Yes. There is no fee for therapists and their patients to use the Greenspace progress measurement platform (now or ever). Therapists have the option to subscribe to a Premium Account, which includes features such as customizable delivery schedules, additional types of assessments and a display of the therapist's aggregated statistics.
Therapists select the appropriate clinical, functional and therapeutic alliance assessments for each patient. The therapist then has a choice as to whether they would like the assigned assessments to be automatically delivered to the patient by email or sms on a recurring schedule or completed during sessions only. Patients don't need to download an app and and can easily complete the assessments on any device (phone, tablet, computer).
Yes. Greenspace gives therapists the option to have their patients complete their assessments in their office during a session.
No. You can complete an assessment with a new patient instantly, without requiring the patient to sign up for an account. If the patient is interested in receiving assessments outside of their session and viewing their own results, they will need to sign up for an account. This can be done at any time and doesn’t need to be done when they complete their first assessment.
Yes. Both therapists and patients can access the results through their Greenspace accounts. Patients being able to access and view their own results is important because it increases patient engagement, and progress measurement has been demonstrated by a number of studies to have a much larger impact when results are displayed to both the therapist and the patient.
The two most commonly assigned assessments are the PHQ-9 (Depression) and the BR-WAI (Therapeutic Alliance).
On average there are three assessments assigned to each patient on the platform.
Currently the program is only available in the Greater Toronto Area. We will be expanding to other geographic regions within the next several months.
