How Color can partner with you

Accessible universal or targeted screening platform

Our configurable, HIPAA-compliant screening model allows multiple approaches to identifying individuals in need, earlier. We offer simple web-based or alternate screening flows in multiple languages, manage consent, and can target specific populations or conditions with clinically-validated tools.

Timely, accessible care for every community member

Color’s 50-state clinical network supports phone- and video-based consultations with licensed, high-quality coaches, therapists (including LCSWs and LMFTs), and psychiatrists, typically within 48 hours for those in need — as well as a triage line for acute needs. Our providers accept Medicaid and Medicare patients.

Handoffs and referral management for continuity of care

We seamlessly collect consent and HIPAA authorization from patients or guardians to allow for secure record sharing. We provide referrals and warm handoffs to support systems for ongoing and acute patient needs. After care, we ensure follow-up protocols based on the assessment.

Group- and peer-based mental health approach

Our cost-effective group- and peer-based mental health approach is built on a clinically-validated platform. This critical, community-oriented model can improve symptoms, including a nearly 50% symptom reduction among participants with moderate to severe anxiety and depression.
