How Prosoma is Transforming Women’s Health

Redefining mental health care in oncology through digital innovation

Mental health for cancer patients is a critical, complementary component of recovery

Cancer imposes not only physical but profound mental health challenges on patients, affecting their journey to recovery. Despite the critical role of mental health support in the holistic treatment of cancer, patients frequently encounter a landscape where psychological care is underprioritized, underfunded, and inconsistently integrated into cancer treatment programs. This oversight leads to a significant gap in care, leaving many patients to navigate the emotional, psychological, and social repercussions of cancer with insufficient support. The disparity in access to mental health services exacerbates the situation, particularly for those in socioeconomically disadvantaged communities, who face additional barriers such as cost, stigma, and lack of tailored services.

Prosoma’s Solution: Living Well

Prosoma Digital Therapeutics provides comprehensive solutions that improve the quality of life for cancer patients.  Their clinically-validated, self-care mobile application Living Well supports cancer patients' behavioral and mental health needs to improve their quality of life and overall outcomes.

Living Well is the only self-care solution delivering psychological and behavioral support to cancer patients instantly, cost-effectively, and reliably. Its clinically validated program, designed explicitly for cancer patients, reduces symptoms of stress, anxiety, and depression related to the diagnosis and treatment of cancer which improves patients' emotional functioning, quality of life, and overall outcomes.

Living Well has been created by an international team of clinicians, psycho-oncologists, psychiatrists, and experts in user experience and game design. ‍The app's program is derived from Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), one of the most effective, scientifically validated approaches in today's psycho-oncology. Moreover, the app's effectiveness is continuously assessed through clinical trials, real-world data, and user experience analyses to ensure it delivers the support needed.  

‍Living Well is a CE-medical device with proven quality, safety, and data security. The data is stored and processed following the highest standards in data security and protection for medical devices to ensure patients' data is safe and only available to authorized users. Certification includes:

  • CE Mark: Class I medical device aligned with the European MDR 2017/745 
  • Guided by HIPAA and FDA regulations in the US
  • Products designed and developed in accordance with ISO 13485 [Medical Device Quality Management System]
