providers (PCP) to (1) identify patients who are manifesting signs of PTSD, depression, substance/alcohol abuse, and suicidal ideation and (2) build intrinsic motivation within these patients to increase adherence to treatment plans that integrate behavioral health components. This CME approved simulation was developed to enhance the City’s preparedness to deal with possible surges of patients presenting with mental health symptoms following traumatic events such as terrorist attacks and hurricanes.

The presentation will include a demo of the simulation, discussion on the collaboration and development process, and initial results from a study that examined efficacy.
