Digital solutions for improved patient outcomes

uMore is empowing people to track and self-manage their mental well-being through self-reporting, insights, and personalised self-care activities. We incorporate techniques from cognitive behavioural therapy, acceptance and commitment therapy, mindfulness, and behavioural science.

We are in the early days of digital therapies, but the results are promising.

Depression symptom reduction

On average, patients experience a 54% decrease in depressive symptoms.

Anxiety symptom reduction

On average, patients experience a 41% reduction in anxiety symptoms.

The answer lies with behaviour science.

 

uMore uses the fundamentals of behavioural science to inspire behavioural change. With the mobile app, a patient can take control of their mental wellbeing so they can live their healthiest life.

The daily tracking feature of the application works as a visual cue for patient activity. Push notifications remind patients of the habit they want to improve. uMore also reminds patients when it’s time to track their wellbeing, notifying them that they need to take action.

Ready, steady, track! 

uMore is your patients digital companion that improves their habit building.

Every time they tap they release small amounts of dopamine, the powerful chemical that controls the brain’s pleasure centre, so each check-in feels like getting a pat on the back.

Behavioural scientists call this action-and-reward system the “habit loop” an essential element of strengthening habits. With uMore, your patients activities become positive habits.
