Why Deliver NDPP in Online and Distance Learning Modes?

The demand for online and distance learning delivery of the National Diabetes Prevention Program (NDPP) 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 using secure video, easy access to the coach using secure messaging, engage with the group for support, and the ability to track their health with apps and share data with the coach.

Designed for Engagement

We designed our platform to help you make the best use of your lifestyle coaches and provide participants more opportunities to access your program. Telehealth group classes and monthly follow-up sessions enable participants and lifestyle coach to meet online and when it’s most convenient for both, on a mobile device using our free app. Our platform goes beyond just telehealth and includes features that improve patient engagement and compliance and lower participant dropout rates.

Simple and Intuitive Participant Experience

The Wellocity participant apps and portal are designed for the target demographic for NDPP,  are easy to use, and keep the participant engaged in the core elements of NDPP.  We provide a simple and intuitive user experience for the participants with a single app that helps participants focus on the program rather than jugging multiple apps with disparate user interfaces.

Easy to Adapt for Lifestyle Coaches

The Wellocity NDPP platform was built to enhance and scale the success of in-person delivery programs offered by experienced lifestyle coaches and draws from their best practices. We designed our telehealth platform to provide a simple and intuitive experience for the participants and lifestyle coaches to easily adapt to online delivery and group video classes while still following their proven playbook for in-person delivery.

Share Content and Monitor Health Data

The Wellocity platform allows lifestyle coaches to share online resources and our apps include all PreventT2 participant handouts for convenient access on their mobile devices. Our apps enable participants to easily gather and share data from mHealth devices like smart Bluetooth and Wi-Fi weight scales, smartwatches, and fitness bands – and enable lifestyle coaches to personalize health and fitness goals. We provide private messaging and a community for support and in-app messaging to help in the coach’s efforts in reinforcing habits.
