The Peterson Health Technology Institute (“PHTI”) is an independent initiative to assess the clinical and economic value of digital health technology. Digital health technology encompasses an array of digital products and services, from technologies that engage consumers for lifestyle and wellness purposes to digital medicine and therapeutics that must be cleared by regulatory bodies.
PHTI aims to promote clear evidence standards and to provide payers and other stakeholders with objective reviews to guide decisions on coverage, pricing, and the need for further research. By identifying technologies and assessing their evidence, the initiative aims to promote more informed purchasing decisions — both encouraging broader uptake of high-value technologies and discouraging adoption of low-value technologies. PHTI was founded in 2023 by the Peterson Center on Healthcare. For more information, please visit www.PHTI.com.
