Enara Health Accelerates National Telehealth Rollout of Clinical Weight Loss Program to Combat COVID-19 Effects

Share:

SAN MATEO, Calif., April 6, 2020 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Enara Health, a technology-powered personalized weight loss program focused on sustainable results, today announced that it is expanding telehealth availability of its program to all residents in California, Texas and Illinois. This rollout represents an earlier-than-planned first stage of a national rollout of the Enara Health platform, a clinical weight loss program that takes a multi-faceted approach to obesity treatment.

The intent of this accelerated telehealth rollout is to give more Americans access to proven, physician-guided weight loss support during the COVID-19 pandemic as a key means of boosting patients' health and immune systems. Via Enara Health's unique telehealth interface, program participants will be able to connect with a team of doctors, dietitians and exercise specialists from their mobile phones and computers.

"Numerous studies have shown that nutrition, activity and stress management play a vital role in our immune defense against respiratory viruses, and our goal is to help Americans achieve optimal health to fight the virus," said Dr. Rami Bailony, Co-Founder and CEO of Enara Health. "Rather than viewing healthy eating, exercise and stress relief as something to be dealt with after this acute crisis is over, we need to reframe these practices as important prevention strategies."

Unlike most other weight loss programs that focus solely on diet or lifestyle modification, the Enara Health platform combines physician interactions, lifestyle evaluations, diet consultations and medication through a unique digital health platform. This precision medicine approach is designed to maximize results through personalized, data-driven recommendations.

Participants in the Enara Health precision weight loss program lose an average of 12.40% of their weight at 6 months and 13.99% at 18 months, a significant improvement over other digital health programs and on par with results seen in bariatric surgery patients.

The telehealth rollout of the Enara Health program beyond its first clinic in San Mateo, Calif., is possible due to newly forged relationships with specialized partner clinics in Texas (WellHealth locations in the Dallas-Fort Worth area) and Illinois (the Center for Adult and Pediatric Wellness in Orland Park). Once the COVID-19 pandemic recedes, local patients will also gain access to in-office physician consultations through these clinics.

"We have spent the past four years establishing, evaluating and fine-tuning Enara Health's clinical approach to weight loss at our clinic in San Mateo, Calif.," said Dr. Rami Bailony, Co-Founder and CEO of Enara Health. "The results we're now achieving have the potential to redefine obesity treatment as we know it. By expanding our program through progressive, like-minded clinics around the country, particularly in this time of crisis, we expect to dramatically improve lives while also decreasing the devastating stigma attached to obesity today."

Residents in California, Texas and Illinois can now enroll in the Enara Health program. Learn more at http://www.enarahealth.com.
