Wearables and Connected Devices for Digital Therapeutics (DTx)
Personalize treatment plans
With connected devices, you get reliable data about your patients, so your DTx can make personalized recommendations to your patients. The biomarker and activity data your DTx receives shapes the treatment plan for each individual. Modern wearables and connected devices are easy to pair with a patient's smartphone, and once paired, the data flows to your patient database.
Show, don’t tell
While your DTx may have microlearning courses and lifestyle recommendations that tell your patients what they should do to adopt healthier habits, you need to show them how their lifestyle decisions affect their health. Imagine showing a person with diabetes how their blood sugar level changes based on their activity and diet choices. Using connected device data mapped to data visualizations shows patients how their different behaviors throughout the day change essential biomarkers.
Set a baseline
- Let your patient continue their normal lifestyle for a few days
- Connected devices track important biomarkers
- Timestamp all data
- Data visualizations show how habits negatively affect biomarkers
Show the positive effects of healthy habits
- Show changes in weight, blood sugar, or something else over time
- Highlight the healthy and unhealthy behaviors leading to those changes
- Build positive feedback loops that encourage patients
Add data from hundreds of devices to your DTx
We support over 300 wearables and connected devices, and we're constantly adding new device integrations to our catalog. If your device isn't supported, we can usually add support within a week or two, so please don't hesitate to reach out.
Sample biomarkers you can track with connected devices
- Electrocardiogram (EKG)
- Blood Pressure
- Heart Rate
- Body Temperature
- Blood Sugar
