If you are a healthcare administrator, Dr. Vincent’s online program has been in use with adult outpatients in Winnipeg, Canada since 2006. With demonstrated effectiveness in a clinical setting, the program has been shown to significantly reduce healthcare costs. At the teaching hospital where Dr. Vincent works, this online program is the first line of intervention in a stepped care model for those with chronic insomnia. Once individuals complete the online program, only 50% go on to require more services. The inclusion of the online program has had significant impact upon the numbers of individuals interested in proceeding to direct treatment in group format. Dr. Vincent’s online program received a national award (Leading Practice) by Accreditation Canada in 2010.
