Vinfen

Innovation Award

By combining innovative healthcare tech and clinical expertise, Vinfen has developed a smartphone application which can help young adults with Serious Mental Illness manage their health needs.

About

In partnership with healthcare IT company Wellframe, Vinfen developed a Smartphone application that combines Wellframe’s innovative healthcare platform with Vinfen’s clinical content to help young adults with Serious Mental Illness (SMI) manage their health. The app is designed to educate and engage the young adults and reinforce the coaching done by staff around self awareness, self regulation and self management.

The app has three components:

  1. Personalized daily schedule that includes medication reminders, questions on emotional and mental status, an exercise log, clinical tools and health related videos and articles
  2. Personalized ‘tool box’ that contains the young adults’ goals, their strengths and their most effective coping strategies and problem solving techniques
  3. Content library that provides articles, video and audio links to a variety of key topics such as nutrition, safe sex, and personal safety

Through a desktop application on the back end of the app, Vinfen staff are able to monitor adherence to the app, utilization of the daily schedule, initiate and receive communications and assess the most frequently accessed content.
