EP08 Adherence and Engagement with Digital Interventions

In this podcast, SilverCloud’s Digital Health Scientist, Dr Jorge E Palacios, speaks with Dr Ina Beintner, Chief Science Officer at MindDoc, and SilverCloud colleague and Digital Health Scientist, Angel Enrique. Ina’s background has been in e-mental health, and she is very passionate about improving adherence of interventions.

Engagement and adherence have become buzzwords but what do they actually mean in medical terms and what is the difference? While adherence refers to a patient following a treatment plan, engagement takes it a step further and implies actions, such as reading materials or taking actions to try to change behaviours. Our guest speakers explain what both terms mean in terms of digital mental health platforms and solutions and why it is so important to understand the concept of engagement.
