Taking Meds Out of the Bottle & Onto the Screen
Johnny has ADHD, but his system can’t tolerate stimulants. Joan is struggling with her addiction, but medicine isn’t helping. Bill has diabetes, but isn’t able to maintain the proper insulin dosage as he ages. These people have one thing in common: there is no ideal way for them to manage their conditions using prescription drugs. Enter Digital Therapeutics. These non-drug treatments may include tools like cognitive behavior therapy, medication dosing, symptom and lifestyle management, to provide patients with FDA-approved, clinically proven digital care. Digital prescriptions (apps, chats, videos, sensors, etc.) provide patients with highly personalized, value-based care that improves outcomes and helps providers gain insight, follow best practices, and extend care to more people.
