Why should you partner with FreshRx?
We can help you address social determinants of health like food insecurity, access to equitable health care, and financial barriers for your patients living with Type 2 Diabetes.
The program is free for you and your patients living in North Tulsa.
How does FreshRx work?
What can you expect?
It can be difficult for anyone to stay compliant with doctor’s orders, let alone those living with food insecurity and poverty. We get patients the nutrient-dense food they need to be back in control of their disease.
We help you meet your health equities goals by working with your North Tulsa patients to get them the care, food, education, and services they need to keep their disease risk factors in check.
In addition to care, we also provide help with accessing free/low-cost wifi, programs that cover health care fees like co-pays, supplemental grocery vouchers, and other resources.
What are the benefits?
Our program targets key risk factors like blood glucose levels, blood pressure, and weight. On average, our patients see a 2.2% decrease in A1c levels and 13 point reduction in blood pressure.
When patients eat healthier, they’re dependence on expensive medications (and the docs who order them) decreases, empowering better disease self-management.
Controlled diabetes leads to fewer emergencies—and corresponding ER use—saving the health care system thousands. And bonus, FreshRx patients are less likely to miss their regular clinical visits as well.
