BMC Digital Health is calling for submissions to our Collection on 'Digital therapeutics'. Digital therapeutics (DTx) are an increasingly important research area in digital health, utilizing clinically approved software to treat, manage, and prevent various diseases. In one example, these tools have the potential to improve patients' access to safe treatments by using digital health technologies such as mhealth apps and wearables to track treatment effectiveness and intervene into patient behaviors. This expanding field requires rigorous evaluation of its efficacy, integration with conventional healthcare, and understanding of regulatory, ethical, and broader healthcare implications. We encourage contributions from a wide range of research topics including innovative tool development, clinical effects, ethical aspects, integration into traditional healthcare, healthcare economics evaluation, sustainability aspects and the future landscape of the field.
