Depression The Hidden Illness

RALEIGH, N.C. - Jul. 7, 2018

It's a Friday morning, the weekend is hours within reach, and your alarm goes off. As you proceed through your morning routine while grabbing a breakfast bar to head out the door to work or class, you feel a weight on your chest. Your brain may feel as though it's on auto-pilot and your body is acting on muscle memory. When you walk into class, there is chatter and excitement about the events taking place later that evening or the music festival that's in town over the weekend. But you don't feel excited. Despite it being Friday, this feels like just another morning in a long stretch of endless days that you are pushing through.

Here's the thing - mental illness often masks itself...

RALEIGH, N.C. - Apr. 5, 2018 - Prolonged Recruitment can cost up to $8M per day
"...the No. 1 cause of delays in clinical trials is the failure to recruit sufficient patients in a timely manner, Schafer said. Indeed, more than 80 percent of all clinical trials fail to meet their patient recruitment targets, according to the National Institutes of Health." "For the drug companies that hire CROs, time is most definitely money, lots and lots of money. Every day that a blockbuster drug is delayed from winning regulatory approval can mean as much as $8 million in lost sales"

Measuring Progress in Mental Health Treatment

JOSH ROBERTO - Oct. 21, 2017 - Using Measurement Data Encourages Treatment Compliance

Anyone that's been through therapy for a mental illness has likely experienced treatment fatigue. Treatment requires a lot of work, and is a long process of ups and downs, with some days better than others. Because of this effort, it is easy to get discouraged when progress is tough to recognize, but the challenges so apparent.

By integrating a measured approach into treatment, both patient and clinician can easily view progress. And not at a subjective level clouded with uncertainty, but rather concrete statistics. This data provides reassurance to individuals that even though things may be difficult, they are in fact getting better. Or conversely, it provides evidence that treatment is not working and that it may be time to try something new. Imagine a runner training for a race, trying to improve their speed without the ability to monitor time or distance. How would they know if they're getting faster?

When starting a treatment plan, patients must be prepared with realistic expectations of progress. There is no magic pill that is going to cure all. Progress is not going to be rapid and profound, but rather slow and difficult at times. Clinicians and Care Givers should regularly remind patients of this, and convey the importance of measuring progress. One method of doing this is by consistently using that measurement data with the patient. With the ability for patients to enter and track data such as mood, social interactions, medication compliance and Care Giver feedback, Clinicians and Patients can spend the majority of their time in sessions focused on treatment, not getting caught up on what happened since their last session.

For patients, the ability for clinicians to access and track their data between sessions (and for clinicians to reach out to the patient with a message if necessary) motivates them to work harder for the next week. Care coordination happens much more quickly with Faro10, as well. Instead of wasting valuable time playing phone tag, therapist and psychiatrist can communicate with one another immediately.

When both Clinician and Patient embrace this measured approach, the treatment process can become more focused and measured with the availability of meaningful data.
