ClinTouch is an app for mobile devices that helps users keep track of their psychotic symptoms. By asking users to rate their experience several times a day, ClinTouch provides real-time illness management solutions. Users have the opportunity to draw connections between triggers and symptoms, as well as get assistance in remembering to take medications. ClinTouch also tracks users over time so that early signs of relapse can be recognized sooner, enabling them to seek additional support and intervention.
