Virta Platform

What else is at play?

Diabetes patients make decisions about their health almost every hour, e.g. through their diet or medication. In addition, patients need to come in for examination monthly to allow a healthcare professional to monitor their chronic disease. As a result, people with diabetes need an accessible, efficient way to self-monitor their health condition. Virta Health designed a digital platform that allows for diabetes patients to be treated with therapy, coaching and remote monitoring. Patients enter their glucose values into the app and can get in touch with a physician digitally. As such, the platform contributes to the patients’ self-reliance. The therapy aims to regulate blood sugar without the use of medication. The platform even claims the ability to reverse diabetes entirely.
