New Online Care From Dietitians Helps Control Weight

In the e-Care for Heart Wellness study, overweight Group Health patients with hypertension improved health outcomes with help from a ‘pocket dietitian.’ Group Health patients who were overweight and had hypertension were more likely to have lost 10 pounds in six months if they had secure online access to a dietitian than if they received only information and usual care. The American Journal of Preventive Medicine published the e-Care study.
