Treatment trajectory

Make the complex psychotherapy process transparent and manageable. The treatment trajectories present all relevant interactions with your client in a clear and chronological order. The conceptualisation of a treatment trajectory reflects how therapy of the future will take shape via various channels, and will extend the range of the treatment from the therapy practice to the living room of the client. A trajectory can contain numerous types of treatment activities: face-to-face contact, online sessions, consultations, self-help tools, notes, and more.

Trajectory-based approach

The trajectory visualises the sequential steps followed during therapy. The visualisation offers both you and your clients a holistic view of the entire treatment process, with meaningful activities marked with separate icons. These icons clearly indicate how the individual care path is taking shape and evolving:

  • Session: face-to-face or online contact with therapist and client(system)

  • Survey: online feedback and psychodiagnostics

  • Sync: supervision, consultations with affiliated care providers

  • Blended help: digital materials such as documentation, audiovisuals, digital exercises, self-registration,  that are made available to the client, supporting the regular treatment offering

Notes

In every step of a trajectory, there is the ability to add notes that further describe the action that took place. In this way, the treatment trajectory can be fully documented. All notes will automatically be bundled in a summary report which can be downloaded or printed.

For deontological reasons, it's of utmost importance that therapists can store private notes that won't be accessible by the client, and that will never be accessible by colleagues. In QIT online you have the ability to 'lock' the notes that can only be used for personal use. Locking notes is possible for every interaction type within a trajectory.

Locked notes are never accessible when you share a client or if you transfer the client to another therapist.

Unlocked notes are accessible in the case of shared or transferred files. 

Online feedback

By systematically collecting feedback, the quality of therapy is optimized. Monitoring does not replace psychotherapy. Therapeutic contact in the here-and-now remains the main focus. But research and clinical experience have shown that monitoring improves therapeutic contact by: allowing clients to fully participate, contributing to the effectiveness and targeting of therapy.

Questionnaires:

QIT online has an extensive library of more than 100 scientifically-proven questionnaires that can be used with clients. A clear catalogue gives you more explanation about focus, target group, number of items, and so on of each questionnaire. From an individual's record you have direct access to the online library and can easily select and add questionnaires.

You can find a full overview on this page.

If you don't find the questionnaire of your choice in the library or you want to design your own questionnaire, no problem! We can look at how your questionnaire can be implemented in QIT online.

Reports:

Your client's answers are captured in real-time in a well-arranged feedback report. It immediately gives you the right information about crucial evolutions and important points for attention. Scores are automatically calculated and interpreted by comparing them with the reference group. A scatter table or evolution chart provides more insight into the process flow. It helps you and your client stay attuned and adjust the process if necessary.

At the organizational level, overview reports can be generated that map the aggregated data for multiple clients and caretakers. A selection can be made according to certain parameters: questionnaire, number of sessions, length of therapy and so on.

Standard trajectories

QIT online provides various, ready-to-use, standard trajectories for specific clinical settings and target groups. These can be created for a client and then subsequently customized. These trajectories consist of sequences of process and effect measurements in which clinical relevance, user-friendliness and scientificity are accurately balanced. They are based on the results of years of research and continuous exchange with the most important stakeholders (clients and caretakers) in clinical practice.

Trajectories can be adjusted manually by the care provider depending on the specific client or clinical setting. Programmed questionnaires can be omitted and new questionnaires added.

Customized trajectories can be developed at an organizational level, in collaboration with our team.​

We currently foresee the following standard trajectories:

Tailored trajectories

The standard trajectory applications have the same generic structure: they gather feedback about common effective factors in any treatment. Quantitative feedback (including scores) and  qualitative feedback (including free answers) are combined to gain a rich insight into the therapeutic process. Content, design and functionality of these applications can be adjusted to a specific target group and clinical setting. Adjustments can also be made manually by the caretaker involved, by omitting or adding questionnaires and by varying the frequency of sending them out. 

Online feedback benefits both therapist and client. 

"It allows both the therapist and the client to reflect more on their experience of the session. It helps the therapist to make timely adjustments where necessary and the client to discuss difficult themes more"
