The Digital Therapeutics Alliance represents the healthcare industry's leading manufacturers of clinically validated digital therapeutic (DTx) solutions. DTA members and partners – including patients, healthcare providers, payers, academic institutions, technology organizations, and pharmaceutical manufacturers – collaborate to enhance patient outcomes through assessing the value and impact of DTx solutions in clinical practice, constructing industry and regulatory frameworks, and encouraging data-driven integration and utilization of DTx solutions across the healthcare industry.
Digital therapeutics are clinically-validated solutions that may be used as standalone interventions or in association with other treatments to engage patients and improve the overall quality, cohesion, outcomes, and value of healthcare delivery. DTx products demonstrate safety and efficacy in randomized clinical trials, receive regulatory clearance when used as a medical device, integrate into clinical practice, and tailor to patients' clinical needs, goals, and lifestyles.
