SAN FRANCISCO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Better Therapeutics, Inc. (“Better Therapeutics”, NASDAQ: BTTX), a prescription digital therapeutics company developing cognitive behavioral therapy to address the root causes of cardiometabolic diseases, in partnership with Colorado Prevention Center (CPC) Clinical Research, today announced the first patient has been enrolled in a real-world evidence study to evaluate the long-term effectiveness and healthcare utilization changes associated with the use of BT-001 for the treatment of type 2 diabetes. The open-label, randomized, controlled study is actively recruiting patients with type 2 diabetes from the University of Colorado Health System.
“CPC is excited to commence enrollment within the University of Colorado Health System to understand how BT-001 impacts cardiometabolic risk and healthcare utilization in our diverse, type 2 diabetes population by addressing the behavioral root causes of this complex and prevalent condition,” said Marc Bonaca, MD, MPH, executive director of CPC Clinical Research and CPC Community Health. “We look forward to providing regular updates on progress and outcomes to evaluate the long-term durability of effectiveness and cost of care impact.”
“Today’s announcement marks the second real-world study collaborator initiating enrollment within the last six months and an important milestone for Better Therapeutics,” said Mark Berman, MD, chief medical officer of Better Therapeutics. “CPC’s contribution to our multi-year real world evidence study will generate robust data demonstrating the potential to improve and maintain glycemic control and reduce ongoing healthcare costs and medications that payers can use to assess for coverage reimbursement.”
