Take your Diabetes Prevention Program Online with Telehealth

Improve Access and Facilitate Better Outcomes

Online DPP is rapidly increasing in popularity in large part due to consumers access to numerous health apps and their daily use of messaging and facetime with friends and family. Consumers have come to expect flexibility to schedule classes, attend classes from the comfort of their home via secure video, easy access to the coach via secure messaging, engage with the group for support and the ability to track their health with apps and share data with the coach.

Wellocity empowers your organization to easily add the online and distance learning delivery modalities to your in-person programs. Today, if you’re missing any delivery modalities, you could be losing out on the opportunity to increase your participant base and to grow your business in the highly competitive DPP landscape.

How it Works

The key driver for adding telehealth to a DPP program is to increase access, enable participants to connect from their own homes and make the best use of a limited supply of lifestyle coaches.
