mRESIST: a mobile innovation for schizophrenia management

Keywords: Disease Management, mHealth, Schizophrenia
Short description
The m-RESIST solution is an innovative disease management system based on mobile technologies, addressed to empower patients with treatment-resistant schizophrenia, which will engage them, together with the professionals and caregivers, in active participation in therapeutic processes, enabling them to better self-manage their condition. The m-RESIST ecosystem provides patients, caregivers and health professionals the ability to enhance their daily activities through two main interfaces. 1) A mobile app connected to a smartwatch: this pair of devices actively and passively collects and processes data coming from the patient, providing feedback according to three specific therapeutic interventions; namely, symptom management, treatment adherence and healthy lifestyle. Caregivers have access to a subset of functionalities of the mobile app. 2) A web dashboard: used by the health professionals to indicatively upload information related to their patients’ health conditions, as well as to communicate with them, monitor their status, and activate and configure the 3 therapeutic interventions available. All the above are supported via the Sensor Module, the m-RESIST Information Repository (mIR), the Clinical Decision Support System (CDSS), the Recommender, and the Predictive Module.
