Monsenso strengthens the addiction services in the municipality of Ikast-Brande
A new collaboration between the Danish healthtech company Monsenso and the municipality of Ikast-Brande will examine how Monsenso’s data-driven mhealth solution can be used as an integrated part of the addiction treatment in the municipality, across both alcohol and substance misuse.
The project will be running from January 2019 to January 2020 and primarily involve people in outpatient treatment. The aim is to evaluate the clinical and financial benefits of using the Monsenso Solution. This is relevant for clients receiving treatment and for clients who are part of post-treatment services, where it is crucial not to fall back into old and undesired habits.
- The Center for Rusmiddelbehandling in Ikast-Brande strives to enhance the quality of their services by implementing the newest technology. Addiction services are an interesting growth area for Monsenso, and we are convinced that implementing our solution will be beneficial to both clients and clinicians. Moreover, the collected data are opening up a number of exciting and innovative opportunities relating to addiction treatment, says Thomas Lethenborg, CEO of Monsenso ApS.
With help from the Monsenso solution and data that are being reported directly by the client, the clinicians in the municipality of Ikast-Brande will be able to personalise the treatment to fit each client’s needs, as they have knowledge of the client’s issues over time. It also allows clinicians to be more proactive and reach out to clients at the time they need help in order to avoid potential relapses.
- We are implementing this new technology in our addiction services to improve the quality of the treatment we can provide. At the same time, we get to be more pro-active and understand our clients better, which will profit both them and the entire municipality. The clinicians are motivated to try a different working method, so we look forward to getting started, says Mette Christensen, the Head of the Center for Rusmiddelbehandling.
