Only two days after the public launch of MyOutcomes®UK, Health-Factors is proud to announce that we have been honoured with the Medipex NHS Innovation Award for the field of mental health and well-being.
Medipex is an innovation hub for the UK's National Health Service (NHS). The Medipex Innovation Awards provide a platform to showcase pioneering new ideas and technologies developed by NHS staff working with industry and academia internationally to improve patient care and make services more efficient. Innovation in the NHS was celebrated at the Eleventh Medipex NHS Innovation Awards and showcase, which took place on the 8th of October 2015 at Oulton Hall near Leeds, UK. Seven teams were crowned winners across five categories: Digital Health, GP & Primary Care, Mental Health & Well-being, Medical Devices & Diagnostics and Secondary Care. They received their awards from the TV presenter and NHS pediatrician Dr. Ranj Singh.
MyOutcomes®UK won The Medipex NHS Innovation Award for Mental Health and Well-being.
Dianne Tetley and Sami Timimi from Lincolnshire Partnership NHS Foundation Trust, and Cindy Hansen From Healthâ€“Factors were selected as joint winners for their work on MyOutcomes®UK. MyOutcomes®UK is a secure, web-based feedback and data management system that supports the practical application of an Outcomes Orientated Approach to the delivery of Mental Health Services (OO-AMHS). Patients simply input feedback at the beginning and end of each session with the practitioner, and the software displays a graphical interpretation of this feedback to check patient functioning and the quality of the therapeutic alliance. Reports can be created from aggregated data to enable clinicians and managers to monitor therapeutic outcomes by case-load, team, or service, and will be useful for generating recovery and service activity metrics.
Commercial licenses to use MyOutcomes®UK are available with the potential to sell to mental health providers, nationally and internationally. eLearning modules approved by the British Psychological Society are included in the license fee and optional face-to-face training is also available.
