AI/ML (OTC: AIMLF) Innovations’ Tech2Heal Launching Clinical Study for its Qookka Mental Health Digital Therapy

TORONTO, ON / July 7, 2022 / AI/ML Innovations Inc. (CSE:AIML)(OTCQB:AIMLF)(FWB:42FB), a company committed to acquiring and advancing Artificial Intelligence/Machine Learning technologies that address urgent societal needs, is pleased to announce that its minority-owned subsidiary, Tech2Heal SAS, reports that it is launching an independent clinical study to evaluate the effectiveness of its depression and anxiety therapy platform, Qookka. The study is being conducted in partnership with a public hospital and research laboratory located in Paris, France. Tech2Heal is committed to showing its ability to operate within highly regulated healthcare systems.

The purpose of the study is to assess the acceptability of Tech2Heal’s mental health digital therapy by both health care providers and patients, as well as to evaluate the evolution of the severity of the patients’ depressive or anxiety disorders at the completion of the program. The ultimate goal of this, and follow-on studies, is to gain approvals and certification of Qookka as a “Class IIa” medical device from European health authorities.

“Our objective is to be a universally reimbursed prescription digital therapeutics in mental health within the next two years” said Fabrice Pakin, CEO of Tech2Heal. “Our ambition is to be at the forefront of making evidence-based mental health care universally accessible. Although the public coverage of prescription digital therapeutics in Europe is still new, prescription numbers are increasing. But in order to allow for the mass prescription of digital therapeutics, prescribers and patients will need to become aware of its existence, and believe in its value. Germany’s DiGA model drew considerable attention to universally reimbursed prescription digital therapeutics, and countries such as France and the US are building similar frameworks”.

“We at AI/ML are very excited by the advancement of Qookka to clinical studies” said Tim Daniels, Chairman of AI/ML Innovations Inc. “In addition to Tech2Heal’s plans for Qookka to be recognized as a medical device in Europe, we are also looking forward to the possibility of deploying the technology in the North American marketplace through AI/ML’s majority owned subsidiary, AI Rx Inc., which owns the distribution rights to this exciting technology in the US and Canada. Importantly, the introduction of bipartisan legislation to enable public coverage of prescription digital therapeutics in the US was recently announced. The bill will establish benefit categories for digital therapeutics, and create a coverage and reimbursement framework that will provide access to millions of beneficiaries of Medicare and Medicaid”.

Fabrice Pakin continued:

“Our migration away from a business model that was focused on digital wellness, to a full emphasis on digital mental therapeutics is now complete. When we analyzed the market, it became evident that mental health wellness is an overcrowded, highly competitive space, that provides little compelling evidence of sustained positive impact on employees. Given this, we do not believe that the “wellness” trend is durable. Additionally, we chose to wind down our physical wellness center located in the south of France, as a large number of companies globally have chosen to continue to allow employees to work remotely as a permanent solution, in spite the pandemic concerns abating. It is imperative that we devote our precious resources towards a business model that affords us the best opportunity for long term success. For Qookka, that is digital mental health therapeutics”.
