Our participatory grantmaking alters the traditional process of philanthropic giving by empowering service providers and community-based organizations to define the strategy around a specific issue area or population.
TangramCare asks and seeks answers to the“WHY” question behind patient choices, behaviors and circumstances. They use branching logic to streamline and personalize screeners to an individual patient in order to provide a more accurate behavioral snapshot to the patient’s care team. Behavioral issues like sleep, cognition, depression, abuse, pain etc. are at the root of many patients’ decisions and non-compliance issues that exacerbate chronic disease management. Based on prominent medical advisories, their mobile screening platform uses branching logic to streamline and personalize screeners to an individual patient.
Delivered in an IT, setting, and personnel agnostic format, their intuitive and engaging interface de-stigmatizes behavioral assessments to go beyond mental illness to include assessment of emotional wellness and resiliency. Using this low cost screening tool, it presents a comprehensive behavioral snapshot to the care team for evaluation, medical decision-making, and care. They ask, listen, and implicitly accept. Ultimately, they are working towards designing behaviorally informed care plans that lead to better outcomes and lower costs.
