NEW YORK, Sept. 27, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- DarioHealth Corp. (Nasdaq: DRIO) ("Dario" or the "Company"), a leader in the global digital health market, announced new research published in the Journal of Medical Internet Research (JMIR) demonstrating the impact of coaching and breathing exercises as part of the Dario digital behavioral health program alongside coaching and breathing exercises for members living with depression or anxiety.

Dario's behavioral health solution uses an evidence-based triage screener to assess individual mental health needs and recommend the right type of care for each person. Dario's digital Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) based programs offer members self-guided programs designed to teach proven techniques for managing emotional health. Members in a self-guided program have the option of working with a coach for goal-setting and motivation and are able to access digital resources such as coaching and breathing exercises at any time through Dario's app. This study shows the value of a multi-modal approach that enables personalizing the solution to each member over a one size fits all solution.

The study analyzed the data of participants in two cohorts engaged in Dario's digital self-guided programs who started at a moderate or high level of depression or anxiety. These study participants engaged in Dario's digital programs alongside the use of a coach or digitally-delivered breathing exercises over the course of 16 weeks to understand the impact of these support mechanisms. The key results show coaching and breathing exercises can help improve outcomes when applied specifically to the right needs:

  • The analysis revealed a significant decrease in depression and anxiety symptoms during the first six weeks which was maintained throughout the rest of the 16 weeks program.
  • 63% of members using Dario to manage depression experienced an overall improvement in symptoms, and the use of coaching support significantly moderated symptoms in the first six weeks.
  • 63% of members using Dario to manage anxiety also saw an improvement in symptoms, and the use of breathing exercises significantly moderated anxiety symptoms in the first six weeks.

"We're very excited to share this new research which we believe demonstrates how different solution components can deliver additional value in the right populations. Understanding the unique impact of various tools helps improve our knowledge and our solutions so we can ensure each member is getting the best possible support to improve their mental health," said Yifat Hershcovitz, Ph.D., Vice President of Clinical and Scientific Affairs at Dario.

"Digital health solutions, particularly in behavioral health, have tremendous potential to help people access support when and how they need it. We're very proud of this new research as further evidence for the value of digital behavioral health and the need to personalize support for the best possible clinical outcomes," said Omar Manejwala, M.D., Chief Medical Officer of Dario.
