Frost & Sullivan's team of industry analysts conducted extensive research and in-depth interviews to evaluate multiple nominees before determining the final award recipient. This process identified Better Therapeutics as the frontrunner in the diabetes digital behavioral therapeutics industry, as evidenced by the launch of AspyreRx - the first prescription-only digital therapeutic indicated to treat patients with type 2 diabetes. Furthermore, Better Therapeutics' proprietary platform offers the potential to rapidly expand its use to other cardiometabolic conditions in the future.

The Frost & Sullivan team summarized its findings in a comprehensive report and shared this with its healthcare network. The report is available for download.

“A prominent factor that sets Better Therapeutics’ apart from competing solutions is its unique architecture that enables high scalability for the company to develop new prescription digital therapeutics. These could help treat a wide range of cardiometabolic diseases including hypertension, obesity, non-alcoholic steatohepatitis/non-alcoholic fatty liver disease, hyperlipidemia, and chronic kidney disease,” commented Neeraj Nitin Jadhav, industry analyst at Frost & Sullivan.

After eight years of clinical development, involving more than 6,500 participants in studies of increasing rigor, Better Therapeutics received FDA authorization in July 2023 for AspyreRx to treat adults with type 2 diabetes. Shortly after, it announced that the product is commercially available for healthcare providers in the U.S. to begin prescribing the treatment.

"Receiving this award is a testament to the hard work and vision of our entire team. We are honored and motivated to continue our mission of advancing human health through the power of behavior change. It also reinforces the immense potential we see in making a meaningful impact on the lives of the 37 million individuals living with diabetes in the United States," said Frank Karbe, Chief Executive Officer at Better Therapeutics.

About AspyreRx

AspyreRx (formerly BT-001) was granted marketing authorization by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in July 2023 as the first prescription-only digital therapeutic to treat adults with type 2 diabetes (T2D). AspyreRx is backed by robust data demonstrating clinically meaningful and sustained reduction in A1c as well as improvements in other markers of cardiometabolic health when used up to 180 days. Using proven techniques that target the underlying psychological, behavioral, and cognitive factors that sustain or worsen T2D, AspyreRx is a self-paced, engaging experience that patients can access from their smartphone. It is prescribed by a healthcare provider in 90-day increments, with proprietary CBT delivered digitally in a weekly step-by-step process. Through interactive therapy lessons, skill-building modules, weekly goal setting and tracking, patients connect changes in behavior to improvements in blood sugar and other biometrics. Each step in the experience builds on the prior to enable and reinforce cognitive restructuring, building the emotional resilience and acceptance needed to make enduring changes.

Indications for Use

AspyreRx is a prescription-only digital therapeutic device intended to provide cognitive behavioral therapy to patients 18 years or older with type 2 diabetes. The device targets behavior to aid in the management of type 2 diabetes in patients who are under the care of a healthcare provider. AspyreRx provides cognitive behavioral therapy as a treatment that should be used adjunctively with standard of care.
