Are digital therapeutics the future of mental health? — with Peter Hames

For a long time, the standard of care in mental and behavioral health has been some combination of pharmaceuticals and talk therapy. But with FDA-cleared, rigorously vetted digital health apps, there's a new piece of the puzzle, and it has the potential to combine the advantages of therapy with the scalability of drugs.

In this episode of HIMSSCast, Big Health CEO Peter Hames joins host Jonah Comstock to talk about his view of the future of mental health and the lessons learned so far.

Talking points:

  • What Big Health is all about
  • Scalable mental health therapies
  • Treating algorithms and therapies like drugs
  • Efficacy data and safety of digital therapeutics vs drugs
  • How pharma companies are responding to digital therapeutics
  • Predicting the future of mental health care 
  • Big Health’s partner relationships
  • Mental health stigma and digital therapeutics
  • Digital therapeutics have arrived
  • What’s next for Big Health?
