Integrating AISquared & MINDtick: a personalised digital community health care mode

Flagship Program: Changing Health Trajectories in Chronic Disease

Project Description

The AISquared (Flinders University) and MINDtick (goAct Pty. Ltd.) platforms are currently deployed independently in community health clinics (e.g. public mental health services). AISquared brings utility and adds real-world value to electronic health record (EHR) data from the Australian government my Health Record initiative. MINDtick brings personalisation (personal data) and day-to-day momentary (temporal) assessment, monitoring and awareness of chronic health conditions via a smartphone application.

Linking the day-to-day objective measures and insights from personal data with EHR data is a more powerful combination for developing algorithms that lead to improved decision support and early intervention opportunities. This project will create new tools by combining the two existing platforms – MINDtick and AISquared – and integrating these tools within existing programs to enable a personalised digital community health care model.

In community health clinic settings, these tools guide case managers to better manage caseloads, prioritise patients for discharge and incorporate additional insights on patients’ health and behaviours outside the clinic in order to further personalise decisions and monitor patient health trajectories and outcomes.

The tools that arise from this project can be commercialised in the clinical care space.

The MINDtick platform will also be positioned in general populations e.g. workplace settings (SMEs) and general community settings (defined by geographical areas e.g. local councils) to allow data from more diverse non-clinical cohorts to be made available for analysis.

Members of these general population non-clinical communities receive a smartphone application (MINDtick) that serves two purposes: first, it meets a user driven need with the community and through this achieves broad reach and engagement; second, it addresses health and wellbeing through regular assessments of every-day mental health, wellbeing, and behaviours. The app offers just in time self-help strategies and resources. Furthermore, on a needs basis, the platform algorithms step users up by linking and connecting them to available health services if self-help care is not working.
