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 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 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.”
