Voluntis, a company specializing in digital therapeutics, has reportedly announced that it has formed a collaboration with research-based global biopharmaceutical company AbbVie, in order to improve patient care coordination in immunology through innovative digital therapeutic software.
As per trusted sources, the companies will collectively leverage Voluntis’ established Theraxium technology to make this novel solution available to patients and providers in the U.S. A news report by the Seeking Alpha, claims that the France-based company will leverage its Theraxium technology which allows patients to self-manage their symptoms through a smartphone application. The report further stated that Voluntis is also collaborating with Roche in hemophilia as well as AstraZeneca in Cancer.
Pierre Leurent, Chief Executive Officer of Voluntis was quoted stating that this collaboration with AbbVie exhibits Theraxium’s value in powering the next generation digital therapeutics in wide-range therapeutic spectrums.
