Dr. Taraman will share insights with physician innovators and investors on the Software as a Medical Device (SaMD) category and the potential of breakthrough devices like Cognoa’s digital medicines to change the standard of care.
Cognoa is developing what is expected to be the first prescription digital therapeutic and the first diagnostic for autism spectrum disorder (ASD) that enables pediatricians and primary care physicians to diagnose ASD so that children can receive earlier treatment. Cognoa has launched a pivotal trial of its ASD diagnostic and intends to submit the results as basis of its premarket submission to the FDA in 2020. The company will receive priority review by the FDA for the diagnostic and for its digital therapeutic for children with autism, both of which have received FDA Breakthrough designation. The ASD diagnostic is the winner of the 2019 Fierce Innovation Life Science Award for Technology Innovation.
Cognoa’s solutions will provide a continuum of care from identifying at-risk children to empowering early diagnosis and treatment of behavioral health conditions. By targeting the critical, early neurodevelopmental windows, Cognoa’s digital therapeutics promote neuromodulation of specific brain networks, which improves functional connectivity for lifelong gains.
With its commercialization partner EVERSANA, Cognoa will enable its digital medicines to be prescribed, dispensed and reimbursed through the same healthcare infrastructure utilized by payers and providers for other medicines, so that these solutions can be available to every pediatrician and child.
