Empower Your Research with MindLife: Advancing Personalized Mental Health Solutions
In the dynamic and complicated landscape of healthcare every patient’s journey is distinct. In recent years personalisation has emerged as a driving force for optimising patient outcomes in many areas of healthcare. While other domains of physical healthcare benefit from robust data collection, such as blood pressure monitoring and blood component analysis, mental health has historically lacked comprehensive data recording and measurement.
Recently, significant strides have been taken to address this gap through standardised mental health assessment questionnaires; yet adoption remains limited in many countries. The United Kingdom stands out as a trailblazer in this domain, with the National Health Service (NHS) mandating the ongoing assessment of anxiety levels, depression levels, and level of mental health impact for all patients accessing NHS Talking Therapies.
In partnership with the University of Sheffield and Rotherham, Doncaster, and South Humber NHS Trust (RDaSH), MindLife has developed StratCare and AiOracle – AI-driven recommendation tools developed using anonymized patient records.
Our digital mental health solutions, such as UpLift Your Life, provide us with another means of capturing anonymised patient data. For example, the UpLift group therapy programme which we are currently developing, which incorporates a digital app and self-help exercises for users to complete between sessions, will capture a detailed record of patient interventions, frequency, feedback, effectiveness, preferences, and concerns. This trove of information will become an invaluable asset for both therapists and patients, residing securely in the cloud as anonymised data. Researchers will be able to gain access to this invaluable resource, enabling the development of enhanced algorithms.
