Click Therapeutics Announces Collaboration with the Massachusetts Medical Society to Enable Advancement in Medical Innovation
NEW YORK – December 6, 2022 – Click Therapeutics, Inc. (“Click”), a leader in Digital Therapeutics™ as prescription medical treatments, today announced their partnership with The Massachusetts Medical Society (“MMS”), a statewide professional association for physicians and medical students, supporting more than 25,000 members.
This collaboration between Click and the MMS will support medical students and physician scientists by fostering innovation in medical practice, research, and education. Beginning this year, Click will sponsor the MMS Information Technology in Medicine Award, which is given annually to a medical student and to a resident, or fellow that uses technology to assist physicians in the practice of medicine, in teaching medicine, or in the pursuit of clinical research.
Click’s specialized expertise in developing novel digital interventions in combination with MMS’s leading voice in health care policy, public health, and clinical medical education will promote collaborations that will shape the future of digital therapeutics (DTx) integration into the practice of care.
“We at Click are thrilled to partner with the MMS as we share a common desire to advance the practice of medicine and democratize access to high-quality care. We are not developing prescription digital therapeutics to solely create a new category of medicine. Rather, we find that responsibly leveraging technology is vital for our systems of care to overcome the pain points experienced by our patients and fellow physicians.” said Shaheen Lakhan, MD, PhD, FAAN, Chief Medical Officer (CMO), Click Therapeutics.
