Who we are

We are a digital health company led by a nationally recognized team of experts in behavioral medicine, software engineering, digital health technologies, health insurance, and behavioral health clinical research. Our research and findings have been published in more than 40 peer-reviewed journals and other scientific publications.

Our History

Tridiuum is built on a strong clinical foundation, having begun in the late 90s as a research “think tank” focused on developing technology to support behavioral health providers in the practice of feedback-informed treatment.

NIH Funding

Since its founding, the company has been awarded some $17 million in National Institutes of Health funding in partnership with preeminent universities and hospital systems.

By 2001, the company had developed a desktop application for its behavioral health assessment and tracking tool and, by 2015, after years of behavioral health clinical research across acute and chronic diseases, the company, then called Polaris Health Directions, had progressed to a cloud-based-platform architecture, delivering a digital experience for behavioral health patients.

The company then decided to seek private funding and offer its technology platform as software-as-a-service (SaaS).

In 2017, the company was renamed Tridiuum, reflecting its tri-focus on better patient outcomes, faster results and lower costs, for patients, providers and health systems, across the continuum of care.

Supporting the integration of behavioral health into total health

Improved Patient Experience

Through a web-based assessment process (intake/updates), Tridiuum’s solution supports earlier identification of and intervention with behavioral health issues. This, in turn, can lead to better patient outcomes, shortened courses of treatment, and improvement in comorbidities.

Tridiuum Quadruple Aim

Better Patient Outcomes

With its proprietary Behavioral Health Index (BHI) score and Expected Treatment Response (ETR) curve, Tridiuum supports feedback informed treatment (FIT). FIT is widely cited as: increasing clinically significant change; decreasing deterioration and therapy drop-out rates; reducing hospitalizations and shortening lengths of stay; and reducing total cost of care.

The plotting of a patient’s current BHI score against an individualized ETR curve enables clinicians to track patient progress and data from assessments can support coordinated care among providers. An important benefit of assessment results is the monitoring of therapeutic alliance — a vital indicator of successful behavioral health treatment.

Enhanced Provider Experience

Whether a provider is a behavioral health or other specialist, or a primary-care clinician, she or he faces myriad challenges that can tax time and expertise. With Tridiuum’s solution, the provider experience improves from the moment the first patient takes an intake assessment, with results, including critical alerts, appearing in real time on a dashboard. These data, synergistic with clinical judgment, allow the provider to identify a patient’s true issue/s more quickly, cutting down on the time needed to move the patient into an appropriate treatment path.

Saving time up front means providers have more time for more patients and more revenue. Update assessments at subsequent visits further support providers as they track patient treatment and consider adjustments in care. Additionally, providers and health systems can easily access advanced analytics to evaluate practice performance and modify approaches for greater success.

Reduced Costs

The 2018 Milliman “Potential Economic Impact of Integrated Healthcare” report states, “Integrated care can lead to reductions in total healthcare costs . . . typical cost savings estimates range from 5 to 10 percent, over a period of 2-4 years for patients receiving collaborative care.” Health systems can reap the benefits of the collaborative care model with Tridiuum’s proprietary solution, which helps accelerate positive patient outcomes at lower cost, especially for those in need of chronic care management. Using unique dashboards on the Tridiuum platform, health systems management or other administrators can monitor performance through filterable data analytics that can help better manage resources, programs, and services for population health.

To illustrate the potential impact of behavioral health integration:

A non-Tridiuum-related study in Alaska cited the following significant outcomes of integrating behavioral health into a medical setting: a 50% drop in urgent care and ER utilization; a 53% drop in hospital admissions; a 65% drop in specialist utilization; and a 20% drop in primary care utilization per patient.
