After 4 years of research and development, the eMEN partners finalised their e-mental health product development and implementation toolkit. This Toolkit guides you through the process of developing eMental Health products with implementation in routine practice in mind. It helps you to think about the product from different perspectives (e.g. technological, legal, users, designers, health care providers), and how it can meet imperative quality criteria with respect to its evidence-base, technical features, privacy/security, safety, and functionality.
The Toolkit consists of three phases: (1) development, (2) testing, and (3) implementation. In each phase you describe or define different parts of your product (e.g. theoretical underpinning, technical features, effectiveness, implementation plan). The toolkit contains links to tools and references that can support you in each phase. The Toolkit helps you to define your product and you can collate key information about your product in a product definition page that can easily be shared with others showing the quality of your product. It is also an excellent tool for preparing your CE conformity (if applicable to your e-mental health app).

The eMEN partners can support you with the implementation of this toolkit. For more information, please do not hesitate to contact us.
