Can Data Help Close the Mental Health Treatment Gap?

The pandemic has been linked to growth in the prevalence of mental health conditions, yet most people who need support still do not receive it. 

Erin Crump, Vice President of Business Initiatives at RGA, sees solutions in the emerging area of digital mental health. 

She discusses the ways digital services could help close the treatment gap. Insurers are uniquely well positioned to understand customers' health needs based on data gathered from underwriting through claims time. More importantly, insurers can connect individuals to mental health tools and providers. Join Erin as she explores the exciting landscape of digital mental health and identifies opportunities for the industry.
