Propeller Health is one of five health startups to join together to form a new industry association, the Digital Therapeutics Alliance (DTA), which announced its launch at the Connected Health Conference in Boston this week.
DTA’s mission is to broaden the understanding, adoption and integration of digital therapeutic solutions into mainstream healthcare through education, advocacy and research.
“Digital therapeutics will significantly benefit individuals and communities by improving chronic disease care and treatment,” Propeller Health CEO David Van Sickle, said in a statement. “DTA actively encourages and supports companies working to develop, trial, and market digital offerings with meaningful clinical benefits.”
The other founding members are WellDoc, Akili Interactive and Voluntis. The CEOs of each organization serve on DTA’s board of directors.
