The American College of Lifestyle Medicine (ACLM) has announced the addition of digital nutrition solutions innovator Metabite to its Lifestyle Medicine Corporate Roundtable, a group of thought leaders and industry professionals who explore effective clinical innovations, activate marketing strategies, accelerate reimbursement and policy adoption, and pursue research and demonstrations of lifestyle medicine in practice. The ACLM launched its Corporate Roundtable in 2016 and now has nearly 50 member organizations active in the lifestyle medicine ecosystem.
Lifestyle medicine is a medical specialty that uses therapeutic lifestyle interventions as a primary modality to treat chronic diseases, including but not limited to cardiovascular disease, type 2 diabetes, and diabetes. ‘obesity. Clinicians board certified in lifestyle medicine are trained to apply prescriptive, evidence-based lifestyle changes to the whole person to treat and, when used intensively, often reverse these conditions . Applying the six pillars of lifestyle medicine – a plant-based diet, physical activity, restful sleep, stress management, avoidance of risky substances, and positive social relationships – also provides effective prevention of these conditions.
While there are thousands of nutrition and diet apps out there, there are far fewer nutrition coaching solutions aimed at helping nutrition professionals expand their reach. There are even fewer solutions that have the necessary application programming interfaces (APIs) to enable integration with healthcare systems, allowing them to serve at-risk populations while efficiently managing their workflows. Metabite excels in providing scalable and personalized digital nutrition solutions that can be integrated into hospital infrastructure and can be used to serve at-risk populations that are often overlooked. Additionally, the Metabite solution is modular, allowing partners to select and use specific features that meet their specific needs.
Metabite interventions are cost-effective and scalable, producing substantial returns on investment in private practices and large health systems. Metabite’s versatility also supports observational and interventional research and has even been shown to improve physical performance in individual athletes and entire sports teams. Its effectiveness in teaching ‘food as medicine’ has gained international acclaim, with researchers and clinicians at the University of Cambridge touting Metabite as one of the three most widely used platforms in its class. Key features include an image-based food diary, timed program rollouts, individual and group coaching, competitions and gamification, as well as personalized quizzes and key data collection. These elements work together to promote engagement and establish helpful feedback loops that perpetually improve results.
“We developed Metabite to amplify the efforts of forward-thinking organizations and healthcare professionals like those who clearly gravitate towards ACLM,” said Michael Quarshie, co-founder and CEO of Metabite. “Time, energy, and budget constraints can cripple well-meaning businesses and individuals who truly want to help others eat better and make lasting lifestyle changes. We’ve built our platform to break down barriers and help these champions serve their members and patients far more effectively than would otherwise be possible.
“Metabite’s modular approach gives healthcare providers the flexibility to tailor solutions tailored to their unique needs,” said ACLM President Cate Collings, MD, FACC, DipABLM. “Their interest in serving at-risk populations is particularly important as we look to scale lifestyle medicine solutions at large. We welcome Metabite to our corporate roundtable.
