TCApp is already used by 800 patients with eating disorders
TCApp is a HealthApp product designed for accompanying the patient within an Eating Disorder Therapy (like Nervous Anorexia, Bulimia or Binge eating).
Currently the most accepted and reliable therapy to treat this type of mental disorders is a cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT). This kind of therapy demands to register, typically in paper, the thoughts, feelings and behavior that the patients has throughout the day for each day until the next visit with the therapist. This information is used to analyze the evolution of the patient and to carry on the future treatment.
However, it is very common that the patients (in most cases teenagers) end up not filling out the forms because they don't bring it along with them all the time or just because it is kind of boring. This fact is clearly detrimental to the CBT and obstructs the right evolution of the patient. The mobile application TCApp allows an easy, dynamic and more fun way to register this kind of information by using a supportive link between the patients and their clinicians.
