Mood monitoring (by sms/text messaging) and mood intervention service for people with bipolar disorder (SMS-MM service)
|Collaborators:||Dept Psychiatry, Univ Oxford|
Phase I of this project will develop and pilot the service. In Phase II two randomised controlled trials are planned. The health economic component of Phase I will assess the direct cost impact of the SMS-MM service for both the patients and the NHS in a real life setting, evaluate the broader health care resource use and cost implications of introducing the SMS-MM service for patients with bipolar disease, and estimate the general quality-of-life impact of events measured in patients’ notes by using the EuroQoL EQ-5D. In addition, a systematic review will be conducted to collect all necessary input data for a value-of-information (VOI) analysis preliminary to the design of the planned RCTs.
