Katie Lain, the Director of Community Engagement at Ria Health that provides at-home, evidence-based alcohol treatment through telemedicine joins eHealth Radio and the Addiction Prevention and Telemedicine Channels.


Listen to interview with host Eric Michaels and guest Katie Lain discuss the following:

  1. Can you tell us more about Ria Health and how it helps people who want to drink less alcohol, or even stop for good?
  2. So if a person is finding it hard to control how much they drink, but they also don’t want to go 100% abstinent, what other options do they have?
  3. But if someone does want to go abstinent, these methods can help as well?
  4. How did you get involved with Ria?
  5. In your experience, how would someone know if they are drinking too much and need to seek support to cut back or stop?

TIP: If you’re someone who is experiencing regular hangovers, or find you NEED alcohol to unwind every night or weekend, consider looking into evidence-based treatments and medication therapy. Abstinence is not required, it can be done discreetly and evidence shows that it is effective for many people – resulting in more control over their alcohol consumption, or giving it up more easily without battling alcohol cravings.

Katie Lain is the Director of Community Engagement with Ria Health. Ria’s science-backed platform is for anybody who wants to drink less alcohol and live a better life. Their evidence-based program is delivered through telehealth which means it’s accessible from anywhere using a HIPAA-compliant app.

 

Ria’s program provides both harm-reduction and abstinence based methods that include physician guided care plans, one-on-one coaching, medication therapy, peer group support and digital tools to track progress. Since Ria began in 2016, they have served over 1500 people and counting who want to improve their relationship with alcohol.

 

Ria Health is also covered by many major health insurers across the US, and on average, Ria Members see a 75% reduction in their Blood Alcohol Concentration (BAC) levels after 12 months in the program.

 

Katie Lain joined Ria Health after she overcame alcohol addiction through this evidence-based treatment method. She now works both professionally and personally to raise awareness about these options for treating alcohol dependence.

MyBloodWorks App, a personal medical health tracker

MyBloodWorks App, a personal medical health tracker

July 17, 2014


Glen Ogle, President of GOGLE LLC, the creators of the MyBloodWorks App, a personal medical health tracker which is available in the Apple App Store joins eHealth Radio and the Healthcare and Technology Channels.


Duration: 5:58


Listen to interview with host Eric Michaels & guest Glen Ogle discuss the following:

  • What's new with MyBloodWorks App?
  • Anything else new?
  • What makes MyBloodWorks unique?
  • What do you think about Medical devices that plugs into your phone?
  • You have stated that hospitals put results on their websites for patients to see privately. How does this impact MyBloodWorks?


I tried many ways to monitor my health. Until I created MyBloodWorks, it was very difficult to keep track of my health. One out of three Americans will get high blood pressure. Changes in your pulse can be a clue to something. Many people have blood tests. Diabetes is on the rise. MyBloodWorks will track YOUR health, if you only want to track some areas of your health in MyBloodWorks, then just track what YOU want.


As a transplant patient with years of dialysis under my belt, iv'e been to over 100 physician visits and stayed in hospitals over 6 months of my life, not including dialysis. I know what you need to monitor. I take suggestions on improving MyBloodWorks as I have already updated the App on a MyBloodWorks users suggestion. I think this is the easiest medical App on the App Store.
