Comcast: Leveraging a New Virtual Care Model for Diabetes

Tuesday, August 25

9–10 am PT / 12–1 pm ET

A diagnosis of type 2 diabetes often means a life sentence of insulin injections, exorbitant costs, and debilitating complications. Recently, large employers, like Comcast, have begun offering a different kind of treatment to their population—clinically-proven diabetes reversal. 

Comcast Corporation is a global media and technology company that provides benefits to over 135,000 members. Its two primary businesses, Comcast Cable and NBCUniversal, is the home of XFINITY (the nation's largest video, high-speed Internet provider), over 30 cable networks, the NBC and Telemundo broadcast networks, and more. Comcast has historically been at the forefront of adopting innovative digital health solutions including remote health monitoring technologies. 

In this webinar, Dr. Samuel Peik, Corporate Medical Director at Comcast, will share the transformational outcomes diabetes reversal has brought to his population, including an average 64% reduction in diabetes medication. The webinar will also feature a diabetes reversal patient from Comcast who directly benefited from the treatment. 

Key Topics:

  • Comcast’s story: Why Comcast decided to support diabetes reversal for its employees, the results it has seen, including over 64% in diabetes medication reductions alone
  • The diabetes reversal opportunity: How innovations in continuous remote care have opened a new category of diabetes treatment, with a live patient sharing their story
  • Value-based care: Why Virta Health is pioneering outcomes-based models as the only company to put 100% of its fees at risk based on a guarantee to improve chronic disease
