Build new care models for mental health patients through virtual and remote monitoring technologies.
This project will design and test a virtual mental health service care model.
In partnership with public mental health services across South Australia, researchers will look to transform mental health services using technology to remotely and efficiently identify and target interventions to mental health patients who may be falling through care gaps.
The tools and resources developed in this project will enable mental health services to run remote check-ins on mental health patients, ensuring they receive continuum of care. This will help reduce the amount of mental health patients who end up in emergency departments/hospitals.
