What Healthcare Leaders are Saying


"We think sometimes at WellSpark that instead of asking those medical questions first, we ask Silver Fern questions first, because we think it’s that important. My favorite time of the day is to listen to Silver Fern calls. I love to hear how strong the nurses and coaches feel."

Former Senior Director of Total Population Health at WellSpark Health



I recommend the Behavioral Diagnostic Platform for any health system, health plan or disease management program hoping to improve diabetes outcomes by addressing individual patient barriers to care.
"I am extremely impressed by the Behavioral Diagnostic Platform created by Silver Fern Healthcare. There is finally movement and recognition of the importance of assessing and addressing social determinants and behavioral and emotional health issues when managing a complex condition like type 2 diabetes. I recommend the Behavioral Diagnostic Platform for any health system, health plan or disease management program hoping to improve diabetes outcomes by addressing individual patient barriers to care."

I think of it as that special set of keys to unlock those areas and get the answers we’re looking for from our members.

I think any practitioner that wants and honest answer from their members would find value in using Silver Fern.

I feel like Silver Fern really gives us a good picture of the whole person rather than just assessing their height, weight, and simple biometric information.

There’s no tool like Silver Fern.


Wendy P.
Health Coach at EmblemHealth Gold



The latest update [the member] gave me was that he was able to go to his child’s graduation, and he told me that if it wasn’t for that Silver Fern module, he probably wouldn’t have made it.


Nicole C.
Senior Health Coach at WellSpark Health



The platform provides great teaching opportunities when barriers are illuminated. In those moments, I can provide guidance, education, or follow-up with an appropriate referral to behavioral health, dieticians, diabetic educator.
"The Silver Fern platform has helped me to ask more in-depth questions than I was asking before, so it provides me with a better assessment of what’s going on with the participant. Sometimes the results are an eye-opener for the participant as well. They may not have realized what path they were going down until I ask them the targeted questions, and then talking it through helps them realize that they need to make some changes. The platform provides great teaching opportunities when barriers are illuminated. In those moments, I can provide guidance, education, or follow-up with an appropriate referral to behavioral health, dieticians, diabetic educator. Overall, the platform has helped me to develop a better plan of care for patients."
