Comments by Researchers on Sleepfix App.
The app provides insomniacs with sleep therapy which helps in gradually educating them to spend more time in bed asleep than awake.
?There have been two systematic reviews that compare face-to-face and digital therapy, and the clinical outcomes are nearly identical?. He added that ?Patient drop-off is also pretty similar across the two.?
Now, with the help of an SHP grant, he’s working with primary care doctors, pharmacists, and nurses to integrate the app into their daily practices.
?We’re looking into whether primary care providers can deliver the app and whether it’s something. They’d consider adding to their arsenal of therapy options in the future,? he said.
We believe that if a patient is told to use the app by a trusted health expert. They are more likely to try it and stick with it. If other health professionals tell them or if they take a self-help approach.?
