Health Tuesday: the promise and current status of digital therapeutics

Health Tuesday is a series of networking events addressing health and wellbeing themes. The event is organized by Business Finland on the first Tuesday of each month and it offers participants an excellent opportunity to discuss with health professionals, health tech companies, decision-makers, investors, and representatives of the public sector.

This edition of Health Tuesday will focus on the topic of digital therapeutics.

Digital therapeutics (DTx) is an exciting and growing field of are evidence-based therapies that complement pharmaceutical therapies and are typically employed in the prevention and management of chronic diseases and conditions such as diabetes, obesity, asthma and depression. As digital therapies collect data from the patient, they can be optimized for an individual patient while also collecting data for developing the therapies for future patients and accumulating data to measure outcomes for payers.

If you want to learn more about this exciting and rapidly growing area, join the Health Tuesday event.
