“Cost pressures require that more is done for less and providers therefore must find innovative ways to deliver services.” – Annual Report of the Chief Medical Officer, 2013

At present, IAPT has the capacity to meet just 15% of demand for psychological therapy services. And the pressure continues to build. The Mental Health Foundation estimates that by 2030 there will be around 2 million more adults in the UK suffering with mental health problems.

The addition of online therapy to your service’s offerings can reduce waiting lists and treatment costs, while enhancing patient choice and even improving outcomes.

Prism enables your service to treat more patients more quickly by offering a simple, protected and secure method for IAPT services to connect patients to the benefits of online psychological therapy.

The system allows services to both refer patients for online therapy and to monitor their progress and outcomes directly within iaptus. It is NHS-approved to send encrypted referrals and outcomes data between ehealth provider and a patient’s digital care record via the N3 network.
