About this event

- Location Online
- Organised by Digital Health
Digital therapeutics (DTx) have been evolving for over a decade and promise to supplement or potentially replace some clinical therapies. Their potential value in facilitating significant benefits, such as meeting unmet patient needs, self-management of chronic conditions by patients, delivering treatment more affordably, reducing demands on clinician's time or being a non-pharmacological treatment.
Watch the pre-recorded version of this event for an up-to-date understanding of digital therapeutics and the opportunities to improve patient experience and outcomes, whilst delivering value for healthcare and supporting clinicians in providing care more effectively, safely and efficiently. It will also examine the regulatory landscape from the regulators and the experiences of innovators bringing solutions to the market, the latest designs, developments and deployment, and the potential influence and opportunities of DTx in their field of work.
During this event, you will:
- Understand the concept of digital therapeutics and fields in which technologies are emerging
- Learn from case studies of DTx use, the potential adaption of patient pathways and benefits to workflow
- Develop insight into DTx requirements, evidence base, regulation and reimbursement
- Learn how to consider the patient safety aspect of digital therapeutics
