CommonGround is a web-based application that helps people to organize their health information into a particular format, to which the treatment team can respond in an efficient, personalized and comprehensive way. (www.patdeegan.com/commonground). Common Ground was developed by Pat Deegan, Ph.D. who works at Dartmouth Psychiatric Research Center, and who has lived with psychosis and recovered from it. The description of CommonGround, its potential benefits, and especially its graphical illness-tracking module, are all very appealing. CommonGround has been in use for several years and appears to be backed up by a substantial amount of research (www.patdeegan.com/commonground/research). We are not listing CommonGround with the consumer-based products since it is usually purchased by institutions rather than individuals.
