S9: #081: Scaling Digital Therapeutics – The Opportunities and Challenges

In this episode, we’re taking on the topic of Digital Therapeutics. At the CNS Summit last year, I had the opportunity to meet our guest: Megan Coder. Megan is the founder and executive director of the Digital Therapeutics Alliance. The Digital Therapeutics Alliance, or DTA as you may hear it called, was launched in 2017 to broaden the understanding, adoption, and integration of clinically-validated digital therapeutic solutions into mainstream healthcare through education, advocacy, and research.

Megan has more than a decade of experience in the healthcare industry. She’s held roles that span from direct delivery of patient care, to leading the strategic growth within the digital health sector. Prior to DTA, Megan worked with Voluntis, Iodine, the Pharmaceutical Care Management Association, and the Pharmacy Technician Certification Board. She’s a qualified pharmacist and a proud graduate from the University of Wisconsin like our guest in episode 63, Dale Beerman.
