Brook is excited to announce the purchase of HealthSlate, a CDC-recognized Diabetes Prevention Program. This acquisition allows us to expand our capabilities and launch Brook+, a new digital platform for structured health programs, including a modern, fully-digital approach to diabetes prevention.
Brook+ for Diabetes Prevention is a fully digital program recognized by the CDC. Lifestyle change programs like the one offered by Brook+ can help people cut their risk of developing diabetes by up to half. By moving the entire year-long Diabetes Prevention Program digital, we widen eligibility and improve retention while keeping participants safe during the COVID-19 crisis.
The Brook+ program is based on thoroughly tested and proven, evidence-based approaches and standards. We follow the guidelines and specific interventions of the leading medical authorities, including the CDC, ADA, AHA, and AADE.
Brook’s long-term insurance partner Independent Health is covering the program for all their eligible members, with more partners being added as we grow.
Brook, Inc. and HealthSlate were both created in Seattle, WA. Brook’s team almost doubled in size with the merge. We are so excited to welcome HealthSlate to the Brook team and expand our capabilities and potential member base to help people get healthy and feel their best.
