Monsenso signs new contract with Psychiatric Centre of Copenhagen

Monsenso signs a new contract with the Psychiatric Centre of Copenhagen. The Monsenso digital health solution will be used to collect real-world data in the precision medicine research project “PRECISE”. 

The research project is led by Professor Michael E. Benros, head of research, Biological and Precision Psychiatry at the Copenhagen Research Centre for Mental Health at Copenhagen University Hospital and covers 100 patients with affective disorders.

Precision psychiatry initiative (PRECISE)

The purpose of the “PRECISE” study is to identify biological causes of psychiatric illnesses to identify objective markers for severe psychiatric illnesses by integrating big data from national registries and biobanks into detailed clinical data to improve clinical decision-making and treatment response. Currently, treatment options for mental illness are determined by a “one-size-fits-all” approach, resulting in an unacceptably large proportion of non-responding patients. Collecting and leveraging real-world data may enable more accurate diagnostics, prevention, and new treatment strategies. 

Real world-data collection on self-reported and behavioural data

The Monsenso digital health solution will be used to collect data on patient-reported outcomes through clinical questionnaires and daily self-assessments, as well as behavioural data from wearables. In addition, the patients will be offered in-app study information and can receive reminders about medication and consultations with their clinician.

 “We are pleased to expand our collaboration with the Psychiatric Centre of Copenhagen and proud to be contributing to the PRECISE project,” says Thomas Lethenborg, CEO of Monsenso. “Mental illness is the biggest disease burden in society in the 2020s. To reduce the burden, it is critical to leverage data to diagnose and monitor mental disorders correctly and to give the right treatment to the right patients. We are happy that the Monsenso solution can contribute to that.

Maria Hjorth is proposed to join the board of Monsenso as chairman

Monsenso today announces that the board of Directors proposes Maria Hjorth to be elected for the board at the General Assembly on April 14th, 2021.

Monsenso – a leading provider of digital health solutions for mental health – plans to further strengthen the board by nominating a new professional board member with strong qualifications and competencies to support the company’s growth journey: Maria Hjorth, CEO at VP Securities A/S

The new board plans to constitute itself with Maria Hjorth as the Chairman and Jakob Bardram as the Vice Chairman following the ordinary Annual General Meeting on April 14, 2021, where Jukka Pertola is expected to resign as the Chairman.

The nomination of Maria Hjorth follows a change in the board in January, where Peter Høngaard Andensen and Jacob Hahn Michelsen were elected with the aim to strengthen the competences and diversity of the board.

Jukka Pertola commented: ”It is sad to pass on the chairmanship, but I have to do so to comply with demands related to good corporate governance. On the other hand, I am very pleased that with Maria Hjorth and the changes made in January, we have a competent and experienced board that is well positioned to help Monsenso reach the next level. Jacob Hahn Michelsen and Peter Høngaard Andersen brought extensive experience in pharma- and health-related software, medical applications, science and research, pharmaceuticals, neurology, innovation and funding. Maria Hjorth’s experiences from top management, financial businesses, investor relations and M&A is a great supplement to the rest of the board”.
