Ur abstract: "Internet-delivered Cognitive Behavior Therapy (ICBT) is efficacious for a number of psychiatric disorders and can be successfully implemented in routine psychiatric care. Still, only about half of patients experience a good enough treatment outcome. Using data from the early part of treatment to identify patients with high risk of not benefitting from it, and target them with additional resources to prevent the predicted failure is a potential way forward. We call this an Adaptive Treatment Strategy, and a very important part of it is the ability to predict the outcome for a specific patient."
