The documentation of patient treatments is a crucial but unloved part of psychotherapy, because it is time-consuming and error-prone due to an ineffective combination of analogue and digital media. Progress notes are usually hand-written and once official documents are requested, piles of paper documents are gone through and assembled to digital files. We developed the interactive documentation system Tele-Board MED, which allows patient and care provider to jointly take notes and freely structure them on a whiteboard-inspired graphical user interface. We found that Tele-Board MED increases the patient’s engagement in treatments. A second goal is to increase the efficiency and correctness of medical documentation, which is a matter of ongoing research. Generally, documentation panels in Tele-Board MED replace paper sheets with handwritten therapy notes. As a next step, we want to close the gap between documentation panels and clinical documents. In particular, discharge letters and medical reports shall be created semi-automatically from Tele-Board MED data.
