Challenging targets for mental healthcare provision are encouraging innovative trusts to look afresh at how best to deliver effective talking therapies. Unified Communications now provides the opportunity to augment more traditional care paths.
Skype for Business can revolutionise how clinicians support the treatment of depression, stress, anxiety and phobias.
Face to face consultations can now be augmented with voice, video and instant messaging that offers patients more frequent contact and reduced waiting times
Outsourcery’s Talking Therapies App enables clinicians to reach out to patients via any device, be that tablet, phone, laptop or desktop.
Clinicians will be able to create secure "virtual" consultations and deliver therapy via voice, video and instant messaging with the anonymity of attendees protected and the ability to record the sessions where appropriate.
The Outsourcery App enables you to deploy a Skype user experience familiar to many users but customised to your organisations brand identity.
Clinicians will have a secure logon that enables them to plan, schedule and launch therapy sessions with an interface that is easy to navigate and populate.
Talking Therapy sessions can be easily added to Outlook calendars for required colleagues and invitations issued to participants.
Patients will have their own conference sign-in screen with a welcome screen and the opportunity to reassure them of their anonymity. Once admitted to the conference, the clinician can share content to stimulate discussion and control patient video and voice access where needed.
Help and useful guidance both in terms of the Apps use and confidentiality plus broader guidance for patients can be made available as a helpful resource.
