Fruit Street Health Achieves Full CDC Recognition for its Diabetes Prevention Program Delivered via Video Conferencing With Registered Dietitians
Date:7/12/2019

Fruit Street Health (http://www.fruitstreet.com) today announced that the company has gained Full Recognition status for its diabetes prevention program from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Fruit Street has become the first Diabetes Prevention Program (DPP) provider to gain full recognition from CDC that delivers the diabetes prevention program via telemedicine and live video conferencing.

In order to gain full CDC recognition, diabetes prevention programs must meet rigorous CDC standards and report its outcomes to the CDC every six months. These requirements include participants achieving at least 5% average weight loss when participating for 9 months, 35% of participants qualifying for the program based on a blood test, and achieving minimum levels of participant attendance and engagement.

Fruit Street addresses the limitations and barriers of physical class attendance by allowing patients to attend their DPP classes via group telehealth video calls, which eliminates both the cost and wasted travel time of commuting to a physical class. In the Fruit Street DPP delivery model, a registered dietitian conducts these 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. The wireless scale records the weight of the patients throughout the DPP and the Fitbit both encourages a healthy lifestyle and transmits exercise data back to the registered dietitian in HIPAA and HITRUST certified software.

Fruit Street has also achieved HITRUST certification and completed a SOC2 Audit which is a validation of Fruit Street’s privacy and security practices.

"Fruit Street's accomplishment of gaining full recognition with the CDC is a validation of our telehealth delivery method of the diabetes prevention program, excellent team of registered dietitians, and the weight loss outcomes we are able to achieve with individuals at risk for type 2 diabetes. Employers, health plans, physicians, and participants in the program can be sure that they are signing up for a program with proven outcomes,” said Fruit Street founder and CEO, Laurence Girard.
