• What does ITA Salud Mental contribute to today’s society?

We provide experience in the treatment of mental health illnesses through our professionals, and in the most appropriate spaces for the needs of each patient at all times. We also work through our Foundation in the field of prevention and promotion of healthy habits in mental health.
We firmly believe that our contribution should be aimed at both prevention and treatment.

• What mental health problems currently exist? Have any of them increased as a result of the pandemic?

The most prevalent continue to be anxiety and depression. Some disorders have appeared in the child and adolescent population that years ago were not in our centers, such as addictions to technology, or cases of problems related to bullying.
The pandemic has significantly increased mental health problems. Some publications speak of a 200% increase in child-juvenile emergencies, and the impact in adults, in emergencies is greater than 60%, it has also been published that with respect to depression, 3 times more cases have been found and in anxiety 4 times. more than the incidence figures of the World Health Organization.

• What can Ita offer as a differentiator from other types of centres?

ITA has a specialized treatment focused on each mental health problem, we specifically treat each disorder with highly specialized professionals and centers.In addition, we continuously improve our treatments with the contributions of our professionals and with technology, through the innovation policy with which we work at ITA

• What has the merger and acquisition of Ita by the Korian France group contributed to?

We have become part of the first European company in the care of the elderly and in mental health, with a network of centers distributed in 8 countries and with more than 65,000 professionals. This allows us to advance our knowledge, sharing experiences with other professionals from other countries, and improve faster.

It also allows us to grow continuously and rapidly.

• What does the ecosystem around Ita Mental Health contribute? (universities, technology partners…)

It allows us to advance in the improvement of our treatments from all perspectives and areas of knowledge. The collaboration between all the elements of the ecosystem allows us to address different areas such as training, innovation, or research, in a coordinated way, increasing our quality and adding value to the sector.

• What is your opinion of new entrepreneurs or Startups that work for the benefit of health?
Right now there are many, many startups in the health sector. I think we are experiencing a real boom, due in part to the impact of the pandemic.

Of all these startups, it is necessary to see how many really provide services or products of value. We are seeing the wheel invented several times…, but there are also some with possible clear contributions of value.

 

At Korian we already have a procedure to be able to evaluate which ones can contribute to us and which ones cannot, so it allows us to work with those that really offer us something that we can pass on to our patients and professionals in such a way that there is added value.

• How is Ita Salud Mental going to develop in the future? Are there new projects or approaches planned?

Our growth is going to be significant in the coming years, both in terms of new acquisitions and continuing to diversify and specialize our services. It is also our goal to have a footprint in those parts of Spain where we are not yet, without losing sight of international growth.

• What has it meant to receive the Pasteur Award for business excellence and assistance in mental health?

A recognition of the work well done by our teams of professionals during these years aAnd a motivation to continue working and improving.

• What is A.S.D, what goals and values does it contribute to today’s society thinking about the future?

The Digital Health Association was created by a series of professionals in the sector more than 7 years ago. Our initial objectives were to achieve a space where we could debate and advance in the knowledge of digital technologies applied to clinical processes.

Over the years we have become a benchmark for knowing the value that these technologies can provide, also for their implementation processes, and for training issues with different partners.

We are pleased to be able to have among our partners very different professional profiles that allow us to always have visions of the application of technology from different perspectives. So we have medical professionals, nurses, pharmacists, engineers, etc… who work in hospitals, primary schools, pharmaceutical companies, technology companies, universities, startups, consultants, etc… This mix of profiles is extremely rich in order to advance and improve our experience and knowledge.
