PRECISION NUTRITION PROGRAM

Supporting Chronic Disease Management Through a Personalized DNA Program

REDUCE INSURANCE PREMIUMS

By Improving The Health of High-Risk Employees*

Unlike standard app-based programs, BASE10’s Precision Nutrition Program is developed by a team of registered dietitians trained in medical nutrition therapy and dedicated to making a qualitative difference in employees’ health. We realize that wellness programs of the past were designed to deliver services, not measurable health outcomes. Meaning that when the costs of managing disease don’t align with improved well-being, the results are financially discouraging.

Positively Impact Plan ROI and Reduce Spends

Our vision to improve the well-being and productivity of those most impacted by chronic diseases built our Nutrigenomics Program. Years of professional and personal experience have repeatedly indicated that leveraging genomic data through a high-touch clinical team can result in transformational health outcomes. To self-funded organizations, this can have a definite and immediate impact on ROI.

A 20% Graduation Rate of High-Risk Cohorts may result in a 70% - 90% reduction in plan diabetic and/or other chronic diseases medication spends.

The Genetic Information Nondiscrimination Act (GINA) makes it against the law for health insurers to request, require, or use genetic information to make decisions about eligibility for health insurance and health insurance premiums, contribution amounts, or coverage terms.

BASE10 uses third-party cloud platforms that meet HIPAA and HITRUST compliance for the storage and access of data. Certifications
and audits for these platforms are available online. Base10’s corporate policies follow strict guidelines for the protection of customer health data within our platform. BASE10 does not engage in the selling of genetic data or exposure to external marketing.

Foster a Happier and More Productive Workforce

The Program offers an innovative alternative to managing chronic diseases by modifying lifestyle choices contrary to DNA predispositions. Our genetically-trained registered dietitians utilize individual data to help construct nutrition strategies to improve BMI and A1C levels, increasing the likelihood of impacting medication costs and associated expenditures.

  • Dietitians identify key predispositions and curate a personalized curriculum for all participants.
  • High-touch clinical team engages participants daily on food and exercise regimens to help achieve goals. Program offers unlimited two-way communication to support weight loss and nutritional guidance.
  • Participants work directly with a registered dietitian who uses behavioral coaching to encourage healthy lifestyles and foster independent living.

BASE10 leverages precision medicine to overcome the limitations of a one-size-fits-all approach to healthcare. Our registered dietitians uncover individuals’ predispositions towards diet choices, nutritional needs, and how they metabolize various foods. Combining this information with people’s medical history and lifestyle preferences, BASE10 dietitians support each participant’s personal, physical, and psychological needs.

  • Human to Human Engagement - BASE10 dietitians onboard participants with a personal 30-minute conversation to thoroughly explain and connect them to their genetic results. Unlike fad diets or one-size-fits-all approaches, the Program provides personalized diets based on our dietitians’ insights.
  • Full Digital Support - Our mobile/desktop app defies the standard self-automated platforms by offering participants direct text messaging with their dietitians. Participants can upload food photos, documents, and even download a variety of healthy recipes.
