On-the-Go Secure Messaging
Secure Messaging from Wellocity Health offers unlimited messaging and is available 24/7 to both coaches and participants on their phone with the Wellocity App. Secure Messaging is the key tool for lifestyle coaches to interact with participants in a National Diabetes Prevention Program (NDPP) cohort delivered on the Wellocity Health platform. Secure messaging makes it easier than ever for coaches to connect with participants and enable them to exchange text and photos using the phone's camera and photo library.

While there are no rules for messaging etiquette we advise coaches to use the following guidelines:
- Set expectations for participants on your response time, maintain a healthy work-life balance as messaging enables you to offer 24/7 support to participants.
- Be clear on the topics that can be discussed in messages. For the participants' safety, the Wellocity app prominently displays the message "If this is an emergency dial 911" on the messaging page.
- Immediately report any inappropriate messages and images from a participant to firstname.lastname@example.org

Wellocity provides a messaging app for secure messaging to coaches. The coach logs into the app and can see notifications for new messages from each participant and can start a chat with any participant.
As a coach delivery NDPP in online mode, you can interact with a participant to motivate, engage, and support the participant. Unlike video and audio sessions that need to be scheduled, messaging can be initiated at any time by you or the participant.
The Participants page in the Wellocity app lists all the participants in the cohort with their name and photo. Once you select a participant your messages with the participant are displayed as a conversation. If a participant sent you a new message you will see a notification next to their name and this prompts you to reply.
