Overview of Innovation:
My Possible Self
A digital self-help programme for mild to moderate stress anxiety and depression.

About My Possible Self​
  • My Possible Self is a digital programme which is available online or via a mobile app.
     
  • The programme consists of 14 proven self-help modules and additional features which use effective cognitive behavioural therapy, interpersonal therapy, problem solving therapy and positive psychology.
     
  • The data provided by patients integrates with existing clinical systems including SystmOne, EMIS Web and Vision. This allows healthcare professionals within primary, secondary and community care to track and monitor progress to make early intervention where necessary.
     
  • My Possible Self has been proven by the University of New South Wales, Australia to significantly reduce stress, anxiety and depression after just 8 weeks.
.How does My Possible Self work?
  • GPs can register patients to the My Possible Self programme. My Possible Self is effective in enabling GPs to better understand patients’ needs, monitor patients while waiting referral to Improving Access to Psychological Therapies (IAPT) and for stable patients to monitor their condition.
     
  • Patients referred to My Possible Self are provided with a ‘token’ which they use to register their details on the online tool or app. Each token will last one year.
     
  • Patients complete questionnaires which direct them to the most appropriate modules where they are able to actively track their thoughts, feelings and progress. This data is automatically made visible to their GP.
     
  • GPs are able to track and monitor patients progress and use this data to inform the appropriate care going forward, which may be to continue with My Possible Self self-monitoring or referral to therapy.
How can My Possible Self benefit the NHS?
  • My Possible Self can be incorparated with existing pathways.
     
  • Enables rapid access to mental health services available to patients 24/7.
     
  • Assists in providing integrated mental health care, enabling the sharing of data across primary, secondary and community care.
     
  • Better informs decisions about patient care and enables GPs to make early intervention if a patient’s condition deteriorates.
     
  • Empowers patients to manage their own health and care.
     
  • Offers an additional approach to reach patients who have not engaged with primary care before.
     
  • Easily scalable across the wider NHS.

MPS Connect is based on two proven components:

1. The self-help app, My Possible Self, which is based on content that is clinically proven to reduce stress, anxiety and mild to moderate depression in eight weeks. It is listed at the NHS Apps Library and has been commissioned by the NHS-backed Good Thinking website. 

2. Remote monitoring and management of users via sister company Inhealthcare, a UK leader in digital health with more than 30 NHS commissioned services and backed by successful NICE evaluation.
Stage of Development:
Evaluation stage - Representative model or prototype system developed and can be effectively evaluated
WMAHSN priorities and themes addressed: 
Mental Health: recovery, crisis and prevention
Benefit to NHS:
  • Visibility of joined-up patient journey through primary care, IAPT and secondary care services via full interoperability with all major NHS systems
  • Ability to set thresholds for patient wellbeing and trigger alerts when these are breached as indicated by self-report questionnaires
  • Identify patient need and target resources to enable early intervention, reducing avoidable referrals
  • Send appointment reminders and receive confirmation
  • Increase capacity in IAPT, allowing providers to scale up services to meet national targets
  • Full interoperability with existing NHS systems

Benefit to WM population:
  • 24-7 access to self-help content based on tried-and-tested therapies
  • Increased self-awareness through innovative mood-tracking tool
  • Improving understanding of what to expect with IAPT
  • Confidence that mental health is being monitored
  • Ability to self-refer to IAPT services
Current and planned activity: 

We want to work with IAPT providers on the implementation and evaluation of MPS Connect to support users before, during and after IAPT in the Midlands. We would like help with patient recruitment and evaluation of data generated to demonstrate acceptability and efficacy of our service, especially in increasing engagement with IAPT services and reducing relapse.

The Five Year Forward View for Mental Health wants expanded access to digital services to enable more people to receive effective care and provide greater accessibility and choice; providers to deliver a more nuanced service with contact through digital media backed up by face-to-face interventions and commissioners to improve outcomes through low-cost and easily scalable interventions.

The NHS Long Term Plan wants to create straightforward digital access to NHS services, and help patients and their carers manage their health and use predictive techniques to support local health systems to plan care for populations.

