Why DTx?

Mental health is one of the biggest global challenges of the future!

Today, 970 million people live with a mental health disorder and while demand is increasing, most people do not have access to effective care.

Globally, the majority of those who need mental health care do not have access to high-quality mental health services. Human resource shortages, stigmatization and a lack of digitalization in psychotherapeutical practice contribute to the current gap in mental healthcare. Direct-to-user digital treatments like SwissDTx™ and Digital therapeutics (DTx) in general can deliver help to a broader population and provide remote health care to more people in need.

Fact is: There can be no sustainable development without taking care of mental health.

Did you know that poor mental health is globally the leading cause of disability of our time?

Mental health problems impact the long-term education opportunities and limit young people’s life opportunities. Reduced professional chances, poor health outcomes, human rights violations and tremendous economic loss are just a few causes which are directly related to untreated mental health disorders. As more people seek treatment for mental health conditions, the demands on psychological practitioners have increased; digital transformation might play an important role to mitigate the problem.

970 million people affected

Globally, 970 million people live with a mental health disorder of some kind. Many struggle to get necessary mental care, with Digital Therapeutics (DTX) providing a cost-effective option to increase access, decrease stigmatisation and thus reach more people.

SwissDTx™: A software with the potential to disrupt the future of psychological practice.

SwissDTx™ is a unique software concept to conduct psychotherapies in a collaborative, purpose-built digital ecosytsem. Our goal is to contribute to better mental health by creating an engaging state-of-the-art platform for all parties involved in the therapeutic process.

Our SaaS-Solution can also be used for decentralised clinical trials. The generated data provides scientists with valuable insights for further research. Our ultimate vision: We want to provide more people with access to treatment - regardless of their location, language, culture, income or physical condition.

Making therapy digitally available

Delivering blended-therapies through digital devices such as computers and smartphones increases patient access to clinically safe and effective therapies while lowering stigma by offering at-home convenience and privacy.

Better availability, more impact.

Being remotely connected, anytime

The clinicians’ ability to remotely care for patients and even involve their peers, increases the chances of success and the efficiency of therapeutic practice; resulting in a more engaging solution for patients to work on their mental health.

Better involvement, more impact.

Spreading evidence based therapies

Until now, psychotherapists did not have an easy access to scientifically developed digital therapies and scientist where depending on print publishers. With the virtual library, scientists can share their know-how and therapists can apply it quicker.

Better therapies, more impact.

Collecting data for further research

Our digital platform can run trials and creates valuable anonymised insights. This data can be analysed and used for further clinical research - in order to create, optimise and improve therapeutic treatments for future generations.

Better scientific data, more impact.
