techUK's Health & Care Spotlight Series aims to bring together policymakers, innovators, clincians, and academics to examine emerging policy issues or technologies. 

The first in this series will look at digital therapeutics (DTx): technology-based solutions that can treat, manage, or prevent a disease, disorder, or condition. These interventions use software programmes or digital platforms to deliver therapeutic content that improves health outcomes. A DTx could be an apps, virtual reality experience, online platform, or wearable device. 

This event will look at where the UK currently stands with DTx, exploring issues including: 

  • Regulation 
  • Reimbursement 
  • Patient access and equity
  • International exemplars

Come along to hear from:

  • Will Goddard, UK Managing Director of Big Health, developer of Sleepio: the first NICE-recommended digital therapeutic
  • Tamir Singer, Head of Tech Business Development, NHS England
  • Saira Ghafur, Lead for Digital Health at the Institute of Global Health Innovation
  • Polly Shepperdson, Partnerships and Alliances Manager, FDB (First Databank)
