移动医疗大势所趋,英国NHS发布精神卫生服务APP

来源:生物谷 2015-03-25 09:45

2015年3月25日讯/生物谷BIOON/--英国NHS近日发布了首款数字精神卫生服务APP,该APP主要是以在线工具和资源为特色,已被证明能够有效促进心理健康。

患者能够通过NHS精选网站获得在线数据库资源,该网站每月有4000万人次的浏览量,其中970万人次浏览过抑郁的相关内容,600万人次浏览过压力的内容,而940万人次浏览过焦虑的相关信息。由此也可见,抑郁、压力和焦虑已经成为普遍的精神问题和关注焦点。

据估计,大约有15%的英国人具有精神卫生方面的问题,然而其中很大一部分人群发现通过传统渠道获得帮助非常困难。

卫生部门因此希望这部分患者能够通过在线治疗的方式更容易地获得帮助,在线方式更加灵活,并且能够为那些羞于求诊、在意隐私的患者提供更好的求助方式。

NHS的心理卫生部门临床主任Geraldine Strathdee表示,现在越来越多的线上服务能够帮助那些患有精神问题的人群,让他们在合适的时间得到最合适的治疗。

副首相Nick Clegg表示,NHS的这项行动表明NHS采用最前沿的方式帮助社会中需要帮助的人群,这种创新科技带来的关怀将会更加有助于社会公平。(生物谷Bioon.com)

原文:UK launch for mental health apps library

NHS England is today launching the first ever directory of NHS-endorsed digital mental health services.

The Mental Health Apps Library will feature online tools, resources and apps proven to be effective in improving mental health outcomes.

Patients will be able to access to the library via the NHS Choices website, which gets over 40 million visits per month, 9.7 million of which are to pages on depression, 6 million to stress, and 9.4 million to anxiety.

Around 15% of the UK population is estimated to have a common mental health disorder, but a significant number find it difficult to seek help through traditional routes.

Health officials are hoping that such patients may find it easier to get treatment through online therapy, which offers flexible access as well as discretion for those worried about stigma and privacy.

“Increasing access to digital services which support those suffering with mental health difficulties will help people get the right care, at the right time,” said Geraldine Strathdee, NHS England’s Clinical Director for Mental Health.

Deputy prime minister Nick Clegg said the move “showcases the NHS at its best - pioneering new ways of treating and supporting some of the most vulnerable in our society, harnessing innovative technology to help build a fairer society for us all”.
