Hi PH, I’m Riku from Meru Health. We’ve built an online medical clinic for treating depression and burnout. Our clinic provides a remote clinician supported treatment program that we deliver via a mobile app. Our clinic offers: 1. A TREATMENT PROGRAM THAT ADAPTS TO INDIVIDUAL NEEDS Our 8-week treatment program combines psychological treatment modules and practices. We individualize the program based on patient’s personal information and needs. 2. DAILY SUPPORT FROM LICENSED THERAPISTS Patients get proactive support on a daily basis (via an in-app chat). 3. ANONYMOUS PEER SUPPORT It’s beneficial to recognize that you are not alone with your challenges and learning how others overcome them. Individuals can self-refer themselves into our clinic in California and Finland: However, we work primarily with proactive employers (eg. Zendesk, WeWork and Palo Alto Medical Foundation) and help them cut down sick leaves and increase productivity. We’ve treated 200+ patients with extremely promising outcomes. Also, we have 2 clinical trials ongoing. Our mission is more than business, it’s personal. Our founders have lost friends and family members to depression, and we want to do everything in our power to help people who suffer.

The World Health Organization has already declared depression a global epidemic, the focus on mental health is very timely -- what sparked the idea and what do you offer customers in a nutshell? How will you measure success? @rikulindholm @ihqkristian @alizbazar

@abadesi thanks for asking! We founded Meru Health, because we had seen family members suffer. We define success using a couple of simple metrics: 1) number of people we've treated 2) treatment outcomes.

Interesting concept. How will revenue be generated in the service ? If revenue is generated via patients, how will you guarantee vulnerable patients aren't taking advantage of ? Is there any regulation needed to provide this kind of service?
