King's College LondonMonitoring mental health
Working with the Department of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry at King's College London, Digital Marmalade has produce two different applications, MyHealthE and MyJournE, both of which focus on the monitoring of the mental health of the nations youth.
A simpler way
During treatment parents or carers are asked to complete questionnaires so clinicians can measure the effectiveness of the treatment being administered.
Previously, this required the completion and return of a paper questionnaire, which naturally led to questionnaires being left uncompleted or unreturned.
myHealthE allows questionnaires to be completed on any device, at any time, wherever there is an internet connection.
Easy monitoring for parents
Following the initial consultation, parents or carers are invited, by text, to join the system through a simple but secure registration process.
Access to an online portal allows them to complete questionnaires and track their child’s progress throughout the treatment.
Completed questionnaires generate scores against a series of outcomes, and parents or carers can see how these scores compare to the previously completed questionnaire, as well as how these scores have changed over time.
Hassle free for teachers
To get data from a different perspective, myHealthE allows teachers an easy way to complete questionnaires on their students.
All the children in their care are accessible through one login, with automated reminders prompting them when a new questionnaire should be completed.
Reduced workload for clinicians
The amount of general admin for clinicians is greatly reduced through myHealthE.
Reminders to complete questionnaires are automatically distributed by text and email through an integration with the GOV.UK Notify service, at intervals defined through the system by the clinician.
Results from both parents/carers and teachers are compiled and stored in a single secure place and sent straight into the NHS Carenotes database.
