“We are delighted to see the positive and continued impact of our integrated approach on our members,” said Richard Frank, Chief Medical Officer of Vida Health. “It is not surprising to us that patients who are supported as a whole person see better outcomes than those who are treated in silos. It is clear that people with diabetes need integrated behavioral health support along with physical health support and we are excited to be able to offer this to our patients.”
This study used a single-arm retrospective design. Participants were enrolled in the Vida Health Diabetes Management Program. This app-based intervention adopted one-on-one remote sessions with a health coach, certified dietitian, and/or certified diabetes care and education professional, and structured lessons and tools related to diabetes management and self-care. Participants provided baseline HbA1C values as well as follow-up values at least 90 days after starting the program. The Patient Health Questionnaire (PHQ-8) and Generalized Anxiety Disorder Scale (GAD-7) assessed self-reported symptoms of depression and anxiety, respectively.
said Gretchen Zimmerman, RD, CDCES, co-author of the paper and chief of cardiac care and prescribing for Veda Health. “This model is based on human-led care, culturally responsive nutritional guidance, and integrated behavior change interventions for both physical and mental health. I am very proud of our members and how we can facilitate their success.”
