Depression, Problematic Drinking, Opioid Use Disorder, and the Role of Digital Therapeutics – Overview


Dr. Shweta Patel (Medical Director, Orexo, US)

Session Educational Summary:

There is an evolution occurring in how digital technology is advancing and being used to support the delivery of mental and behavioral health care. The COVID-19 pandemic brought mental health and gaps in mental health care to the forefront in the areas of depression and substance use disorders. Digital therapeutics represent one potential tool that can be used to address these gaps in care. By the end of this session, participants will demonstrate an understanding of common mental health issues facing the American workforce and how digital therapeutics can help to address these issues. Orexo’s digital therapeutic deprexis® will provide a tangible example of just one mental health digital therapeutic.

Learning Objectives:

  • Participants will be able to demonstrate an understanding of depression, problematic drinking, and opioid use disorder, and how these mental health issues impact the workforce.
  • Participants will be able to describe digital therapeutics in the mental health space, and they will be able to use deprexis as an example of just one mental health digital therapeutic.
  • Participants will be able to assess the clinical data supporting the use of digital therapeutics with a particular focus on Orexo’s digital therapeutics deprexis® and vorvida®.
