FEi is at the forefront of providing data to social policy makers to inform social change, particularly for disadvantaged populations. We have the capabilities to streamline behavioral and mental health databases across federal, state, local, territorial, and international levels; analyze the stored data for key findings; and present it in clear ways to advise policymakers.
FEi develops programs that empower behavioral and mental health providers to assist those in need efficiently and effectively. We are developing programs to perform live (in-office) client profile analysis to assist behavioral and mental health providers in selecting the best customized course of treatment. This treatment suggestion is based on what has proven most statistically successful in the past for clients who fit similar profiles. Other programs head off social problems before they begin, such as our Screening and Brief Intervention to Referral (SBIRT) program, which surveys all incoming patients to assess their risk level for future substance abuse, and alerts providers when early intervention is advised.
FEi believes in empowering local communities. For instance, when we set up our Clinical and Research Laboratory (CORELAB) Management Information System program to reduce infectious diseases in Uganda, we staffed it with local Ugandans at fair trade wages and designed the program to be self-sustained locally, long after our “boots left the ground.”
