Region of Southern Denmark

Partner description

The Region of Southern Denmark (RSD) has 1.2 million inhabitants and four hospital units running 18 hospitals. The Region collaborates closely with 800 GPs, and the 22 municipalities that are responsible for preventative services, rehabilitation, and home care. All hospitals in RSD have implemented telemedicine services and the level of electronic communication is very high.

The Centre for Innovative Medical Technology (CIMT) is a joint research and innovation centre for Odense University Hospital (OUH) and University of Southern Denmark (SDU), and part of the Department for Clinical research. The centre is very active in research and innovation projects at a European level, often in the leading role and with a focus on communication. These European projects all revolve around healthcare innovation and technology, including eHealth, eMental health, telemedicine, infrastructure, and standardisation.

The Mental Health Services in the Region are embedded in secondary care and offer assessment, diagnosis, and treatment of citizens with serious mental disorders in close and binding collaboration with the practice sector, the municipalities, and the somatic healthcare service in the Region. The regional Centre for Telepsychiatry opened in Odense in November 2013 as the first of its kind, not only in the region, but in the country. The centre carries out a number of ongoing projects in the field of 'telepsychiatry' – delivering psychiatric treatment and expertise at a distance. The projects include telemedicine treatment for young people suffering from depression, telecommunication between citizen/patient, general practitioner, and the psychiatric hospital, as well as specialised assistance between doctors and experts from one department to another using telecommunication.


Service description

In the Region of Southern Denmark, a dedicated clinic for iCBT was established in 2014. The clinic is called “Internetpsykiatrien” (the Clinic for Internet-psychiatry) and is situated in the Centre for Telepsychiatry. The patient groups targeted by the clinic comprise persons suffering from mild to moderate levels of anxiety and depression. Patients are referred by self-referral. The service is currently free of charge for the patients. The clinic is staffed with six clinical psychologists (3 FTE’s) and treats approximately 200 patients per year.

The primary original objective for implementing iCBT was based on rapidly rising costs of depression treatment. By implementing iCBT, it was hoped that more patients could be treated for the same financial resources, hence hopefully levelling the rise in expenses. Secondly, it was hoped that more people with untreated depression would get access to treatment. Currently, the service has operated for approximately three years and it is now the objective to scale up to cover all regions of Denmark making it a nation-wide service.
