David Katz, MD, MPH, FACLM and Mark Berman, MD, FACLM will share recent research findings on a digitally-delivered Lifestyle Medicine intervention for building lifestyle skillpower and treating chronic disease. This digitally-delivered intervention (i.e., a digital therapeutic) integrates support from an app, intelligent chatbot and humans (principally, health coaches). Dr’s Katz and Berman will share data from two trials, including participants in over 40 US states, who have type 2 diabetes, hypertension and/or hyperlipidemia. Research on the efficacy of digitally-delivered Lifestyle Medicine and their potential to make treatment options more accessible and affordable for millions of Americans who suffer from chronic disease is especially relevant to this year’s focus on real health care reform.
