Notifications from the virtual coach are made for the question of the day, to enter each meal, to exercise, to enter your weight as well as performance based advice at the end of each day and week! In this example, the virtual coach is notifying the user that it is time to have the AM snack. Simply tap on the notification (a) and the details of the notification are provided; in this case to have a healthy AM snack and to enter dietary information (b). By simply taping on the notification message, you are automatically taken to the screen to enter your AM snack (c).
At breakfast time, the virtual coach sends you the question of the day (a). The multiple choice question is designed to refresh your knowledge of the educational components of the module, and to get you thinking about blood sugar control first thing in the morning! If you answer the question correctly, the virtual coach congratulates you and asks you if you’d like to input your breakfast servings (b). If you answer it wrong, the virtual coach provides the correct answer and asks if you’d like to input your breakfast servings (c).
To store dietary information into your diary, simply select “Post Each Meal” from the “Options” screen. Next, select the appropriate meal on the “Input Food” screen and finally input the number of servings of each food type! There are similar screens for input of exercise data and weight.
As an alternative to inputting exercise data, the Module has a metronome (step counter) that is accessed by selecting “Monitor Exercise” on the “Options” screen. As it is used, the number of steps and exercise duration is displayed. When these data are submitted, a screen showing distance walked, exercise time, average speed and calories burned are displayed and automatically stored in your diary.
A daily summary is available following input of your final meal of the day. Similarly, a weekly summary is available after you input your weight for the week. In addition, performance based notification messages are sent by your virtual coach at the end of each day and at the end of each week.
The Module is designed to support incentive based wellness programs. The Module provides monitors that can be reviewed by the user that show compliance status. At the conclusion of the subscription period, the user may authorize release of monitored data to obtain an incentive. Note that incentives will only be available if the Module has been made available through a wellness program.
