"Vida's approach to managing patients with chronic conditions combines compassionate, patient-centered clinical care with the power of technology," said Gretchen Zimmermann, RD, CDCES, CSOWM, Senior Director of Cardiometabolic and Prescribing at Vida Health.
"Regular self-monitoring, like weight and blood pressure tracking, plays a pivotal role in achieving positive health outcomes when complemented by appropriate clinical interventions. We’re excited to join forces with Withings Health Solutions to provide our members with access to easy-to-use, high-quality devices for monitoring progress, engaging in meaningful discussions with their Vida healthcare providers, and establishing clear, actionable goals to improve overall health outcomes."
This is not the first time Withings has entered into a partnership to cover metabolic diseases: in April it teamed up with the American Diabetes Association on its Project Power initiative, a no-cost lifestyle change program that tackles prediabetes and type 2 diabetes to help reduce its consequences. As part of that partnership, Withings provided its Body Comp scale to Project Power participants.
