While it may be hard to find an exact statistic, it is safe to say that about half of all diets fail. CDEs, Nutritionists, Health Coaches, and Physicians all around the world know how hard it can be to keep their patients on a diet regimen.
Failing a diet can be even harder for those with prediabetes and type 2 diabetes. A whole food diet and exercise can help promote weight-loss and prevent their health from declining further.
If fewer people failed these preventive health practices, it would lower the rates of many illnesses across the board.
What if there was a way to track patient’s nutritional intake, glucose levels, and physical activity throughout the day?
The technology is now in place for you to respond, motivate, and educate your patients from anywhere in the world.
Artificial Intelligence + Health Coaching App
But let's take it a step further.
What if an AI could help track glucose levels and provide instant feedback to help a patient decide what to eat based on their readings for that day?
IBM's Watson has already started diagnosing illnesses for doctors across the world. Over time, Watson's AI will learn a user’s eating patterns and be able to develop meal plans for them, even weeks in advance.
This type of technology used on a smart phone, either iOS or android, will revolutionize the way we think about and use digital therapeutics and mobile health technologies.
For example: physicians, health coaches, and dietitians will soon be able to help guide their patients with a program that tracks all their insulin shots via Bluetooth and give them constant updates on how they're doing with their blood sugar for that day.
Artificial Intelligence will free up time for doctors to actually talk to their patients, as well as grow their reach to help many more lives.
Integrating healthcare and mobile technology to provide digital health coaching will improve lives very soon, as health coaching apps for diabetes and many other illnesses reach the market.
