15 June, 2016, Bath—Healthcare applications developer Mayden today announced that Wellmind Health is the latest service provider to join Prism, the groundbreaking new online referral hub for psychological therapies.

Mental health services are under enormous pressure with demand for services increasing year on year. It is estimated that by 2030, there will be around 2 million more adults in the UK suffering with mental health problems. It is crucial that the NHS find new and innovative ways of working to reach those in need. Improving Access to Psychological therapy (IAPT) services are now turning to digital, embracing online therapies as part of their offering to patients.

Prism was created by Mayden to enable therapists to seamlessly and securely refer appropriate patients to a range of online therapy providers for treatment. All related progress notes and outcome data is then transmitted directly back into the patient’s NHS record in iaptus, the record management system used by around 70% of IAPT services.

It is anticipated that Prism will greatly ease IAPT capacity issues, waiting lists and service costs, while providing patients with faster access to a wider range of treatment via established online therapy services.

Wellmind Health runs evidence-based online mental health training programmes to empower patients to self-manage their depression, anxiety, stress or persistent pain. Studies from leading academic institutions have found Wellmind programmes to be effective training for patients looking to improve their self-management skills.

"Wellmind’s programmes are a great addition to Prism. Their programmes are engaging, easy to follow and easy to apply to daily life, as well as being backed by a wealth of studies. We are very pleased to be able to add them to the growing catalogue of online providers now available via Prism."

Chris Eldridge, Director of Operations, Mayden.

Prism is a truly ground breaking system for improving patient access to psychological therapies and Wellmind Health is proud to be part of it. I’m especially looking forward to seeing our programmes perform on Prism, as one of its key features is the in-depth measurement of patient outcomes."

Richard Latham, CEO, Wellmind Health.

Prism is in a pilot stage with six eHealth providers and five IAPT services. There is currently a waiting list to join the project.
