DALLAS, March 21, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- MyndVR, the leading provider of therapeutic VR experiences designed for the aging population, today announced AT&T's support of the initiative. This purpose-driven alliance of academic and industry partners was designed to educate lawmakers in the effort to pass the bipartisan Access to Prescription Digital Therapeutics Act of 2023. AT&T stands alongside other industry leaders supporting this effort, including the XR Association (XRA), HTC, Select Rehabilitation, International VR Healthcare Association (IVRHA), and the National Association of State Veteran Homes (NASVH).

"As 10,000 Americans turn 65 every day, we know that digital therapeutics will play a critical role in reducing healthcare costs, while creating a new frontier in human health. This immersive technology will have a profound impact on the aging population, helping them to live healthier, happier, virtually connected lives," said Chris Brickler, co-Founder and CEO of MyndVR.

The bipartisan legislation, proposed by Reps. Mike Thompson (CA-05) and Kevin Hern (OK-01) and Sens. Jeanne Shaheen (D-NH) and Shelley Moore Capito (R-WV), aims to officially define prescription digital therapeutics (PDTx) at the federal level and establish new payor benefits to treat a broad range of age-related health conditions. The bill was reintroduced on March 7, 2023.
