What is Digital Therapy?

Digital therapeutics (DTx), a subset of digital health, is a health discipline and treatment option that deliver evidence-based therapeutic interventions to patients that are driven by high-quality software programs to prevent, manage, or treat a medical disorder or disease. The treatment relies on behavioral and lifestyle changes usually spurred by a collection of digital impetuses. They are used independently or in concert with medications, devices, or other therapies to optimize patient care and health outcomes. Because of the digital nature of the methodology, data can be collected and analyzed as both a progress report and a preventative measure. DTx products incorporate advanced technology best practices relating to design, clinical validation, usability, and data security. They are reviewed and cleared or approved by regulatory bodies as required to support product claims regarding risk, efficacy, and intended use. Treatments are being developed for the prevention and management of a wide variety of diseases and conditions.
