What is Kintsugi?

Depression is the leading cause of disability, with 2 out of 5 adults struggling with depression each year in the U.S. Yet, there is still no scalable or universally objective way to identify depression.

Introducing Kintsugi: Kintsugi Voice does not require any specific questions or text and detects signs of depression based on how a patient speaks, not what they say. The result is a scalable, quantifiable and non-invasive tool that accurately screens and stratifies every patient in a telehealth setting for signs and severity of Major Depressive Disorder.

Beam Health and Kintsugi are uniquely positioned to offer a seamless telehealth solution powered by AI that can help clinicians more quickly screen for depression and track impact of treatments. With depression stratification scores produced in under a minute and automatically saved and stored in the Beam platform, we help you spend more time with your patients and less time on administrative work.

Together, we are transforming behavioral health in virtual care

Key Features

Integrated telehealth to expand your reach past physical, and geographical boundaries and tap into a wider patient base across the states you're licensed in. Credentialing partners to help you expand past that into new markets.
Asynchronous Telehealth to increase your efficiency and optimize your time. Billable video chats allow you to store and forward your videos to patients.
One-click EHR Integrations to ensure all your data is in one place and optimized to get reimbursed from insurers.
Reimbursements - Allow us to work with your billing company to streamline prior authorizations and remove the administrative burden. As you expand into new states, we can work with the state governments to meet your preauthorization and claims reimbursement processes. Typically, we see an 88% claim acceptance rate for Medicaid. If there are any denials or errors, we can help your billing company with the right paperwork to file an appeal.
Seamless mental health screenings powered by AI and your voice. Kintsugi Voice can predict signs of depression by analyzing less than 30 seconds of free form speech from a patient in real-time.
Enhance the patient experience by eliminating cumbersome, time consuming and uncomfortable questionnaires from the visit and assisting with early identification and tracking of depression symptoms.
Empower clinicians to more easily identify and track signs of depression in telehealth. AI can help to surface the unspoken, especially in a virtual care setting where it may be more difficult to pick up on subtle signs of distress.
Proven technology. Kintsugi Voice is clinically validated, peer reviewed and operating with 20+ partners. In a maternal health study with a major payor, Kintsugi Voice identified +30% more depressed patients vs. the PHQ2. These patients would have otherwise slipped through the cracks.
