Can digital health reduce the treatment burden on patients?

Comprehensive neuropsychological testing typically takes hours to complete, which can be mentally and physically burdensome for patients. Furthermore, the travel required and overall time-commitment to undergo these procedures within a clinic can result in decreased study compliance. Together these factors can confound conclusions concerning treatment efficacy. Here we will discuss how digital health can reduce these burdens when implementing therapeutic interventions to improve patient outcomes. 

Four reasons to use digital health in your clinical trials

In the first of our digital health series we will outline what the term means, and the opportunities offered, within the context of clinical trials in psychiatry. 

How can digital health improve the signal-to-noise ratio in your clinical trials?

The contemporary framework for designing clinical trials is to build a comprehensive cognitive profile of the patient population from thorough but infrequent assessments. However, this framework struggles to capture the daily fluctuations in mood and cognition that many individuals with psychiatric disorders experience. Here we will discuss how the advent of digital health offers the opportunity to capture a more holistic representation of patients’ cognitive function from high-frequency assessments.

Wearable devices: the future for near-patient testing?

Cognition Kit and Takeda have collaborated to deliver high frequency assessments of mood and cognition in major depressive disorder, using the Apple Watch.
