Omada Health's flagship app, Prevent, is an online version of the landmark Diabetes Prevention Program (DPP) clinical trial, which showed that a 16-week intensive lifestyle therapy can help people with prediabetes lose weight and reduce the risk of developing type 2 diabetes. Prevent places participants into small online groups led by a professional health coach, who help one another overcome psychological barriers to weight loss and maintenance. Participants are guided through an evidence-based curriculum and track their progress using digital tools such as a wireless scale and pedometer. Improvements in participants' diet, exercise, weight, mood, and well-being are measured.
