Imagine having access to a registered dietitian for one-on-one nutrition counseling via your mobile phone or laptop? Telehealth is a way to conveniently access personalized healthcare from the comfort of your home or office by using a HIPAA-secure online platform.
Now HealthEase offers telehealth as an option for companies who sign up for our exclusive Your Fuel™ nutrition counseling program. Your Fuel is led by a team of registered dietitians who can provide private nutrition counseling sessions at the worksite for FREE to the employer and the employees because the sessions are covered by many health insurance providers, including Independence Blue Cross and Aetna.
The secure telehealth platform used by HealthEase dietitians for virtual nutrition counseling is called Healthie. This valuable tool, which includes a mobile app and personal online portal, offers important benefits:
Convenience – it’s accessible anywhere and eliminates the need to travel for appointments
Ongoing support from the dietitian in between regular appointments
View uploaded documents, such as meal plans, recipes, and educational materials
Exchange messages with the dietitian, so you can ask questions or send updates on your progress or challenges
Track your health activities by maintaining a photo food log, recording and updating metrics (weight measurements, etc.), and logging exercise – all of which the dietitian can view and provide feedback
Schedule, cancel, or reschedule appointments and receive reminders
Video chat with the dietitian through your mobile app or computer
Integrate with wearable devices like Fitbit
