As a practitioner (specialist, therapist, doctor) you’re looking for ways to help your patients as much as possible. A person’s mental state can play an important role. At that level PsyMate can be a valuable addition to your treatment.
The PsyMate™ app asks at different times during the day how your patient is doing at that time. Where he or she is? With whom? Is he or she active? To what extent are there feelings of stress, anger or sadness? Does someone take medication? Or stimulants? The questionnaires can be programmed so that they are applicable for all kinds of medical and psychiatric disorders. Think for example of anxiety after heart failure, measuring pain after an operation, monitoring of depressive symptoms and help when reducing medication. The data collected through your patient’s PsyMate, ensures reliable self-observation that gives clues you can use for your interventions. Therapy becomes a co-production and participants are stimulated to direct themselves.
The PsyMate™ app is being developed by the Department of Psychiatry at Maastricht UMC + as a means to get a grip on psychological problems in everyday life. Programs around depression, bipolar disorder and psychosis have been thoroughly and scientifically tested. We are quite ambitious with development plans in terms of Parkinson’s disease, pain, cardiology, hypertension, diabetes and Irritable Bowel Syndrome. If you’re interested, don’t hesitate to contact us to discuss together how we can implement the PsyMate™ in your practice.
You can have the PsyMate™ programmed in a way that you get a tailored solution for your patients. Moreover, using the PsyMate™ is practical and time-saving. We would like to discuss with you how PsyMate can be used in your practice, don’t hesitate to contact us.
