Validation Institute confirms Vida Health’s digital therapeutics program shows meaningful outcomes and cost savings

SAN FRANCISCO–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Virtual chronic care platform Vida Health announced today that Validation Institute, a service organization that independently verifies performance claims by healthcare vendors, has validated Vida’s virtually delivered therapy program for demonstrating health improvement and cost savings.

The Validation Institute is an objective, independent, third-party organization that evaluates the data claims made by healthcare solution providers. Vida submitted a peer-reviewed study of its virtual mental health intervention for examination by Validation. And, after an exhaustive review, the statisticians confirmed that Vida’s program shows sustained reductions in depression and anxiety and an estimated cost savings of up to 20%.

“After years of hard work from the Vida team in developing our digital cognitive behavioral therapy program, it’s so gratifying to have the Validation Institute certify our outcomes and the meaningful cost savings they can produce,” said Stephanie Tilenius, Founder and CEO of Vida Health. “The use of our mental health solutions have grown exponentially over the last year. We’re honored to be providing a scalable solution that’s more convenient, inclusive, effective, and affordable to an overburdened mental health industry in this time of great need.”

“Vida Health’s long-time focus on treating both mental and physical conditions together has proven to result in meaningful outcomes,” said Benny DiCecca, CEO, Validation Institute. “These meaningful outcomes are an important accomplishment, especially during such trying times.”
