After nearly 25 years at Kaiser Permanente, Trina Histon recently took on a new challenge at Woebot Health, the company behind a chatbot for mental healthcare.


Histon’s new role as vice president of clinical product strategy will focus on integrating Woebot into clinical care. She previously spent several years at Kaiser developing a process to get digital mental health apps from clinicians into patients’ hands. 


Histon sat down with MobiHealthNews to discuss incorporating apps into the provider workflow and the future of digital mental health tools for more severe conditions. 

The interview covered:


  • The challenges of integrating digital tools into clinical care
  • Scaling up quickly
  • Ramping up care for higher-acuity populations
