ThriveSync is an Apple app and web-based program created to provide an innovative tool to increase communication between users and their doctors. ThriveSync combines a comprehensive symptom tracker with the ability to send messages and updates to user-designated care providers, sponsors, or other personal supports. Users complete a short “checkin” every day in which they enter information about their mood and functioning. This data is stored and compiled into reports that can be used by both users and their supports to recognize patterns, progress, and signs of trouble. ThriveSync can also use this data to send automatic notifications when the user is in crisis or at risk for crisis. Additionally, the app combines “gamification” to encourage users to regularly complete their checkins. Available for both individual users and for mental health providers and organizations, ThriveSync may be a useful adjunct to traditional treatments and can help users manage their mental health and recovery.