Innovation 'Elevator Pitch':
Spring Active has developed an integrated digital and physical back pain coaching approach for the management of back pain.  We will drive improved efficiency of care for providers whilst reducing costs of delivery.
Overview of Innovation:
Spring Active has developed an integrated digital and physical back pain coaching approach for the management of back pain. Our treatment combines evidence-based clinical approaches with innovative internet and mobile platforms. This early intervention approach will result in reduced waiting times for patients, and enable patients to be in control of their care, having immediate access to self-management leading to improved compliance and improved outcomes. In turn, we will drive improved efficiency of care for providers whilst reducing costs of delivery.

HealthyBack Coach™ is a digital and physical “virtual” service that combines digital screening, HealthyBack™ workbook and remote video consultations with a qualified physiotherapist (Spring Active Back Coach).
 
Here’s how it works:
  • Following referral, Spring Active contact the patient immediately to arrange delivery of materials and consultations – All materials are provided digitally and all consultations are via remote video link.
  • A member of our Clinical Team (Physiotherapist) carries out the remote video assessment & consultations each week for 3 weeks.
  • By week 3 the patient has a recovery plan that’s right for them and the tools to ensure a full recovery.
  • All referrals are registered on digital outcomes in order to record and monitor their improvement over 5 years
This service is designed to improve access at scale, reduce waiting times and reduce costs for healthcare providers, by providing instant access to the expert help & advice needed for an efficient recovery from an episode of back pain.

The Spring Active programmes involve exercise and educational sessions, with an emphasis on working towards purposeful individualised goals and developing skills to improve back pain in the long term. In order to support long lasting improvements and functional gains the patient will also go through digital outcomes measures for 5 years.
 
Our programmes focus on self-management improvements through identifying unhelpful pain beliefs and behaviours, providing tailored exercises to improve movement and body awareness, psychological support and practical coping and problem-solving strategies.

Our programmes have been developed in line with Spinal Taskforce and NICE guidelines.
 
Stage of Development:
Close to market - Prototype near completion and final form may require additional validation/evaluation and all CE marking and regulatory requirements are in place
WMAHSN priorities and themes addressed: 
Wellness and prevention of illness / Digital health / Person centred care
Benefit to NHS:
Back pain is reported to be the largest cause of disability in the world. This has a huge impact, both on the economy with lost working days, and on the health systems trying to cope with demand leading to long waiting lists and high healthcare costs. Although the web is often the first port of call for people, with “back pain” the number one searched for complaint, web advice is patchy and often not evidence-based. It is estimated that those in chronic back pain consult their doctor up to five times more frequently than others according to the National Office of Statistics and that those with back pain have health care expenditures approximately 60% higher than individuals who do not suffer from back pain.

Our treatment combines evidence-based clinical approaches with innovative internet and mobile platforms. This will result in reduced waiting times and enable you to be in control of your care. Having immediate access to self-management leads to improved outcomes.
  • No waiting times – the patient has immediate access to evidence-based treatment.
  • An integrated digital and physical back pain coaching approach for the management of back pain – the flexibility of a digital format with the reassurance of a real professional healthcare provider.
  • Allows the patient to be in control of their care with a self-management approach.
  • Immediate access to self-management leading to improved compliance and improved outcomes.
  • Improved efficiency of care for providers whilst reducing costs of delivery.

Benefit to WM population:
As a West Midlands based SME, adoption of the HealthyBack Coach within the region would allow the company to grow and take on additional specialist staff. Our current forecast suggests the creation of 45 jobs over the next 5 years in software engineering, e-commerce agencies, HealthyBack physiotherapists and sales and marketing.

Reduction in travel for patients (reduces pressure on the region’s transport infrastructure) a reduction in pressure to the primary Care system.
Current and planned activity: 
Due to lack of progress within the NHS Spring Active is currently trialling and developing the HealthyBack Coach in 2 areas;
  1. Direct to consumer trial – this is providing the opportunity to gather user feedback and develop the approach to suit the patient
  2. Trials with large insurance companies to provide HealthyBack Coach direct to client company employees
Procurement / Adoption of: - Require assistance with marketing to CCGs and commissioners.   
Spring Active is keen to work with NHS to develop case studies in order to demonstrate financial benefits specific to the NHS and support the develop of care pathways for the management of back pain.
