Leading Danish addiction treatment center, KABS, enhances treatment services with data-driven mobile health technology

Copenhagen, Denmark – 30 January 2019. The management of Copenhagen-based KABS acknowledges that there is a need to digitise parts of the treatment to both ease the burden of difficult and time consuming data collection and to offer people better, more proactive and personalised treatment. Therefore, Monsenso and KABS have joined forces to provide more effective, user-centered treatment by using mobile health technology to better support people struggling with addiction.

“Knowing about the individual’s well-being is crucial for setting up the best possible treatment. Gathering data solely through face-to-face interviews might often be inaccurate and time consuming, and the data may be biased by the individuals’ well-being and motivations during each interview session. We have decided to use the Monsenso solution, to improve our data collection using a digital platform for individuals to do self-assessments. By knowing more about the individuals, we are able to provide better treatment, while it is also an attempt to reach and attract the young people, who are in need of help.” says Rasmus Axelsson, Head of KABS.

The Monsenso solution will be implemented in a pilot project in the unit KABS Stjernevang with 10 therapists using the system. The pilot project includes both alcohol and substance abuse, as well as cases of comorbidity, where individuals also suffer from a mental illness. The mHealth solution combines data collection through self-assessments and questionnaires to provide the therapists with a detailed longitudinal view of the person’s wellbeing.

The Monsenso solution will be customised to complement KABS’ services in order to provide therapists with an overview of the individual’s illness progression, their symptoms and any medication compliance. The solution also notifies therapists and users when they display any illness related warning signs, enabling them to monitor each user remotely and to intervene at an early stage.

“We are looking forward to be working with KABS and the experienced team of therapists. We understand the very close relationship between mental health and addiction and are working closely with Rasmus and his Team to enhance the way alcohol and substance abuse treatment is delivered.” said Thomas Lethenborg, CEO of Monsenso.

Municipality of Ikast-Brande strengthens its addiction services with Monsenso

Municipality of Ikast-Brande strengthens its addiction services with Monsenso

Copenhagen, Denmark – 17 January 2019. Monsenso, a Danish healthtech company focused on mobile health solutions for mental health, is proud to announce our newest collaboration with the Center for Rusmiddelbehandling in the municipality of Ikast-Brande. The aim of the pilot project is to examine how the Monsenso mhealth solution can be used as an integrated part of the addiction treatment, across both alcohol and substance misuse.

The project, which will be running from January 2019 to January 2020, will primarily involve people in outpatient treatment. This is the first step in implementing the solution more broadly throughout the center’s services, widening the scope and population that they can reach, and ultimately benefitting the people living in the municipality.

The aim of the project is to evaluate the clinical and financial benefits of using the Monsenso Solution. This is relevant for clients currently receiving treatment and for clients who have completed their treatment and are part of the post-treatment service, where it is crucial not to fall back into old and undesired habits.

With the help of the Monsenso solution and the data that are being reported directly by the client, the clinician will be able to personalise the treatment to fit each client’s needs, as they have knowledge of the client’s issues over time. It also allows for clinicians to be more proactive and reach out to clients at the time they need help in order to avoid potential relapses.

Thomas Lethenborg, CEO of Monsenso ApS, says: “The Center for Rusmiddelbehandling in Ikast-Brande strives to enhance the quality of their services by implementing the newest technology. Addiction services are an interesting growth area for Monsenso, and we are convinced that implementing our solution will be beneficial to both clients and clinicians. Moreover, the collected data are opening up a number of exciting and innovative opportunities relating to addiction treatment.”

Mette Christensen, the Head of the Center for Rusmiddelbehandling, says: “We are implementing this new technology in our addiction services to improve the quality of the treatment we can provide. At the same time, we get to be more pro-active and understand our clients better, which will profit both them and the entire municipality. The clinicians are motivated to try a different working method, so we look forward to getting started”.
