THE EFFECT OF IN-PHARMACY AND ONLINE SUPPORT: GRIFFITH UNIVERSITY STUDY
CLINICAL REPORT SHOWS IMPROMY MORE EFFECTIVE THAN OTHER LEADING WEIGHT LOSS PROGRAMS*
There are many different ways that people can try to lose weight today and lots of conflicting messages for consumers. A study carried out by Griffith University provides clarification on just how effective different programs are and on the effect of different support mechanisms, including pharmacy consultations and digital services.
The study, Leveraging online and in-pharmacy support to enhance weight loss: a population based analysis, primarily focuses on the Impromy Health and Weight Loss Program due to its inclusion of in-pharmacy support, a decision support system for consultants, a custom-developed smartphone app, phone support from Dietitians and high quality supplements. In the study, this combination of support tools and mechanisms was shown to provide significant weight loss results for members. Over a 12 week period on the Impromy Program, members averaged weight loss of 7% of their total body mass and more than 1 in 4 members lost at least 10% of their body mass*.
