*Usual care is the care the targeted patient population would be expected to receive as part of the normal practice and, within RCTs, refers to the care the participants who are not receiving the tested intervention receive.
In accordance with FDA’s Current Enforcement Discretion Policy for Digital Health Devices for Psychiatric Disorders, for patients who are followed by and diagnosed with depression by a medical provider, SparkRx can be made available as an adjunct to their usual medical care for depression. SparkRx does not replace the care of a medical provider or a patient’s medication. SparkRx has not been cleared by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for these indications.
1.Internal data, Sep 2023. Remission is defined as the percentage of enrolled users with clinical symptoms at baseline whose most recent PHQ-2 score is subclinical. Treatment response is defined as the percentage of users with clinical or symptomatic scores at baseline that show at least 25% improvement on the PHQ-2 between the most recent follow up and baseline. The “clinical”, “symptomatic” and “preventive” severity ranges represented here are based on distributions of internal data collected by Big Health using validated screening tools. While screening tools alone are not sufficient to diagnose depression, screening test results can be an indicator that the individual should discuss their results with their provider.
