Virtual Lifestyle Management is an online weight management program that can help physicians manage their overweight adult patients. With 24/7 online access to summaries and graphs of each patient’s progress, physicians can treat numerous people in less time and at lower staffing levels.

Over the 12-month program, patients will learn and adopt healthy behaviors by taking lessons, completing workbooks, and tracking their physical activities and nutritional intake. VLM can enroll users in 6 weeks using existing staff within a practice or DPS Health’s trained coaches.

Funded by the U.S. Department of Defense, VLM is based on the Diabetes Prevention Program’s (DPP) lifestyle intervention, an in-person weight management approach developed by the University of Pittsburgh and funded by the National Institutes of Health.
