Mood 24/7 (http://www.Mood247.com) a web-based mental health tracking and care coordination technology invented by Dr.
Dr. Kaplin was selected to present the importance of a coordinated care approach to dealing with mental health disorders, such as depression. In the U.S., 25% of the population suffers from a mood disorder and these conditions often make people feel that they are isolated and alone.
Mood 24/7 is an automated mood tracker using patient’s own mobile phones combined with a web portal to consolidate all care-related communications, which is a critical challenge given that mood disorder patients see an average of six specialists per year. The application uses the web and text messaging to track patients’ mood and connect them with their healthcare providers, friends, and family. An adjunct to face-to-face treatment, Mood 24/7 sends a daily text message that prompts self-assessment and reporting of mood on a scale of 1 to 10. Patients can add explanatory notes to their secure web-based personal mood chart that can be reviewed online in real time with care providers to inform treatment decisions.
Mood 24/7 has been shown to statistically increase patient adherence to daily mood tracking in comparison to when using paper or email-based. Active users respond to 80-90% of daily text messages sent to track mood, making this text message-based program more effective than subscription e-mail tracking programs that report an average open rate of 20%* and a click-through-rate of just 3%*. Relaunched this summer, Mood 24/7 boasts over 11,000 users and 500 registered physicians.
