Personal routes: the future of behavioural interventions
No one is the same, which means the road to change is different for everyone. Based on this, we started optimising existing behavioural interventions. The outcome? We call it the 'personal route'.
Two people with the same diagnosis may experience their symptoms completely differently. The way in which they deal with it may also vary from person to person.
We believe that care has the biggest effect when it ties in with someone’s personal needs. Minddistrict makes it possible to adapt care to a person's learning style, motivation, the nature of the symptoms and the seriousness of the complaints.

A new generation of interventions
When we at Minddistrict discuss 'interventions', we mean behavioural interventions, mostly supported by digital means. There are many behavioural interventions, especially in healthcare, and they are all very different. They mostly have one thing in common though: they were developed many years ago. Which is why they ignore one fundamental development: the mobile revolution of the past 10 years.
Consulting literature, healthcare professionals and many, many user cases, we started developing a new generation of interventions. All based on behavioural change techniques.
The smallest details in these new personal routes are aimed at behavioural change. And we're not just talking copy, images and videos. Colour compositions, shapes and notifications: all are aimed at effect.
A personal route starts at a person's complaints or request for help
Sometimes, you use a personal route for self-help or to bridge a waiting list. At other times your route entails treatment, guidance or aftercare. Personal routes are suitable for the entire patient journey, from intake to recovery.
Most people will know what to envision when we're talking 'interventions'. You use them when you want to realise change, or when you want to alter someone's train of thought. We can all agree on the fact it's a pretty broad term.
In healthcare the word 'intervention' is used widely, too. It's an intervention when a nurse moves a very ill patient to his or her other side. Same goes for the general practitioner, who advises someone to cut down on the sugar.
At Minddistrict, we specialise in behavioural interventions that can be used in somatic and mental health care. Or preventive, at home or in the workplace.
So what does it look like?
Clients use Minddistrict on their mobile phone
In the morning, Ralph completes a sleep diary. Later, he reads about thinking of positive events and he does a mindfulness exercise while on the go.
Professionals adapt components from the route and customise it
Ralph’s therapist gives him positive reinforcement. She adds relaxation exercises, because they may really benefit Ralph right now.
Family and friends can be part of the route
Ralph shares a few pages from his diary with a friend. His friend now understands Ralph better and will be able to support him. In his turn, Ralph finds it easier to ask his friend for help.
Want a demonstration?
The easiest way of discovering whether personal routes would fit in your organisation, is by trying them yourself!
Can I customise the modules?
Yes, the modules are extremely flexible, which means they are easy to customise for the client. Examples include adding and removing sessions or supplementing them with a diary or plan. The Minddistrict Content Management System (CMS) also allows you to develop your own modules or diaries.
