Clinically-Validated Digital Therapeutics:
Innovations in Scientific Discovery, Clinical Applications, and Global Deployment
A Digital Health Summit hosted by
the Center for Technology and Behavioral Health
October 25, 2023 | 8:00am - 6:30pm | Hanover Inn Dartmouth, Hanover, NH
Digital therapeutics – clinical-grade software used to prevent, treat, or manage a medical disorder or disease - are redefining the future of healthcare. They greatly improve access to care, quality of care, and treatment outcomes, while reducing costs for a wide array of clinical populations.
In recent years, we have experienced a surge in demand for remote models of healthcare, exponential growth in the digital health industry, a growing array of models of deploying digital therapeutics and an evolving payor landscape.
This Summit will provide an overview of innovations in scientific discovery, clinical applications and global deployment of digital therapeutics.
It will highlight the perspectives of individuals from diverse sectors - including researchers, healthcare providers and administrators, regulators, payors, and investors, as well as the digital health industry and global pharma engaged in building digital health formularies.
The goal is for this dialogue to help shape a vision for the future of how the most effective and engaging digital therapeutics can be accessible to people all over the globe.
