As one of the largest hospital-based research institutes in Canada, Lawson is committed to furthering scientific knowledge to advance health care around the world. When 400 people were identified to participate in the Mental Health Engagement Network (MHEN) project, our technology provided the means to give them control over their mental health by tracking their moods and medication. The toolkit participants received enabled them to share information and communicate directly with their care provider, and offered a range of other simple-to-use tools to track their overall progress.
By allowing project participants and their providers the ability to store and access health information, participants were better able to document their health and continue their therapy at home as well as at their fingertips by using the mobile application. The solution also gave providers access to each participant’s health record, thus giving them insight into their wellbeing prior to scheduled appointments. Providers received alerts when participants documented the same mood in their health tracker 3 or more times in a row, allowing providers to intervene when necessary outside of regular appointments.
