Our vision

Mental health disorders impose an enormous disease burden across the world and we believe that technological innovations can contribute to better health and play an important role in the future of healthcare. That's why we started to build a vertical SaaS-Platform to improve and facilitate the computer-aided work for psychologists and allow patients to be more engaged in their mental health therapy.

Health is the most important human good. But health is increasingly threatened by mental illness. Depression, anxiety and addictive disorders are already among the most common causes of disability and premature mortality in industrialised nations. But it is not only adults who are affected. About 30-40% of all children and adolescents show mental illnesses. Moreover, we know that mental disorders in children significantly increase the risk of developing a mental disorder in adulthood. These findings speak for an urgent need for research and action. It is all the more astonishing that the subject is so little present in the area of software development. Digital technology can provide new means of assessing and tracking psychopathology.

By combining technical innovation with evidence-based treatments, our digital workspace SwissDTx™ could change how therapists work with patients. Access to clinically safe and effective therapies could be increased for underserved groups, providing therapy with less stigmatisation and at-home convenience. All through an easy-to-use software, one point of connected care and by harvesting data for further clinical research. Our ambitious vision is to contribute and improve mental health of the society, reduce public health expenses and mitigate the economic impact.

Yours sincerely,
the SwissDTx™-Team
