Over 8 million Americans have a personality disorder, but only 17% of those with a personality disorder seek help. The additional cost to care for a patient with personality disorder is estimated to be between $13,000 and $17,000 per year1. Personality disorders refer to a group of behavioral health conditions typically characterized as long-term patterns and thoughts that are unhealthy and inflexible, typically affecting at least 2 of the following areas:
  • Way of thinking about oneself and others
  • Way of responding emotionally
  • Way of relating to other people

Biomedix Xchange and personality disorder screening

Biomedix Xchange LogoThe Biomedix Xchange population health management platform is a web-based solution designed to enable value-based care organizations to coordinate care through an integrated technology stack structured to identify multiple chronic conditions and behavioral health information, and encapsulate that information into a single patient encounter.  

Historically the DSM-IV was used to identify personality disorders, but Biomedix employs a tool that can identify with a high degree of specificity and sensitivity, whether or not a patient has a personality disorder, in 8 questions.

Biomedix Xchange scores the personality disorder level, and enables healthcare professionals to track the progression of the personality disorder over time, facilitating the cost-effective improvement of patient outcomes.
