While the term digital therapeutic may sound futuristic, these therapies are already a reality. As this new category of medicine continues to be integrated across the healthcare ecosystem, digital therapeutics will increasingly influence the way healthcare is delivered and consumed across the world. Digital therapeutics (DTx) deliver evidence-based therapeutic interventions to patients that are driven by high quality software programs to prevent, manage, or treat a broad spectrum of physical, mental, and behavioral conditions.
DTA’s comprehensive industry report, “Digital Therapeutics: Combining Technology and Evidence-based Medicine to Transform Personalized Patient Care,” provides an overview of the DTx industry and establishes the definition of a digital therapeutic. Core principles and best practices related to the design, manufacture, clinical validation, and regulatory oversight of these products are also featured.
