Major companies in the medtech space — including Philips, Google and ResMed — are among those joining the Consumer Technology Association’s new digital therapeutics standards initiative.
“With the COVID-19 pandemic, we are seeing faster innovation across all aspects of digital health including digital therapeutics,” said Gary Shapiro, CEO of the CTA.
“This field takes the application of technology beyond just wellness tracking. Companies are now developing solutions that can manage pain, allergies and even address mental health problems. As more people take control of their own health in the comfort and safety of their homes, we must understand what this technology means and how to advance its adoption,” Shapiro said in a news release posted yesterday.
Companies in the initiative include:
- Amalgam Rx
- Doctor on Demand
- GlucoseZone by Fitscript
- Google Health
- Propeller Health
- The Omega Concern
- Tivic Health Systems
