* Illustrate the application of Litesprite's first game, Sinasprite, in addressing stress, anxiety and depression
* Describe the implementation of gaming in an ambulatory care-integrated behavioral health clinic, including reimbursement
* Review outcomes and the impact to patient care

This event is designed for:
Individuals with an interest in behavioral health integration models, member engagement platforms, leveraging technology and gaming platforms to improve member health.

About Litesprite:
Litesprite is a care coordination platform that uses games as the primary patient engagement mechanism and combines them with machine learning and big data to improve health outcomes for a variety of chronic health conditions.

The initial game, Sinasprite, uses evidence-based treatment methods, including CBT-based strategies and meditation, to help people manage stress, anxiety, and depression. Sinasprite is the first video game to receive a US Surgeon General System for Health award, and the only one being recommended/prescribed in medical clinics today, including the U.S. Army.

Litesprite's innovation has been recognized by financial and in–kind awards by the U.S. Army, Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, SXSW, Livestrong Foundation, and Singularity University. The work has been well received by attendees at American Psychological Association and North American Primary Research Care Group annual meetings. The firm has been extended an invitation to be a mentor at the American Psychiatric Association's Innovation Zone. They have been featured on NPR KUOW Morning edition, NBC King 5's Tech Talk, and Huffington Post.
