The South London and Maudsley (SLaM) trust allows mental health patients to access and add to their health records online.
“I think there’s a misconception in healthcare that mental health patients don’t want to share information or engage with health professionals, but if anything they want to get more involved and more engaged. I’m convinced that this project will be of great value,” said Mike Denis, director of information strategy at the trust.
This sounds a fascinating innovation. As you can see from the image, the interface is typical of Web 2.0 tools, and is more resonant of DropBox than dementia praecox.
Some of the followers of this blog are connected to SLaM. How is it working out so far?
