Conceived and developed entirely during the Code-a-thon, Only One is a fun, functioning mobile app to pre-screen adolescents for depression/anxiety. Screening is required under the Affordable Care Act, but can get overlooked because of time/cost constraints. Now, teens can use their own words to respond to scenarios mapping directly to a widely-used, validated manual screening tool (PHQ-9). The app uses natural language processing to score responses and provide an instant flag to pediatricians (email, portal or QR code) so that precious time during annual wellness visits is maximized.
