MountainPass collaborated with us in the conceptualization and development of Behavioral Apptivation. Behavioral Apptivation is a mobile application adaptation of Brief Behavioral Activation (BA), which is an empirically supported therapy for the treatment of depression and other co-occurring disorders. MountainPass developed both a patient mobile application and a web-based provider portal. Both components help to make the treatment easier for providers to administer and for patients to complete.

Working with MountainPass was easy and straightforward. They were able to take our ideas and turn them into wireframes for our review and then into the mobile application that we are now testing in a clinical trial. Moreover, Jack and Zach (lead developer on the project) were always responsive and they took the initiative to schedule regular meetings with us so that we could complete the project in a timely manner.

We were also very impressed by Jack’s knowledge of Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) regulations, which have been very important to us as we developed a product that we anticipate will be utilized in healthcare settings. In working with Jack his MountainPass team, we felt confident that we were developing a HIPAA compliant product that health care professionals would be eager to use.

It has been a wonderful experience to work with MountainPass and we would highly recommend Jack and his team to others looking to develop mobile applications and websites. We very much look forward to continuing to collaborate with MountainPass in the future.
