MHealth solution enables information-sharing among patients, carers and clinicians

Copenhagen, Denmark – 15 March 2016.  Monsenso ApS, an innovation leader in mobile health (mHealth) solutions for mental health, announced today the development of a triple-loop mHealth solution that enables information-sharing between patients, carers and clinicians to support the treatment of 1,000 individuals suffering from schizophrenia.

The mHealth solution, designed and developed by Monsenso, will provide healthcare professionals and family caregivers with access to the patient’s information.

Patients will be encouraged by their care providers to download the Monsenso smartphone app that will allow them to invite their care providers and family caregivers to access their data.

The smartphone app will be used to fill in routine self-assessments that reveal their current state of mind, and to collect sensor data.  It can also be used as a self-management tool that allows patients to manage their symptoms and the behaviours that trigger those symptoms.

Once invited by the patient, a family caregiver will be able to use a similar app to access the patient’s aggregated data and fill in the routine assessments evaluating the patient’s state of mind.

Healthcare professionals will use a web portal where they can access all the data collected by the patients’ and caregivers’ smartphones anytime, anywhere. The web portal enables clinicians to view relevant information related to each patient.

In relation to the development of the triple-loop solution, Thomas Lethenborg, CEO at Monsenso, commented. “We are approaching treatment in a way that has never been done before. There are currently a few mHealth solutions that offer a double-loop treatment model for patients and care providers. However, Monsenso will be the first company ever to develop and implement an mHealth platform that involves patients, care providers and family caregivers in the treatment of a mental illness. The caregiver module, which is currently under development, will be ready to be rolled out in Q3 2016, and will initially be used for two years.”
