#PreventDiabetes is built upon incentaHEALTH’s core weight management program that has been helping individuals achieve and maintain a healthy weight through online coaching, patented photographed progress tracking, and incentives for meaningful change. incentaHEALTH brings a low cost alternative to the traditional classroom based diabetes prevention programs.
Over the last three years incentaHEALTH has worked with organizations such as the Yale-Griffin Prevention Research Center, University of Nebraska Medical Center, Wyoming Department of Health, and the University of Utah to implement their virtual diabetes prevention program, #PreventDiabetes. Over 67% of these participants lost weight in the program and over 60% percent of those completing the program reduced their A1C, had a 5% weight loss, or a 4% weight loss and increased physical activity.
“Retaining the CDC full recognition shows our ability to engage and coach participants in a scalable manner, validates our behavior change methodology to achieve clinically meaningful outcomes, and helps participants reduce their risk for developing type 2 diabetes.”
said incentaHEALTH Director of Population Health, Jean Newell, MPH, CHES.
As part of the Diabetes Prevention Recognition Program, the CDC awards full recognition to diabetes prevention programs that meet its standards and effectively deliver a proven lifestyle change program. These include delivering CDC-approved curriculum, utilizing trained lifestyle coaches to help build participants’ skills and confidence to make lasting lifestyle changes, and meeting or exceeding engagement and outcome metrics.
incentaHEALTH continues to grow our partnerships with employers, health systems, researchers and medical groups who are looking for scalable solutions to the diabetes health crisis. Contact incentaHEALTH for a demo of the powerful #PreventDiabetes platform.
