Proteus Digital Health is enabling a new category of pharmaceuticals: Digital Medicines. These include widely used drugs, formulated so they communicate when they have been ingested; a wearable patch that detects medicines and captures physiologic response; mobile applications to support patient self-care and physician decision-making; and data analytics to serve the needs of health system managers. The ingestible sensor and wearable patch at the heart of digital medicines were approved by the U.S. FDA in 2012, and also have regulatory clearances in the European Union and China. The company has more than 450 issued patents that protect this enabling technology.
Proteus Digital Health is privately held by investors that include Carlyle, Essex Woodlands, Kaiser Permanente, Medtronic, Novartis, Otsuka, and ON Semiconductor.
Proteus Digital Health partners with health systems across the United States to provide Proteus Discover, a digital medicines program that measures medication treatment effectiveness and helps physicians, care teams, and patients improve clinical outcomes. Proteus Discover provides the tools and data needed for health organizations to build patient engagement, efficiency, and measurement into the delivery of care, and an opportunity to mitigate the high costs of uncontrolled diseases.
In November 2017, the FDA granted its first approval of a fully-integrated digital medicine, Abilify MyCite. Abilify MyCite is a drug-device combination product of Otsuka Pharmaceutical’s aripiprazole, an atypical antipsychotic, embedded with Proteus’ ingestible sensor that communicates with a wearable sensor patch, smartphone application, and the healthcare provider’s portal.
