Digbi Health’s Gut Biome and DNA-Based Weight Loss and Diabetes Management Program Launches with Blue Shield of California
MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., Nov. 25, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Digbi Health’s clinically validated, personalized obesity, pre-diabetes and type 2 diabetes management program tailored to a person’s DNA, gut biome, lifestyle preferences, and ethnicity is now available to Blue Shield of California members on the health plan’s Wellvolution platform. A digital therapeutics and community health network that is the largest in the industry, Wellvolution was created in collaboration with Solera Health to help consumers holistically manage their health.
Digbi Health’s availability on the Wellvolution platform gives Blue Shield members access to a powerful, proven, DNA and gut microbiome-based precision care and personalized lifestyle medicine tool that is tailored to their unique biology and lifestyle.
“Doctors and payers understand that obesity and diabetes are multifactorial diseases, and one-size-fits-all diet and exercise weight loss and diabetes programs do not deliver patient engagement and sustained health results,” said Ranjan Sinha, CEO, and founder of Digbi Health. “We are the first company to operationalize a DNA and gut microbiome-based prescription-grade platform for doctors and payers to deliver weight loss and diabetes programs at scale.”
“Digbi Health is a strong fit for Wellvolution, which is designed to drive sustained engagement and outcomes by matching members to the program that best meets their needs,” said Brenda Schmidt, CEO, Solera Health.
Blue Shield of California, an innovative health insurer with 4.3 million members, launched Wellvolution in June. The digital therapeutics platform, powered by Solera, features a selection of about 70 digital health apps (out of more than 300,000 currently available in the Apple App Store), curated for clinical effectiveness and consumer preference.
