ATTENTION: Mental Health Scales and its updates are only available from the official iTunes App Store. Never agree to updating outside the store.
Its simple, intuitive interface (and security features) means that a client can be handed the iPhone or iPad to self-rate on a scale or perform the Clock Test while being observed, or while the practitioner performs other tasks. Scores are automatically tallied and past results are readily available to the clinician for comparison.
Test histories for any number of clients can be stored securely on the mobile device and results can be emailed or messaged back to the office computer, making the application ideal for working at more than one location or facility. Results can also be printed on an AirPrint compatible printer on the same Local Area Network as the device. A user specified alternate ID is used to identify the client in exported results - the client's name does not appear in the result.
The app is easy enough to use that a client could run it on their own device and use the email or messaging feature to send in results to the practitioner.
