SAN FRANCISCO, Jan. 20, 2021 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Inspiring Communities, a nonprofit organization based in Richmond, CA with full CDC recognition for delivering in-person National Diabetes Prevention Program (National DPP), has partnered with Wellocity Health to deliver the National DPP online in English and Spanish. Online delivery provides convenient access to participants from anywhere at any time via their mobile device or computer to fit within a busy lifestyle to prevent type 2 diabetes.
The partnership with Wellocity enables Inspiring Communities to increase access, extend its participant base with employers and health plans, and make the best use of a limited supply of lifestyle coaches. Wellocity provides a turnkey HIPAA compliant telehealth platform designed for CDC recognized NDPP organizations enabling virtual and distance learning delivery.
The Wellocity platform has allowed Inspiring Communities' lifestyle coaches to easily adapt to online delivery and enabled them to engage participants outside the class using messaging and a community for support. With a complete solution for National DPP that includes a branded participant journey, lifestyle coach portal, participant apps, customized content, scheduling, and reporting the Inspiring Communities team can now spend more time engaging the participants to improve retention and outcomes.
"Being a DPP Coordinator requires me to be in contact with my healthy lifestyle coaches and participants", said Minda Chai, DPP Coordinator for Inspiring Communities. "Having Wellocity to support us gives us the boost to encourage our participants to make healthier lifestyle changes. Our participants really enjoy the Wellocity App and how easy it is to use and share ideas and recipes. I would recommend any DPP organization who is considering online programs to consider Wellocity."
"It is an honor to partner with a community-based organization with an extremely dedicated staff to adapt the program to its target audience and help it build a brand that is recognized by the public, employers, and health plans for secure and easy to use lifestyle change programs," said Sameer Kanagala, CEO of Wellocity Health.
