OxfordMental Health
Start Date: 1 May 2015 End Date: 31 Mar 2016

Background

Does an integrated service for people with bipolar disorder lead to better outcomes that a standard Community Mental Health Team service augmented with patient reported outcomes? And is the system cost-effective?

Aim

The aim is to provide a cost-effective service that can provide care for patients across a wide geographical area, in a way which is feasible, scalable, and acceptable to patients.

The new care model will provide specialist structured assessment plus recommendations for both self and primary care management plus continuous remote monitoring using True Colours and a clearly specified approach to early intervention.
