DBT smartphone app by Monsenso will be implemented by the end of August
Copenhagen, Denmark – 18 July 2017 Monsenso, a Danish developer in mobile health solutions for mental health, has announced that Datlinien, a private clinic in Denmark, will soon implement the Monsenso mHealth solution with an added Dialectical Behavioural Therapy (DBT) module.
DBT is an evidence-based treatment that is commonly used to treat Borderline Personality Disorder.
Online-based DBT solutions have been found to make treatment easier to manage for clinicians, by storing information in an easily accessible place through cloud technology.
A new DBT module was recently added to the Monsenso mHealth solution as part of the mDiary Study, a research project done in collaboration with several Danish partners. The Monsenso mHealth solution, which consists of a smartphone app for individuals and a web portal for clinicians, provides a reliable, efficient, and clinically-validated smartphone based approach to DBT.
Some of the key factors of DBT include skills training and self-monitoring, which have been administered traditionally through paper-based self-assessments, workbooks and diaries. The Monsenso DBT smartphone app helps optimise and organise this process, by putting self-assessments, self-monitoring, skills training, emotion rating, and synchronized clinician feedback into one convenient location – your smartphone.
Datlinien offers mental health services, with a special focus on DBT, to public and private institutions, and they provide DBT treatment for both group and individual therapy.
Thomas Lethenborg, CEO at Monsenso, said “This new DBT module was developed as part of the mDiary Study to complement the treatment of individuals undergoing DBT treatment. It was designed to modernise the traditionally used paper-based assessments and skills training, and to make it more intuitive.”
Dr. Shahram Elahi Panah, General Manager of Datlinien, said “By adopting this new technology, we want to raise the bar on the mental health services offered by private clinics in Denmark. The Monsenso DBT smartphone app makes data collection and skills training more fun and interactive, which is great for the patients because it increases compliance and engagement. On the other hand, it is also great for us, the clinicians, because we can visualise all the patient data more easily.”

Copenhagen, Denmark – 13 December 2016. Monsenso, an innovation leader in mobile health (mHealth) technology for mental health, announced today that Psykiatriresurs, a private practice clinic in Gothenburg, Sweden, will implement the Monsenso mHealth solution for depression treatment.
The private clinic, which offers psychological and neuropsychiatric services, provides mental health treatment to 600 individuals with depression, anxiety, personality disorders and ADHD. In addition to these patients, Psykiatriresurs will soon open a second clinic with a similar capacity, in Varberg, 80 km South of Gothenburg.
To start with, the mHealth solution for depression will be used by 250 patients, although Dr. Kristoffer Södersten, Director of the clinic, has plans to roll it out to all patients across both clinics.
“With this new technology, we want to raise the bar on the mental health treatment offered around the different private clinics in Sweden, and with the Monsenso mHealth solution we will be able to go a step further by reaching out to our patients when they need it the most. At Psykiatriresurs we are constantly looking to improve our patients’ experience, and our aim is to use the technology to improve and personalise even more of the treatments we currently provide to our patients,” said Dr. Södersten.
The mHealth solution for depression will be used by the clinicians to support the personalised treatment of individuals with this disorder. With the web portal, they will be able to identify the triggers and early-warning signs of all patients and schedule emergency consultations when needed.
Thomas Lethenborg, CEO at Monsenso, said “With the implementation of the Monsenso mHealth solution for depression, clinicians at Psykiatriresurs will have access to real-time patient monitoring and their patients’ historical data, which will help them make better decisions in regards to clinical treatment.”
Patients will use a smartphone app to collect sensor data and fill in routine self-assessments that reveal their current state of mind. The smartphone app also works as a self-management tool that allows patients to manage their symptoms.
Clinicians will use a web portal where they can access all the data collected by the patients’ smartphones, anytime, anywhere. The web portal enables clinicians to view relevant information related to each patient.
