Orexo’s partner Trinity Health today announces the availability of vorvida® and deprexis® to patients

Uppsala, Sweden – September 7, 2022 – Orexo AB (publ.), (STO:ORX) (OTCQX:ORXOY) today announces the Integrated Healthcare System, Trinity Health in North Dakota, in partnership with Orexo, is expanding patient access to digital therapeutics. Trinity Health will now offer Orexo’s evidence-based digital therapies vorvida® and deprexis® to help patients manage depression and excessive drinking.


During the last year, Orexo and Trinity Health have collaborated to establish new administrative processes and support systems to ensure effective patient access to these innovative digital therapies and reimbursement of the products through a collaborative care model. In preparation for the implementation, Orexo and Trinity Health have educated more than 50 healthcare professionals in the collaborative care model, where more traditional healthcare delivery methods are combined with Orexo’s digital therapies. To ensure successful implementation, Orexo and Trinity Health have agreed on an extensive communication plan to patients in North Dakota and Eastern Montana.


Both vorvida® and deprexis® are based on cognitive behavioural therapy techniques that empower patients in their efforts to make behaviour and lifestyle changes. These digital therapeutics can be used privately and are available 24 hours a day, helping to reduce the stigma that is often associated with mental illness and substance use disorders (SUD) as well as making evidence-based psychosocial support accessible to a large group of patients.


Trinity Health serves over 25 counties and more than 200,000 people in North Dakota and Eastern Montana, many of whom live in remote areas. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), North Dakota has the highest prevalence of binge drinking in the US. CDC data also shows an estimated 25 percent of the adults in North Dakota, and 27 percent of adults in Montana, experienced symptoms of major depressive disorder in July 2022.


Nikolaj Sørensen, President and CEO, said:I am very pleased to announce that Trinity Health has started to offer our innovative digital therapies, vorvida® and deprexis®, to help patients manage depression and excessive drinking. This milestone is the result of an extensive collaboration with Trinity Health and our shared ambition to be at the forefront in helping people suffering from mental illness and substance misuse. I look forward to continuing our partnership and supporting Trinity Health in becoming a frontrunner among US healthcare systems in making digital therapeutics accessible to patients.”
