Largest peer-reviewed study of digital health intervention proves the health benefits from six-week digital program persist after 12 months.
Medtronic and Canary Health are the exclusive providers of Better Choices, Better Health™, a six-week digital chronic condition workshop for individuals with diabetes.
How it works:
Better Choices, Better Health is a peer-based program producing lasting positive health outcomes from a six-week online workshop delivered to groups of 20-25 individuals.
As proven by this study, BCBH is effective 12 months post completion because participants learn to reframe all of their challenges, not just their illness, with tools that help them manage their lives, chronic conditions, relationships and emotions. The program’s embedded narrative approach fosters improved health outcomes through the sharing of personal stories in online group discussions.
At 12 months, the study demonstrates these positive outcomes:
• Reduction in A1C; Improvement for individuals with an A1C > 9
With no changes in medications or treatment regimens, patients maintained these outcomes across 12 months:
• Reduction in depression symptoms
• Reduction in hypoglycemic symptoms
• Improved medication adherence
• Improve participation in exercise
