As the world becomes more and more interconnected, people are looking to their medical records to figure out how they got diagnosed with the bipolar disorder.
But a new study suggests that the time is now.
A recent study published in the journal BMJ has found that a quick online medical history could identify people who have bipolar disorder even before they even take a blood test.
The study was led by Dr. Robert Kavcic, the Director of the National Institute of Mental Health.
Dr. Kavciic said in a statement:The National Institute on Aging has recently launched a Bipolar Disorders Assessment System, which aims to provide clinicians with a comprehensive toolkit to help patients understand the severity of their illness.
The Bipolar Diseases Assessment System will be used to help clinicians diagnose patients at the beginning of treatment, with the goal of providing clinicians with the most accurate and complete information possible about bipolar disorder, which has been classified as a complex illness.
The system will be expanded in the future.
Dr Kavchiis new study, which involved more than 300,000 people in the U.S., found that the faster the time a person took to answer questions online, the more likely they were to be diagnosed with bipolar disorder (BPD).
When asked if they had ever used a medical record to identify their bipolar disorder diagnosis, more than 90 percent of people in this study said yes.
However, only 28 percent of those surveyed said they had used the medical record as part of their screening to find out if they were diagnosed with BPD.
When asked to explain why they were not taking a medical history to help them diagnose their BPD, 45 percent of the people in Dr Kavczics study said they were “too busy” or “didn’t know enough” to answer.
When the study was repeated in a follow-up survey in the coming months, Dr Kapci said the number of people who were diagnosed BPD rose to 85 percent.
Dr Jana P. Brubaker, who co-authored the study with Dr Kaptein, said the study’s findings should be seen in the context of previous research.
“Our work suggests that if people have the opportunity to take a quick medical history and answer questions, they will be more likely to be identified with Bipolar disorder.
We believe that this information will provide clinicians and patients with the tools they need to understand their disorder and make the right choices,” Dr Brubakers said.
