Advantages for professionals

About 35% of the adult population suffer from sleep problems and about 7-10% suffer from clinically relevant insomnia.

The S3 guideline recommends cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT-I) as the method of choice for the treatment of non-organic insomnia in adults. In the reality of care, only very few affected persons receive this highly effective method.

App on prescription

The Digital Health Care Act introduced the “app on prescription” into German health care.

This means that around 73 million people insured under the statutory health insurance scheme are entitled to DiGAs. somnio can be prescribed by doctors and psychotherapists. The costs are reimbursed by all statutory and many private health insurers.
