Imag­ine your smart­phone can detect ear­ly signs of anx­i­ety, depres­sion or Parkinson’s Dis­ease — would you like to know? Who else should know … and not know?

Imag­ine a videogame cleared by the FDA to treat ADHD or sub­stance abuse — how will doc­tors pre­scribe it, patients access it, and insur­ers pay for it?
