NEW YORK – Digital health and telemedicine company Fruit Street Health will deliver the Centers for Disease Control’s National Diabetes Prevention Program via group telehealth classes and live video conferencing. “Fruit Street’s similarity to the original DPP clinical trial gives us the ability to protect the DPP program integrity and we believe will enable us to deliver excellent clinical outcomes,” said Laurence Girard, CEO and founder of Fruit Street, in a statement. “This similarity, combined with the fact patients can do these classes from the convenience of their home or office via telehealth, makes the Fruit Street telehealth DPP model a great option for patients.” In the Fruit Street DPP delivery model, a registered dietitian conducts the classes via group video where all of the patients can see and speak to one another. In addition, each patient is issued a Fitbit, wireless scale, and the Fruit Street mobile application, which allows them to take pictures of their food and receive feedback from their lifestyle coach.
