Mission

The European project E-COMPARED conducts comparative effectiveness research in different mental care settings on the (cost-) effectiveness of blended internet-based treatment for depression in comparison with standard care.  Read more about us –>

Goals

  • Evaluate EU mental health policies/guidelines for standard and internet-based care for depression in specialized care settings in countries with different health care systems and access levels of standard and internet-based care
  • Compare clinical efficacy and cost-effectiveness of blended internet-based treatment and treatment as usual for depression within controlled research settings
  • Predict which patient groups could benefit from internet-based treatment vs. standard treatment by modeling patient characteristics
  • Develop evidence based recommendations on how internet-based depression treatment can be cost-effectively integrated into routine specialized care systems for depression in EU mental health care systems.
  • Develop a business case to ensure structural implementation of these services
