Plexus Advisor Neal Kaufman is founder of DPS health, a communications technology company that is a leader in the development of technology enabled and clinically linked self-management support interventions.

Neal writes, "I'm heading down to San Diego for the American Diabetes Association's 71st annual Scientific Sessions. Are you going to be down in San Diego for the meetings? If you are, please stop by DPS Health's booth, #210 and say high, or reply to this email and we can schedule some time to talk.

We recently began working with Indiana University Health (IU Health) to offer patients and employees our online weight management service - VLM. IU Health, long known as a healthcare leader, will be conducting 2 separate pilots of VLM. They are interested in evaluating the impact of VLM on patient and employee health and engagement by offering the clinically-linked, internet-based, weight management service to helps overweight adults become more active, eat better, lose weight and live healthier.

Since last year's ADA meetings, we have seen a remarkable increase in healthcare organizations looking into solutions that address obesity on populations levels. Have you seen similar initiatives to explore population health solutions? Have you been challenged to support an ACO pilot, improve the health of your system's employees, or other approaches targeting large numbers of patients? Are you beginning to look into how you could operate as an ACO? Or how patient centered primary care can fit within a medical home approach? If you have, please get in touch with me so I can tell you how VLM can fit into your organization.

I will also be at the American Association of Diabetes Educators, and American Dietetic Association meetings later on this summer. I will be attending, presenting and/or exhibiting at both events. I would love to schedule some time to catch up. If you are going to be at any of the three events please send me an email to set up a time to chat."
