Tiatros utilizes technology including IBM Watson to support America’s workforces
Facing a rapid shift to the work from home culture in the face of the COVID-19 crisis, Tiatros announces a unique online therapeutic, mental health counseling and peer support platform proven effective with large, remote employee populations. Tiatros’ employer-sponsored programs allow employees and their families to address their mental health online while improving their productivity and teamwork.
Tiatros brings to the workforce a portfolio of HIPAA- and HITRUST-compliant online psychotherapeutic and resilience programs. The approach is based on Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) methods, the evidence-based gold standard for addressing stress, anxiety, depression, trauma, addiction, adjustment disorders, and insomnia. Tiatros builds online social communities in which participants encourage and support each other’s progress. Participants work online with expert clinicians both individually and together to build psychological resilience skills that enable them to be more successful at work and at home, and to assume an active self-management of their own health and wellbeing.
"We believe Tiatros can help a global workforce thrown into a state of uncertainty," said William J. Kassler, MD, MPH, IBM’s Deputy Chief Health Officer. "Using technology to support open dialogue around mental health can help alleviate any stigma head-on while creating a judgment-free work environment."
Tiatros programs deliver online mental health counseling in the following ways:
Relevant and Expert Quality – Tiatros programs are designed by experts to address the specific challenges remote workforces are grappling with during the COVID-19 crisis, including social isolation, general anxiety about the future, feeling distracted and losing the ability to focus, uncertainty about the economy, job loss, retirement depletion, falling stock prices, work-related stressors, and challenges at home.
Safe and Secure – Tiatros is HIPAA- and HITRUST-compliant. Within the platform, facilitators and expert clinicians are trained to identify and help individuals who may be struggling, or even in danger.
Effective and Engaging – Participants complete their Tiatros programs at a rate of 70%, with increased levels of engagement - a significantly higher rate than many other psychotherapeutic interventions. Tiatros’ impressive clinical outcomes are published in peer-reviewed medical journals by independent clinical research groups.
Scalable and Affordable – Tiatros can reach 100% of employees wherever they are, on their personal devices, at their own convenience. The programs scale to deliver online mental health counseling at both a massive reach and lower cost.
"Mental wellbeing is critical to the happiness, health and productivity of individual employees, work groups, and entire workforces," said Kimberlie Cerrone, Tiatros’ Founder and CEO. "Tiatros’ proven CBT-based programs enable employees and, if desired, their families, to access online counseling and peer support in a convenient, secure way. We’re delighted to work with great organizations who are focused on providing mental health solutions as they navigate these unprecedented circumstances."
