Monsenso signs a contract with Centre for Social Psychiatry and Substance Abuse in Aabenraa municipality, Denmark.

Monsenso signs a contract with Centre for Social Psychiatry and Substance Abuse in Aabenraa municipality, Denmark.

Monsenso signs a contract with the Centre for Social Psychiatry and Substance Abuse in the municipality of Aabenraa in Denmark. The Monsenso digital health solution will be integrated as part of the treatment of citizens living in supported housing to help reduce relapses and re-admissions.

To reduce relapses and re-admissions of citizens suffering from mental disorders and substance abuse, the Centre for Social Psychiatry in Aabenraa Municipality has decided to offer the Monsenso digital health solution as an integrated part of their services in supported housing.

The citizens will be provided with the Monsenso app to keep track of their well-being, symptoms, and medication intake through self-reported data, as well as their behaviour through sensor data collected on mobile phones, sleep mats and watches. The historical data is visualised and helps the citizens remember how they have been doing when they speak with the housing support staff and gain better insight into the behaviours that trigger their symptoms, empowering them to better manage their condition.

The housing support staff access the data via a web portal enabling them to see fluctuations in the mental state of the citizens, hereby offering the opportunity to predict relevant outcomes for mood disorders and reduce potential relapses and readmissions.

The Monsenso app also provides treatment support in the form of Tools & Challenges and Action Plans for coping strategies that citizens can use to overcome stress and abandonment related to daily tasks.

“We are very excited about this project because the solution helps individuals take a more active role in their recovery process. The data captured provides the individuals with insight on how their lifestyle affects their mental well-being, empowering them to make positive changes” says Henning Iversen, Head of Housing Services at Aabenraa Municipality.

“We are excited to see Monsenso digital health solution integrated into the care of citizens living in supported housing.” said Thomas Lethenborg, CEO of Monsenso. “We know that one of the most important components to reducing relapse and increasing mental wellbeing is having the tools to better manage your condition”.

Monsenso moves into a new disorder area with a new project covering Multiple Sclerosis

Monsenso moves into a new disorder area with a new project covering Multiple Sclerosis

Monsenso, leading provider of digital solutions for mental health, moves into a new disorder area with a project covering Multiple Sclerosis (MS). The project is part of the HedaX research project and is conducted jointly with the Danish Multiple Sclerosis Society

The aim of the project, led by Lasse Skovgaard from the Danish Multiple Sclerosis Society, is to explore whether data-driven insight from daily self-assessments can empower users to better manage their disease.

In Denmark, approximately 17.200 people have Multiple Sclerosis (MS), and worldwide there are 2.1 million people diagnosed with MS. MS is an autoimmune disease in which the body’s immune system (autoantibodies) begins to attack and destroy the body’s own nerve cells. MS is a progressive disorder that can affect different places in the central nervous system, why symptoms and disabilities are manifold. Due to the broad heterogeneity among the MS patients’ disease courses, it is difficult to personalise a treatment course for better outcomes.

The aim of the study, therefore, is to validate whether data-driven insight from daily self-assessments can empower users and serve as a tool for individual disease management.

Study participants will be provided with the Monsenso app to assess daily self-assessments of symptoms, lifestyle measures and quality of life. Through visualisation of the historical data, the users can gain better insight into the behaviours that trigger their symptoms, thereby empowering them to better manage their disease.

The project is part of the HedaX research project, funded by the Innovation Fund Denmark, which involves ten public and private partners working together to develop a digital platform to ensure health data is securely captured and shared between individuals, healthcare professionals and researchers. The HedaX-project initially covered cancer and bipolar patients but will now be extended to cover MS patients.

‘’The project with Monsenso offers an opportunity to work closely with a patient organisation and determine whether patients can manage their disease better through the use of a state-of-the-art patient-centred app. The Danish Multiple Sclerosis Society was chosen as a partner because they have a clear ambitious digital strategy’’ says Troels Bierman Mortensen, CEO of DataFair and Project Manager for the HedaX project.

“Multiple Sclerosis is a serious and disabling disease. We are therefore pleased if the Monsenso solution can help to improve future treatments,” says Thomas Lethenborg, CEO of Monsenso.

About the Danish Multiple Sclerosis Society

The Danish Multiple Sclerosis Society is a nationwide organisation with 48 local branches throughout the country and the Faroe Islands and over 60 years of experience in making a difference by leading the way in research, patient support and providing information on Multiple Sclerosis. The organisation counts more than 60,000 members and donors – including 12,000 members with MS which corresponds to 80 percent of all Danish patients with MS.

Six Aims of High Quality Healthcare (Infographic)

Six Aims of High Quality Healthcare (Infographic)

In 1998, the Quality Chasm series was launched by the Institute of Medicine which included an informative report about delivering high quality healthcare. The report was entitled  “Crossing the Quality Chasm: A New Health System for the 21st Century”.The strategies proposed in this report were to be used as an organizational model for a patient centered healthcare system, and to provide informative guidelines on how a healthcare delivery system can be redesigned to innovate and improve care. 

This informative report uses six primary aims to achieve and implement  high quality healthcare systems. Mobile Health solutions, such as our mHealth solution,  can meet all of those six aims.  See how below:
