In the United Kingdom, the Sleepio app will be the first NHS rollout of direct-access digital medicine, reports Mix96.

Last year, over 12 million prescriptions for insomnia were written, at a cost to the NHS of £72m – 1 prescription for every GP, every day of the year. In clinical trials, Sleepio has been shown to help over three-quarters of insomnia sufferers achieve normal sleep.
