PCMIS to support NHS England - Digitally Enabled Therapy Assessment

PCMIS will work alongside NHSE and NICE to assess the impact of digitally enabled therapies in IAPT services.


As a trusted, long-term partner of NHS England, PCMIS has been asked to assist with the assessment of digital therapy products, for use in NHS IAPT services by 2020. The aim being to help expand provision of psychological therapies, as well as improving access to digital services as set out in the Five Year Forward View for Mental Health.

Digitally enabled therapy is psychological therapy that is provided online or through mobile applications, with the support of a therapist. There is evidence to show that these therapies can achieve comparable outcomes to face-to-face therapy, when the same therapy content is delivered in an online format which allows much of the learning to be achieved through patient self-study, reinforced and supported by a suitably trained therapist. Evidence also suggests that many people prefer to access therapy in this way.

For IAPT Services

NHS England is currently seeking services to take part in the assessment. If you are an IAPT service interested in taking part, you can find more information on the project, including how to apply, here.

For Developers

Nice is currently seeking submissions from developers who want their product assessed for the programme. If you are the developer of a product suitable for the programme, you can find out more here.
