The future of diabetes care could look a lot different than you think

By NCQA on February 2, 2022 in Quality Talks

At Quality Talks, we showcase speakers who have enthralling stories to tell, and our first featured speaker has a lot of them! A world champion triathlete, Sami Inkinen was stunned to learn he has pre-diabetes. So he used his tech know-how as co-founder of the Trulia real estate marketplace to create a company that helps people defeat diabetes: Virta Health.

Reversing Type 2 Diabetes Without Medications or Surgery?

Virta Health provides the first clinically proven treatment to safely and sustainably reverse type 2 diabetes without medications or surgery. It recently partnered with West Virginia University Health System (WVU Medicine) to offer its virtual diabetes reversal treatment to staff in West Virginia and across the country. Patients use the Virta app to interact with clinicians and health coaches (multiple times a day, for new patients) for personalized guidance and counseling. This approach helps patients lower their blood sugar and lose weight, eliminating the need for medications, including insulin. Read more about Virta’s approach and its partnership with WVU Medicine.

Are you as intrigued as we are? Join us at Quality Talks 2022 on April 21 to hear Sami’s story.
