Research shows it’s just easier to diagnose and treat mental disorders and cognitive disabilities out in the world, not in a hospital. But having an entire medical staff follow every patient simply isn’t practical.
For many treatments to be successful, they need to be timely. Having to take your phone out of your pocket, unlock it, and open an app discourages use and delays response.
Apps like sanvello and braindoc have some of the lowest app store reviews. Customers complain about flaky operation when connection isn’t great, and complicated user interface.
The majority of mental health apps don’t comply with industry standard privacy regulations.
Cognitive disabilities that affect our ability to detect salience, meaning to decern what’s important in a conversation or visual, can be really debilitating. With new technologies it seems like there’s a great opportunity to fix this but I don’t see anyone making that.
