The transfer from inpatient care to everyday routines is a critical stage for many patients, since persisting symptoms, compromised capacities and insufficient treatment options are available.

Within cooperation projects of the Institute for Community Medicine and the Department of Psychiatry and Psychotherapy telemedical care concepts for patients with psychiatric disorders are developed and examined with controlled randomized trials. Our aim is to investigate, if participants with psychiatric disorders profit by regular telephone calls and text messages. A first successful project (van den Berg et al., 2015) was already implemented as standard care treatment.

With the development of telemedical care concepts, we are able to offer an innovative and modern treatment for patients with psychiatric disorders.
