The objective of this study is to evaluate the impact of a client portal in supporting access to mental healthcare services.
The study is open to up to 100 IACP members, ideally, 50 practitioners that currently offer online care and 50 that don't. These members would trial and feedback on the Wellola portal. Our focus will be understanding the key needs of this particular cohort of IACP Members, who would trial key features of the Wellola portal free of charge for up to 6 months.
What Do We Hope To Achieve?
In Ireland 18.5% of the population report problems related to mental health, which is one of the highest rates in Europe. At Wellola, our aim with this study is to improve access to mental healthcare supports, counselling and psychotherapy for our citizens.
Furthermore, we wish to better understand the attitudes toward and adoption of digital healthcare tools among the mental health care provider community in Ireland.
We support this effort by giving practitioners secure digital tools that allow for multiple means of communication - features like online booking, telecare, and messaging can simplify the process and bring care to patients who struggle with physically attending a session.
