Who developed deprexis® ?
deprexis® was developed by a multidisciplinary team of clinical psychologists, physicians, software engineers, graphic artists, and others at Gaia AG, Hamburg, Germany, a company specialized in research and development in e-Health. Servier has the exclusive rights for the promotion and distribution of deprexis® worldwide.
How does deprexis® interact with patients ?
deprexis® is individually tailored: users navigate through the program by selecting among pre-determined response options and subsequent content is tailored to match expressed needs and preferences (Meyer et al., 2009). The order of displayed content can vary, as can depth and detail depending on preferences. Text passages are also added or omitted depending on personal suitability, and some content sequences are presented only for those with matching interests. There are 11 content modules, based on the theory of CBT.
For which type of patients has deprexis been designed?
deprexis® is indicated for patients presenting symptoms of unipolar depression. It can be used in association with a pharmacological or psychotherapeutic treatment, but also provides a useful solution for patents who don’t have easy access to the therapist.
