Telehealth policy changes, rapid mobile technology developments, and consumer demand for virtual behavioral health services are driving a proliferation of digital behavioral health services, including virtual service delivery platforms and mHealth applications, which includes FDA-approved digital therapeutics. These digital services are reshaping the behavioral health treatment landscape in the U.S. Venture capital-backed digital platforms like Spring Health ($2bn) now deliver therapy as well as medication prescribing. This webinar will bring together academic, business, and industry leaders to discuss the evolution of this industry, its efficacy, and what is in store for the future.

Conversations on the Business of Health Webinar Series

This event is part of a larger series on 'Conversations on the Business of Health,' which will be one-hour webinars that will engage leaders in business and academia. We will explore questions such as: Should companies invest in their employees’ health?  Are companies responsible for the health consequences of their products? Will artificial intelligence actually advance health? How can business offer healthcare in novel settings?

Moderated by faculty members and jointly hosted by the Bloomberg School of Public Health, the Carey Business School, the School of Nursing, and the School of Medicine, the series is open to all.  Indeed, we invite you to spread the word as we seek participants both inside and outside of Johns Hopkins, including the business world.

Seminars will be on a Friday from noon to 1 p.m. unless otherwise noted.
