Telemedicine is booming, but many still see it as exclusive to the Silicon Valley elite. The typical digital health consumer is often painted as Apple-watch lovers, middle-aged and high-income earners.
But early adopters in rural America are proving otherwise. A growing number of success stories are showing the enormous, untapped potential for digital health’s impact in rural communities.
One year ago, the Mashentucket Pequot Tribe embarked on a journey to reverse diabetes in their community. What seemed like an impossible journey (given the disproportionately high prevalence of type 2 diabetes in Native Americans) turned out to be a groundbreaking success. While other diabetes solutions have failed to make any sizable impact in this population, they were able to see transformative success with Virta.
In a case study format, we will examine the building blocks of how they were able to unlock digital health adoption. We will discuss how to:
1. Maximize digital engagement for populations that are hard to reach 2. Deploy a comprehensive care model that engages multiple personas 3. Design a diabetes care strategy tailored to unique community needs
Join us on May 13th to explore these topics on digital health adoption, social determinants, and much more.
