Norddjurs municipality in Denmark joins a successful back-to-work program supported by the Monsenso digital health solution

Norddjurs Municipality in the Central Jutland region joins the successful Return-to-Work program, facilitated by several partners including Empano, Sundinvest, Den Sociale Kapitalfond, AS3, PWC and supported by Monsenso’s digital health solution. From February 2022, Monsenso’s digital health solution will be deployed in Norddjurs Municipality to support individuals during their return-to-work process, while collecting real-world insights on outcomes.

The impact of COVID -19 on social care.
The disruption or shutdown of critical mental health services during the COVID -19 pandemic has led to the rapid adoption of technology-enabled care (TEC) in both health care and adult social care (ASC). Today, there is no doubt that digital technologies offer the potential to improve social care, from targeting resources where they are most needed to promote independence in the community through remote care and treatment support.

Commissioning beyond COVID -19
The adoption of technology-enabled care (TEC) also provides an opportunity to move towards a more person-centered and evidence-based model of commissioning that focuses on service delivery outcomes.

Three forward-thinking municipalities in Denmark implement an outcome-based back-to-work service provided by Empano and Monsenso

To date, two forward-thinking municipalities in Denmark (Guldborgsund and Slagelse) have implemented an outcome-based back-to-work service provided by Empano and Monsenso.

The back-to-work services are designed to help citizens with mental illness return to the labour market faster and consist of coping and motivational courses provided by Empano, offered in conjunction with the Monsenso digital health solution for remote treatment support and real wold data collection on outcomes to validate and demonstrate program effectiveness. 

Since February 2022, Norddjurs municipality in the Central Jutland region has also joined the successful program and more municipalities are expected to follow during the year.

Monsenso signs a new contract with Empano

Monsenso signs a new contract with Empano

Monsenso expands collaboration with Empano, a private provider of psychology and psychiatry services, signing a new contract to help citizens with stress return to work in the municipality of Slagelse.

Monsenso and Empano partnered up last year to help unemployed people get back to work faster. Together, Monsenso and Empano offer a solution for Danish municipalities to help unemployed people suffering from stress and depression return to work.
Following the successful implementation in the municipality of Guldborgssund, the services are now offered to more municipalities, starting in the municipality of Slagelse, Denmark.

Empano offers individual courses and group sessions to the employment sector in the municipalities and uses Monsenso’s digital health solution to collect self-reported data from service users to validate and demonstrate the program’s effectiveness.

The courses have a duration of 6-8 weeks each, after which new citizens are enrolled.

It is a preventative course that teaches strategies to reduce stress and promote mental health. Citizens are introduced to techniques that enable them to better cope with symptoms and challenges in everyday life and the job market, based on cognitive therapy, metacognitive therapy, and mindfulness.

“We are excited to expand our collaboration with Empano to help more people get back to work faster,” says CEO Thomas Lethenborg. “Mental health and unemployment are closely linked. While unemployment can cause stress which may have other negative consequences on people’s mental health, including depression, anxiety and lower self-esteem, a good mental health has shown to have a positive impact on employability, finding a job and staying in that job.”

New partership to help unemployed people get back into the labor force faster. Monsenso enters a partnership with Empano, a private player in psychology and psychiatry services. Together, Monsenso and Empano offer a solution for the Danish municipalities to support unemployed people suffering with stress and depression in their return to work process. Initially, the solution will be implemented in Guldborgssund Municipality, Denmark, in September 2020.

“In a situation with historically high unemployment, we are pleased to offer a solution that can help get more Danes back into the labor force faster. It’s always difficult to be outside the labor force, and even more so if you suffer from stress and depression. “Therefore, we are pleased to offer a solution to municipalities that can help unemployed people suffering with stress and depression get back to work” says CEO Thomas Lethenborg.

“The municipalities are facing a major task due to the increased unemployment we are seeing in the wake of Covid-19. The combination of our services in the psychology and psychiatry services, and Monsenso’s platform to support follow-up and data collection is unique in the market and we are convinced that the service can help municipalities to proactively help the larger group of unemployed ” says Director Camilla Stokholm Bjørkman from Empano.
