Presentation Theme

Supporting Doctor-Patient Collaboration with Tele-Board MED

In psychotherapy and addiction care, treatment outcomes can be decisively improved by enhancing the relationship between patient and therapist. We developed the interactive documentation system Tele-Board MED as an adjunct to talk-based therapy sessions. The system offers a whiteboard-inspired graphical user interface which allows doctor and patient to take notes jointly during the treatment session. We present the results of evaluation studies by comparing different prototypes and testing scenarios, reaching from early simulations to attempts of implementations in clinical routines.
