Both big pharma and device companies have taken notice of digital therapeutics' potential. Here, we explore 22 innovative digital therapeutics startups working on everything from diabetes management to mental health.
Digital therapeutics — software-based disease management solutions, often with a mobile app component — are becoming more prominent in healthcare.
Diabetes, which is extremely common in the US, is an especially appealing target for this treatment approach, since managing the disease is so closely tied to behavior. Digital tools that help promote healthier behavior could limit diabetes’ impact or potentially, reverse it altogether.
Diabetes management software company Livongo‘s $105M Series E financing this month is the latest indication of a growing interest in this space.
