Comprehensive Telehealth Interventions Help Adults with Chronic Diseases Affected by Diet

New CPSTF Recommendation!

The Community Preventive Services Task Force (CPSTF) recommends comprehensive telehealth interventions to supplement the care of adults who have chronic diseases that are affected by diet. The recommendation is based on results from the following systematic review and expert input from team members and the CPSTF:
Kelly JT, Reidlinger DP, Hoffmann TC, Campbell KL. Telehealth methods to deliver dietary interventions in adults with chronic disease: a systematic review and meta-analysis. American Journal of Clinical Nutrition 2016;104(6):1693-702.

Why is this important?

  • Chronic diseases are a leading cause of health, disability, and healthcare costs in the United States (CDC, 2017).
  • In the United States, 1 in 2 adults has a chronic disease while 1 in 4 adults has two or more (CDC, 2017).
  • Reducing excessive sodium intake and increasing fruit and vegetable consumption can substantially reduce U.S. healthcare costs associated with cardiovascular disease (Zhang et al., 2017).
  • Telehealth can be used to reduce and manage negative health effects associated with chronic diseases, such as heart disease and stroke (Bashur et al., 2014)
