Digital Therapeutics (DTx) are software-enabled preventative healthcare solutions that create an immersive experience to monitor physical and mental medical conditions from personally connected devices. DTx is considered digital medicine, where the digital methods used to help patients must produce positive clinical outcomes that medical evaluations and standards support.
AI/ML and natural language processing (NLP) power DTx to manage behavioral, psychological, and medical treatment programs at home for better health outcomes. Patient's using DTx programs receive advanced personalized care with routine clinical observations from healthcare teams that access medical data from digital tools like phone apps, wearable and non-wearable medical devices, and smartwatches.
To receive timely diagnostics, providers can track real-time updates on health conditions and use chat applications to provide medical feedback and offer health-management tips for better clinical outcomes. Providers can observe psychological and physiological data that affect the patient's condition and use the insights to optimize treatment programs.
The tools and methods used in DTx are prescribed by healthcare experts using clinical standards and are evaluated with regulatory procedures to ensure patient safety when using new healthcare technologies. DTx services are set up for secure communication and allow patients to engage in private and convenient therapies.
Patients gain control over their healthcare with the help of software applications that use virtual reality and the Internet of Things. DTx used these tools to customize care plans to the patient's exact needs, helping build self-management techniques that can lead to positive health outcomes.
DTx helps a range of healthcare issues that require consistent monitoring – obesity, ADHD, depression, eating disorders, type 2 diabetes, and various medical conditions like heart failure – and can be used in addition to in-office physician care. Remotely deployed cognitive therapy techniques help patients make lifestyle changes to alter behaviors that lead to poor diet and drug usage, creating mental health solutions that are personal, interactive, and timely.
