Digital Therapeutic Interaction
Thesis project description
In the realm of healthcare, technology-driven solutions have become essential to assist patients, therapists, and support networks. In the context of mental health, where personalized care is paramount, the development of thoughtfully crafted technological tools is imperative. Individuals facing mental health challenges require solutions that align with their unique needs and capabilities. A well-designed user interface (UI) and an enriching user experience (UX) are critical for ensuring that these tools are effective and accessible.
This project focuses on addressing the pressing demand for innovative mental health interventions. It involves the creation of a digital mental health tool powered by Coversational AI. This tool will enable an adaptive assessment of individuals' mental health states, guiding towards potential medical conditions through advanced AI models. The tool's functionality extends beyond assessment - a comprehensive one-pager report will be generated, aiding the healthcare professionals in understanding the individual's mental health status. The central objective of this project is to design an interactive platform that seamlessly connects patients with appropriate mental health professionals. The platform will offer personalized recommendations of psychiatrists based on AI-driven assessments. It will facilitate the exchange of essential information, ensuring that patients find the right specialists for their unique needs. Additionally, the project aims to explore the implementation of priority-based case management, enhancing patient care through AI-generated urgency insights. By creating an intelligent digital tool that aligns with the complexities of mental health, this project aspires to contribute to improved mental well-being and support networks.
Managerial value of the research
Our project is at the forefront of addressing critical mental health issues, utilizing AI to create a tool that performs adaptive patient assessments and personalized psychiatrist matching, focusing on prevalent conditions like depression, anxiety, and stress.Why is this critical?
