Residing behind the medical firewall, the participant data is stored for analysis by medical professionals according to Human Subject Study/HIPAA privacy rules.
Here clinicians log in to a HIPPA compliant online system to view patient risk.
Patients are presented with an overall risk rating, with statistics, and clinical notes.
Disclaimer: Poulin and Thompson are the study investigators.
Here the patient is flagged for a variety of risks from Green (Low), to Yellow (Nominal), to Red (High) risk. This profile is monitored at 1 minute intervals.
Here we examine the patient's risk rating in detail. Including: his/her overall numeric rating in the system, the probability (or confidence) in this rating, keywords that are specific to his/her profile, and the specific date that the risk assessment was made.
We view the collection of predictions for the patient, to look for trends. Much like a physician of internal medicine looks for a consistent heartbeat, we provide a 'mental health ticker' to the mental health professional.
Here we visualize the patient's risk in relation to the clinician's other patients.
Clinicians add notes, specific to the patient. The combined analysis of the patient's self-reported text, as well as the clinician's observations provides a broader picture of text driven risk.
If a patient’s risk suddenly changes, or the clinician wants to drill down on specific phrases, the clinician can view the original source content from the various networks.
