We believe that chronic diseases today are largely preventable and reversible. We are also passionate about the power of perhaps the most basic of all common communication devices, the mobile phone. There is a growing body of both clinical and research data that has found that intense behavioral interventions are a cost effective way to improve clinical outcomes in chronic disease states.
We are pioneers in the use of SMS (text-messaging) to prevent and reverse chronic diseases such as high blood sugar (prediabetes), high blood pressure, high cholesterol, and obesity. Impedio Health is the first mHealth company in the United States to receive pending status from the CDC to deliver its Diabetes Prevention Program.
