CONNECTED HEALTH CONFERENCE • SAVE THE DATE • October 16-18, 2019 • Boston, MA
OCTOBER 16-18, 2019
The presenter will discuss how chronic diseases like type 2 diabetes can be effectively managed through tech-enabled continuous remote care, machine learning for stratification of patients in need of coaching or at risk of dropping out, and tools to assist providers in managing their chronic patient populations. The presenter will discuss Virta Health’s methods for safely and sustainably reversing type 2 diabetes using priority scoring; patient biomarkers (inputted daily) and near real-time, 24-hour access to physicians and health coaches. In Virta’s clinical trial, the use of individualized nutrition plans and continuous remote care led to diabetes reversal in 60% of completing patients at one year, with 94% of patients either reducing insulin usage or eliminating it altogether.
