Technology advancement has brought a wave of change in healthcare, with an increasing number of key pharma players now recognizing the potential of digital – particularly in clinical trials.
FDA has approved Abilify MyCite, a treatment for some psychiatric conditions that integrates a drug with a sensor that records when the medication is taken. The goal is to track medication compliance. It is an important regulatory milestone for the nascent field of digital medicine, but many questions about the market remain.
Otsuka plans a slow, measured launch of Abilify MyCite, developed with Proteus Health. The product includes an ingested sensor that sends a signal to a wearable patch and an app that tracks ingestion, activity and mood to potentially improve management of psychiatric care.
