Digital Therapeutics for Healthy Longevity: A Roadmap

Non-communicable diseases (NCDs), including common mental disorders, not only impose an enormous health burden on individuals but also lead to substantial economic burdens for healthcare systems. Especially individuals with lower socioeconomic status are affected by NCDs. Digital therapeutics (DTx) have the potential to offer low-cost personalized interventions easing the burden of NCDs and addressing inequalities in health. This project investigates the importance of preventive care and offers a roadmap toward DTx for healthy longevity with a focus on the region of Eastern Switzerland.
