Fruit Street Health Exhibits Virtual Lifestyle Medicine Clinic Software
Fruit Street Health, a new digital wellness and telemedicine platform, exhibited at the 64th annual scientific session of the American College of Cardiology (ACC).
Fruit Street emphasizes lifestyle medicine by combining wearable devices and telehealth videoconferencing technology. The new Fruit Street Wellness Clinic product has been designed specifically for healthcare providers who are looking to monitor the lifestyle of their patients and conduct virtual consultations on Fruit Street’s HIPAA-compliant, FDA-registered video solution. The solution will also be fully integrated with leading wearable technologies such as FitBit, Withings, Jawbone UP, iHealth Labs, and the upcoming Apple Watch. This will enable clinicians to monitor lifestyle data from their patients such as sleep, exercise, diet, weight, blood pressure, and blood glucose data. The alert system also will send notifications to healthcare providers when patients don’t exercise enough, sleep too little, gain weight, or skimp on their fruit and vegetable intake.
Dr Asif Ali, clinical professor in cardiovascular medicine at the University of Texas Health Science Center at the Texas Medical Center in Houston and Chief Medical Officer of Fruit Street Health, says in a release, “The ACC guidelines tell us to implement lifestyle management to reduce cardiovascular risk. The issue physicians face is the lack of knowledge and time to discuss a comprehensive program with each of our patients. Fruit Street Health helps combat this problem through its virtual wellness clinic software. Now every cardiology office can have its own virtual wellness clinic.”
