DiGA is the German abbreviation for “digital health apps”.
DiGA are class I or IIa medical devices and are tested and approved by the German Federal Institute for Drugs and Medical Devices (BfArM). DiGA only receive a permanent approval if a positive treatment effect has been demonstrated – for instance, in a controlled clinical trial.
DiGA open up a range of options to support the detection and treatment of diseases, and set users on a path to an autonomous health-promoting lifestyle. Approved DiGA can be prescribed by doctors and psychotherapists with a health insurance prescription as an “app on prescription”.
somnio is designed for the treatment of patients with sleep onset and sleep maintenance insomnia who, because of the healthcare conditions, have no access to sleep treatment methods in accordance with guidelines, or who prefer digital treatment.
somnio is a digital implementation of cognitive behavioral therapy approaches for insomnia and gives those seeking help rapid access to highly efficient treatment methods.
The aim of somnio is to reduce the symptoms of insomnia.
Insomnia is diagnosed by doctors or psychotherapists.
Persons with sleep onset and sleep maintenance insomnia consult their doctor, psychotherapist or discuss the symptoms in the medical consultation with a telemedical supplier (e. g. Teleclinic or Avimedical ). If insomnia is diagnosed, somnio can be prescribed by all doctors and psychotherapists either via a health insurance prescription (template 16) or as a prescription based on proof of diagnosis.

The German Sleep Society (DGSM) recommends “cognitive behavioural therapy for insomnia” (CBT-I) in adult insomnia patients as the first line of treatment. somnio has been developed based on this form of therapy. CBT-I teaches patients how to establish sleep-promoting behaviour patterns, optimise sleep times and replace attitudes that disrupt sleep with those that promote sleep. somnio aims to reduce the insomnia symptoms of those affected.
The medical benefit of somnio has been proven to have a positive treatment effect in a randomised controlled study.
The study showed that on average, the users of digital sleep training were able to reduce their insomnia symptoms by 50%. Waking up in the night was also significantly reduced in the treatment group.
The effects were also stable in a 12-month follow-up survey.
