What’s new about it?

It puts both patients and clinicians in the driving seat from the start. It comes ‘out of the box’ with no knowledge of the world but capable of intelligence.

We do not believe AI (Artificial Intelligence) is anywhere close to the nuanced capabilities of human experts. Instead, we use what we call Augmented Intelligence. Perdeca and the clinician augment each other’s intelligence and knowledge as a team. Any mental healthcare clinician can teach Perdeca by sharing their expertise with it. A very simple, fast and automated process that the clinician can start right away. No coding just text, images, voice, sounds, animated GIFs or whatever else the clinician wants to use to create interactive counselling sessions.

Each clinician is the source of the knowledge in Perdeca. This knowledge grows over time and is specific to the clinician. A mini clone if you like. So the clinician can rapidly (in a few minutes) create personalized or generic sessions and share the sessions as files just as rapidly. Any language written or spoken can be used, images, sounds and more can also be used as part of the session’s content.

For the patient, Perdeca monitors their progress and if they are stuck during the interactive session, it enables the patient to quickly search online for relevant information about the current question being asked. The patient can also request a suggestion from Perdeca (this is recorded in the analytics).

What’s proven about it?

Human mental healthcare experts provide their proven knowledge, not Perdeca. As mentioned, Perdeca does not arrive with a pre-configured database of knowledge or a claim to understand the human mind, emotions and actions. We have human experts who are far better positioned to provide that. Perdeca partners with the human expert, the clinician by organizing and augmenting the clinician’s expertise intelligently.

So the clinician is free to implement sessions using any of the various scientifically proven and accepted mental healthcare techniques such as CBT, DBT, ACT and RT. Perdeca then automatically creates short interactive sessions for the patient to interface with the clinician virtually.

How is it helpful?

The certified clinician’s knowledge and expertise are what the patient interacts with not an artificial knowledge-base. Perdeca helps by bringing in uniformity along with organizational and care delivery efficiency to the mental health-caring process. Thus, augmenting the human expertise, digitizing it and enabling a much greater number of patients to be supported by an individual practitioner.

How is privacy protected?

Account access details of the patient can be generated anonymously and shared privately between the clinician and the patient.
