Ontario Shores Centre for Mental Health Sciences (Ontario Shores) and Mozzaz, a digital health company based in Waterloo have announced the launch of an innovative mobile mental health app for patients. The app uses Mozzaz’s mHealth platform and is fully integrated with Ontario Shores’ EMR system. The Mozzaz solution enables patients to actively participate in their care and stay connected to their care teams in between appointments through their mobile devices.
Patients also have the ability to enter scheduled self-assessment forms and access reminders for medications directly into the app, which is seamlessly integrated into the patient’s EMR creating efficiencies for staff at Ontario Shores.
Patients from Ontario Shores’ Transitional Aged Youth, Neuropsychiatry Service, Eating Disorders and Geriatric and Neuropsychiatry Outpatient Services are participating in the project to assist in measuring impact and efficiencies while also helping to identify opportunities to expand the service to other patient populations.
