Digital Therapeutics Resources
The role of digital therapeutics, software that delivers clinical benefits and prevents, manages, and treats medical conditions, has evolved in the past few years. These products may be used independently or in tandem with other therapies to optimize clinical outcomes for patients and close gaps in care. Further, patients can self-manage these therapies, or they can be managed under the direction of a clinician. As innovative therapies are introduced into the market, challenges with developing evidence-based coverage criteria and tracking utilization have been identified.
These AMCP, AMCP Learn, and Journal of Managed Care + Specialty Pharmacy resources can help payers better evaluate, cover, and implement digital therapeutics.
