Our first software tool bespoke to psychiatry. With Thalamos Assess you can complete, store and share the most used Mental Health Act Assessment Forms. You can save a record of assessments where a form wasn’t completed, keep a note of your independent work and keep a digital version of your paper notes.
Thalamos Assess is Encrypted, Secure and Auditable giving you peace of mind and more time with service users.
Complete Mental Health Act assessment forms across any device, save a copy for your records and securely share them with the relevant second doctor, AMHP or Mental Health Act Office helping to save time and reduce errors.
Concerned about keeping track of who you’ve seen in your independent work? Keep a secure record of assessments where a form wasn’t completed.
All paper notes should be kept securely. Although a filing cabinet at home isn’t always practical. You can keep a record of your paper notes, or forms not yet supported on Thalamos Assess.
Clincians are facing an increasing number of different systems and log-in’s, which can be confusing. That’s why we’ve designed Thalamos to be as simple to use and intuative as possible.
Of all our feedback metric’s we keep the closest eye on ease of use. This graph was the feedback from 1st time users across four SOAD conferences in March 2020.
Our software was developed through personal experience, focus group research and consultation with our clinical steering group. Our objective is to support the thousands of UK psychiatrists who work outside of a clinical setting.
