DES MOINES, Iowa, April 23, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Health and wellness technology leader, BettrLife, announces a partnership with Viridian Health Management, a value-driven health improvement company, to improve diabetes care and prevention. Through this partnership, BettrLife's mobile health software will be integrated with Viridian's Maestro™ population health management platform, allowing users to interact directly with Viridian health coaches.
Through integration with BettrLife, health coaches using Viridian's Maestro™ population health management platform can now capture data from remote monitoring devices, while easily tracking food intake and nutritional details. BettrLife's proprietary Health Coach Dashboard will allow Viridian's health coaches to interact directly with participants – providing customized content and encouragement while ensuring compliance with prescriptive meal plans designed to manage diabetic populations.
"Viridian is excited to partner with BettrLife to support the National Diabetes Prevention Program and better manage patients with diabetes. BettrLife is easy for people to use, yet has advanced capabilities designed to increase knowledge and reinforce healthy habits. We expect that a higher percentage of health coaching participants who track their meals and physical activity using the BettrLife platform will stay actively engaged and meet their weight loss goals," said Viridian Health Management CEO, Brenda Schmidt. "BettrLife's integration with the Viridian Maestro™ population health platform provides seamless data integration to support our national network of program providers and health coaches."
BettrLife's mobile- and web-based tools promote user engagement through a smart-logging functionality that intuitively suggests the most commonly chosen foods, allowing complete meal logging in only a few clicks. Additionally, the advanced search feature utilizes Google search to scan thousands of recipes, in addition to BettrLife's comprehensive database of restaurants, USDA food data, and grocery items to ensure all food can be easily logged.
"Our technology is proven to be a powerful addition to any existing health and wellness programs," said BettrLife CEO, Don Schoen. "We've built a modular toolset that can integrate easily with systems like Viridian's Maestro™ platform while enhancing care outcomes for populations with diabetes and other chronic conditions."
