Treatment for mental health problems should ocus on the needs of the individual seeking help, enabling these individuals to have a more active role in their treatment process and clinical decisions.

movisens provides leading products in objective AND subjective data collection for ambulatory research. In IMMERSE, movisens is developing a digital prototype, using the TherapyDesigner platform. This prototype will be used in a multinational study to investigate the impact on patient care. And this latest project highlights our continued commitment and ability to deliver large-scale projects for our research clients.

Goals and approach

IMMERSE (Implementing Mobile Mental health Recording Strategy for Europe) brings together an interdisciplinary group of researchers to advance the transformation of mental health care in Europe into true person-centered care.
To achieve this, IMMERSE decided to implement the Experience Sampling Method (ESM) and integrate it into an innovative clinical Digital Health tool. This Digital Mobile Mental Health (DMMH) platform consists of an ESM app that captures self-reports of mental health status in daily life, a data analytics platform that processes the data, and a user interface to visualize and provide feedback to users.

Innovations and prospects

The prototype platform from IMMERSE portrays the first solution for therapists who’d like to generate a digtal based therapy system without requiring an IT specialist.
Unlike previous solutions, these therapy systems may be used in clinical trials and enable innovative DMMH tools to be seamlessly adapted to the needs of service users, clinicians and healthcare management/provider management. IMMERSE enables the evaluation of therapy approaches and methods with minimal cost and time and revolutionizes the speed of innovation for novel person-centered therapy approaches.
