MobileTx

Project Description

Psychotherapy is an evidence-based treatment of mental disorders. Therapists aim to build a strong therapeutic alliance, to enhance the patients' motivation for change, to provide disorder-specific therapeutic techniques, and to help the patient in dealing with difficulties in daily life, since all these factors have been shown to influence the process and outcome of psychotherapy.

The MobileTx project aims to assist the therapist in this process by introducing e-health tools into the therapeutic process that helps to transfer the therapeutic achievements made in the clinic into the real life of the patient. This might be beneficial not only in psychotherapy but also in other therapies that use homework and highlight the communication between therapists and patients such as physiotherapy and social work. Cutting-edge mobile technology will be combined with process-aware information systems and year-long clinical experience to implement a series of e-health tools and evaluate their efficacy empirically. This projects extends the philosophy of the DBIS institute, which establishes new ways for combining mobile technology with high-level process management in the medical domain (see e.g. QuestionSys for another project following the same concept by introducing an innovative tool for the improvement of mobile data collection in the medical domain).
