Our partners

Our partners represent a diverse group of leaders from across the digital health sector


PHTI has convened clinical experts, economists, consumers, payers, and other entities to support in the development of the framework and evaluations.

PHTI developed an original assessment framework specific to digital health tools in coordination with the Institute for Clinical and Economic Review (ICER), a recognized leader in health technology assessment, is an independent, non-profit research institute that produces reports analyzing the evidence on the effectiveness and value of drugs and other medical services.

Additional partners include:

Charm Economics

Charm Economics translates insights from clinical and health economics research into real-world cost and savings estimates for digital health and medical technology businesses and purchasers. We partner with them to deepen our insight into how digital health technologies work, what they cost to deliver, and their impact on patients and purchasers.
