Lifestyle-related chronic illnesses are increasing global epidemics, which affect hundreds of millions of people and millions more are at risk. Chronic conditions represent a tremendous burden for healthcare ecosystems. Digital therapeutics embedded in behaviour science are disrupting this space.

Digital Therapeutics are medical solutions that have strong clinical evidence on efficacy of the solution, have high-quality software, hold regulatory approvals, and tailor the business model towards reimbursement and payer clients. Much as drugs, they aim to prevent, manage, or treat a medical condition through medication-like prescription models. DTx could also deliver clinical decision support to healthcare providers, drive better engagement and adherence, and help patients embrace new healthier habits.

Tackling on a scalable level and cost-efficiently the gaps in care, DTx solutions focus on patients’ needs and offer personalized user experience for people with range of chronic and neurological illnesses that require continuous monitoring. The payment model of the DTx solutions in general includes PMPM (per member per month) model, licensing, and code-based reimbursement.

To profitably scale their solutions, leading DTx market players work directly with health systems, health plans and employers. They also form strategic partnerships with Pharma companies to bring solutions to market, and also gather RWD and evidence on patient behavior, adherence levels and effectiveness of drugs for Pharma.

The US is the leading DTx market with the largest investments while in Europe, Germany is the first country that implemented a standardized prescription and reimbursement process for digital health apps. DiGA opens the door to 73 million public health insured residents and provides a quality stamp for DTx.
