Our Pathway Platform
Our Pathway Platform is a highly specialized proprietary cloud-based learning management system for the digital delivery of mental health therapeutic training and the clinical reporting of its effectiveness for the service users of a healthcare provider.
Clinicians and therapists access the platform through a secure web-based management interface to deliver a therapeutic intervention by providing a service user with access to a place on an online training programme. The management interface displays their level of engagement and satisfaction with the course and reports their self-assessed outcomes in terms of measurements of their mental health. The platform enables a wide variety of clinical outcome measurements with reports for questionnaires such as; Stress (PSS), Depression (PHQ-9), Anxiety (GAD-7), Disability (ODI) and Pain Self Efficacy (PSEQ).
The data held on the platform is highly secure with our IT operations being certified as PCI DSS compliant. The platform supports secure web endpoints to effectively communicate and integrate with different healthcare platforms. We are part of Prism which enables NHS clinicians and therapists to seamlessly and securely refer appropriate patients to our online therapeutic programmes for treatment. All related progress notes and outcome data is then transmitted directly back into the patient’s NHS record in iaptus, the record management system used by around 70% of NHS mental health IAPT services.
Here at Wellmind Media, we are dedicated to maintaining the highest levels of data security to safeguard the personal health information of our programme participants. For this we implement granular security practices that help mitigate the risks pertaining to sensitive patient data and satisfy a broad array of health data compliance requirements from both the United Kingdom and the United States.
