AMCP Partnership Forum Digital Therapeutics: What are they and Where do they fit in Pharmacy and Medical Benefits?
Digital therapeutics with web and designed based applications are emerging as a means to treat conditions by engaging people to improve health and wellness. In some cases, these therapeutics are preventive to stop a disease or improve outcomes in certain chronic conditions including cancer, diabetes, and heart disease. Other areas for digital therapeutics have emerged for birth control and to manage opioid addiction. They typically focus on ways to modify a person’s environment or behavior to increase patient engagement, improve adherence to medications and possibly reduce hospitalizations or prevent other expensive health interventions. But where do these fit in terms of a pharmacy or a medical benefit for insurance coverage? This partnership forum will consider these important emerging issues to provide recommendations to inform this growing area.
AMCP Partnership Forums bring together industry experts to discuss key issues and make recommendations around the issue. These events are invitation only but sponsorship opportunities are available. For more information contact email@example.com.
