Solera Health adds HealthSlate’s Diabetes Prevention Program to its network

HealthSlate

Solera Health has added another Diabetes Prevention Program (DPP) provider to its network. After Blue Mesa, it’s HealthSlate which is bringing its mobile evidence-based chronic disease prevention and management programs to Solera’s platform.

HealthSlate’s mobile-based DPP helps users reverse prediabetes, and includes personalized care from dedicated nutritionists and health coaches, connected fitness trackers and scales, and peer support. The platform can also be integrated within the healthcare team, which can access information about the patient’s self-management activities and remotely support the patient if desired. As part of Solera’s network, HealthSlate’s service is available as an Affordable Care Act (ACA) covered medical benefit.

“Through this partnership with Solera Health, we hope to be able to better reach, engage and support at-risk individuals and ultimately help them reverse their prediabetes condition,” Jared Saul, MD, CTO and co-founder of HealthSlate, said in a statement.

Solera Health is on a mission to transform the chronic disease prevention delivery program model by simplifying the contracting and referral process for payers, and creating a sustainable revenue model for community and digital program providers. As part of that goal, the company simplifies patient choice, access and engagement. In November 2015, Solera has raised $3 million in Series A funding from BlueCross BlueShield Venture Partners (BCBSVP) with participation by Sandbox Industries.

According to the American Diabetes Association the economic burden of prediabetes is up 74 percent over five years, exceeding more than $322 billion in excess medical costs and lost productivity.
