How To Use Precision Guided Care

Clinicians use the website precisionguidedcare.com to signup, setup patients and review patient results. Patients respond on a smartphone or mobile device app. Patients can also use precisionguidedcare.com, when this is more convenient.

Clinicians signup at precisionguidedcare.com. Click on the Free Signup link at the top of the page and complete all fields on the two signup pages. Then set up the patient by clicking Patients and then Add New Patient. Assign the patient a user ID and password and add first and last names. All other fields are optional.

To add daily monitoring questions, click Membership (under patient’s name). Select Clinical, then Monitoring, then Edit Check in questions and then Add. Note questions are organized by category, e.g. depression, anxiety, pain, etc. This makes it easier to find and add questions.¬†Click Edit Check-In Questions. Select a question from dropdown list. Today’s date and a month later will appear as start and end dates. You can edit these if you wish. Click Add. Add additional questions up to maximum of four.

You can also create your own questions. Select Monitoring in the white area above the patient name. Click Manage Monitoring Questions. Enter your item and choose response options (yes/no or almost never/almost always) and add. You can edit or delete items that you have entered, but you cannot edit or delete system items.

The patient needs to download the Carepaths app to their smartphone or mobile device from the Google Play Store or the Apple Store. Then the patient can login with the user ID and password you assigned. The app has links for Weekly Tracking and New Daily Check In. The patient should select and complete New Daily Check In and then select and complete Weekly Tracking. The weekly tracking uses the PHQ 9 for Depression and GAD 7 for Anxiety as the default assessment package. (These are the only measures available initially but more measures will be coming shortly.) Results are displayed graphically and in a chart

Once patients have completed the initial assessments they will begin receiving reminders on their phones to complete followup assessments. Reminders go out at 6PM eastern time (5PM Central, 4PM Rocky Mountain and 3PM Pacific). Reminders for daily assessments go out 1 day after the last completed assessment. Reminders for weekly assessments go out 7 days after the last completed assessment.

N.B. you can enable/disable notifications for specific patients and patients can opt out as well.

Clinician can view results by going into patient’s record, selecting Clinical from the dropdown under the patient’s name and then selecting Monitoring.

Here are representative daily monitoring and weekly progress tracking graphs:
