ThreeHealth Tracks Performance and Protocols with Heads Up

ThreeHealth Tracks Performance and Protocols with Heads Up

Medically-supervised weight management clinic, ThreeHealth, Inc., takes a multifaceted approach to wellness. Focusing on the physical, mental, and emotional aspects of metabolic health and weight loss, ThreeHealth combines science and technology with personalized behavioral therapy to deliver outstanding results for a diverse array of clients.

Founded by Brad Butterfield, Brandy Wiltermuth and Marlene Sexton, ThreeHealth treats diabetes, cardiometabolic, and weight loss issues with a uniquely client-focused approach. Taking into account medical conditions, behaviors, biometrics, and goals, ThreeHealth uses state-of-the-art technology to provide sustainable metabolic health results.

ThreeHealth Weight Loss Practitioner Team

Working remotely with clients, ThreeHealth needed a comprehensive way to upload, monitor, and interpret client data. When ThreeHealth discovered Heads Up (HU), the industry-leading health tracking platform, they found the perfect solution for their clinic’s needs. HU created a custom dashboard for ThreeHealth that included a bulk upload of client data, real-time health tracking, and tools for quantifying ThreeHealth’s performance.

“The Heads Up dashboard is an incredibly powerful tool,” says Brad Butterfield of ThreeHealth. “The tracking of all this information can be extremely freeing. Maybe that sounds counterintuitive, but it works, it really works.”

About ThreeHealth

Comprised of licensed medical and behavioral specialists, ThreeHealth focuses on improving metabolic health, reversing diabetes, and developing sustainable weight loss programs. ThreeHealth uses a unique combination of metabolic assessment, behavioral health, and technology tools to support their clients’ goals.

The founding team at ThreeHealth consists of Brad Butterfield, LMHCA and Brandy Wiltermuth, ARNP. Along with Marlene Sexton, LMFT, director of Behavioral Therapy, ThreeHealth has a thriving direct primary care practice and robust telemedicine program with a track record of success. 

Beginning with cognitive-behavioral therapy to address the emotional responses behind eating, ThreeHealth helps clients understand their relationship with food. By uncovering the psychological factors of health, ThreeHealth then creates “individualized, medically-driven, holistic programs that treat the mind, the body, and the spirit,” says Marlene Sexton of ThreeHealth. “Everyone is different, and every patient requires an individualized program based on his or her personal medical conditions and profile.”

In addition to behavioral counseling and personalized nutritional prescriptions, ThreeHealth uses state-of-the-art technology to remotely support and monitor patients. Through the use of smart devices and wearable technology, such as the Oura Ring and Biosense, they are able to detect trends in vital body functions including weight, heart rate, blood pressure, sleep quality, and ketone levels. 

Business Challenge

ThreeHealth needed a system for measuring progress on the individual and cohort level to validate their protocols and promote client retention. Proving the success and capability of their methods is integral to ThreeHealth’s business growth and development. 

Because ThreeHealth provides their clients with a variety of tech tools to track health metrics, they also needed a way to compile client data for easy interpretation. “I can’t have six different platforms for the six different devices that I want people to use,” said Brandy Wiltermuth. 

According to Wiltermuth, compiling and interpreting data “opens the window into exactly what people are doing.” Working remotely with clients, ThreeHealth needed a way to monitor client data in realtime, as well as upload historical data to create accurate baseline metrics and chart progress.

Technology Solution

The goal for Heads Up was to create a comprehensive solution to meet ThreeHealth’s diverse needs. HU designed a custom dashboard that integrates with ThreeHealth’s smart devices. Additionally, HU designed a system to bulk upload client data that allows ThreeHealth to measure performance over time, both for individual clients and for the clinic as a whole. 

Heads Up delivers a clinical-style effectiveness proving platform, giving ThreeHealth all the tools they need to validate their protocols and verify the success of their methods. 

  • Data-Driven Key Performance Indicators
    • Using HU, ThreeHealth can define and measure progress against their program KPIs for business planning and adjustment to better serve clients.
  • Data-Driven Protocol Validation
    • With HU, ThreeHealth can validate their protocols on the individual and aggregate level, giving them the tools to guide business development and growth. 
    • ThreeHealth providers can continuously engage patients, increasing LTV by providing positive reinforcement in real time, based on graph data and metrics.
  • Data-Driven Client Acquisition 
    • With HU, ThreeHealth now has social proof of protocol efficacy that goes beyond written testimonials and before/after pictures. 
    • ThreeHealth can attract new clients based on quantified evidence of their success.

    Validating Protocols with Historical and Real Time Data  

    With years of data ranging from lean body mass to ketone levels, ThreeHealth needed to assess their clinic and client performance based on historical, as well as real-time, data. To address this, HU custom-designed a system for ThreeHealth to bulk upload client records, thereby giving ThreeHealth a holistic view into each client’s progress and a tool for validating the overall success of the clinic. 

    HU’s bulk upload solution allows ThreeHealth to easily track individual and aggregate success through the practitioner portal. With HU, ThreeHealth is able to customize thresholds and reference ranges for tailoring KPIs to their specific needs. This gives the clinic the ability to: 

    • Define the KPIs to track to validate programs at individual and aggregate levels
    • Provide TheeHealth with the tools to easily see results in real time
    • Display the clinical and functional data for metabolic health monitoring 
    • Dig deeper into each client’s health with markers specific to the ThreeHealth program

    ThreeHealth generates graphs showing individual or aggregate weight loss over any time frame, be it a week or the duration of the program. In looking at the data point of weight, or other biomarkers like BMI or blood glucose, ThreeHealth can see overall trends over a given period of time.

    Using Heads Up to gather and track their clients health information, providers can not only see progress at the individual level but also validate and improve their protocols by looking at their clients’ data holistically. In 2020, they saw a significant drop in weight correlated with increased Aces gathered from clients’ Biosense devices. Using this kind of information to feed their programs means they can deliver a more competitive, data-driven approach.

    Custom Lifestyle Dashboard

    Heads Up displays data for clear interpretation by ThreeHealth providers and clients alike. Facilitating patient engagement, data from smart devices is elegantly showcased on the client-facing dashboard, making it easy for clients to monitor their progress. That same data is available through the practitioner-facing portal, allowing ThreeHealth coaches to interpret and clarify metrics for their clients in real time.

    The HU custom lifestyle dashboard was preloaded with tracking tiles specific to the clinic’s needs. ThreeHealth is committed to empowering their clients with information and they track not only weight loss and blood pressure, but other unique metrics including sleep and ketone levels.

    Having a full suite of health information at the fingertips of both the clients and practitioners on one central platform, ThreeHealth can then easily interpret and explain metrics to their clients. The data becomes the foundation for curiosity and a tool for education, empowerment, and understanding about how lifestyle changes affect metabolic health.

    With the HU custom dash, the clinic gives their clients the tools for success, fostering client engagement and increasing LTV. By detecting data trends in vital body functions and promptly intervening when needed, treatments can be easily adjusted and administered quickly based on insights gained from HU’s customizable reports.

    Custom Dashboard Metrics for Metabolic Health

    HU integrates seamlessly with a wide range of wearable health devices and ThreeHealth’s custom dashboard gives an in-depth platform to record and interpret client data. The clinic uses a unique set of metrics from smart devices and wearable technology to optimize clients’ health and weight loss. Beyond the obvious weight management metrics of body weight and blood pressure, ThreeHealth provides their clients with BIOSENSE ketone monitors and Oura Ring sleep monitors. 

    The Three Health client dashboards consist of the following metrics:

    • Sleep and Heart Rate Variability (HRV)
      • Disrupted (e.g apnea), insufficient sleep and chronic stress all have an adverse effect on metabolism and appetite control. All ThreeHealth clients are given an Oura Ring to accurately monitor sleep quality, circadian rhythm and HRV. ThreeHealth practitioners use this data to detect sleep and stress issues and work with clients on corrective measures
    • Ketosis
      • Entering into a state of nutritional ketosis is an important part of the ThreeHealth program. ThreeHealth uses the BIOSENSE breath acetone meter to teach clients how to maintain a state of ketosis for optimal weight loss, blood sugar control and energy levels.
    • Macronutrients (protein, fat, carbs, and calories consumed)
      • ThreeHealth clients maintain a food journal using the Cronometer app. This allows ThreeHealth practitioners to optimize macronutrient ratios for optimal weight loss.
    • Blood Pressure
      • When needed, ThreeHealth uses the Qardioarm blood pressure cuff to remotely monitor blood pressure on clients.
    • Weight, Lean Mass, and Body Fat
      • ThreeHealth makes a keen distinction between weight and body composition. Clients use the Withings scale for monitoring weight at home, in addition to an Inbody clinical grade scale for more in-depth analysis of body fat and lean mass. 
    • Lab Testing
      • Clients also obtain periodic lab testing (cholesterol, Hba1c, etc.) to ensure all clinical markers are improving as their clients body composition, diet, sleep and stress improve during the course of the program.

    All of this data is centrally managed for each client in the Heads Up platform. This gives ThreeHealth a powerful solution for remote monitoring and tracking outcomes at the individual and aggregate levels.

    Business Challenge

    With customers all over the world, TFM needed a product to remotely track client progress, compile health metrics, and measure the effectiveness of their protocols over time. 

    TFM was seeking a comprehensive solution for data aggregation that could not only track fasting intervals but also measure other critical health parameters such as sleep, heart rate variability (HRV), weight, DEXA scans, and lab results. They needed a custom portal to integrate directly with their existing WordPress client portal for a seamless single-sign-on experience.

    Promoting client engagement is essential for businesses in the dynamic health and wellness sector. The team at TFM was seeking an accessible solution for their customers to self-monitor and track the positive impacts of the program on their wellbeing. Giving clients a platform to see real data and numbers for themselves leads to better outcomes and long-term customer retention.

    Technology Solution

    The goal for Heads Up, the personal health platform for tracking and analyzing health data, was to develop a custom solution to meet TFM’s diverse needs. In creating single-sign-on access to the HU platform, clients can now effortlessly monitor their health metrics, in addition to connecting with essential education and community resources, from within the TFM website.

    Heads Up Computer Login for Fasting

    Custom Lifestyle Dashboard

    Heads Up created the custom dashboard to be an organic component of the TFM member portal. Featuring a single sign-on experience, the HU integration is programmed with default tiles for tracking key fasting metrics and lab results, while the frontend interface gives clients a seamless user experience on their journey to health. 

    Custom Single Sign-on

    A cornerstone feature of HU’s technology solution is the custom single sign-on (SSO). Heads Up integrates with TFM’s WordPress website and client portal via SSO to create a seamlessly fluid, on-brand user experience. 

    Heads Up has the ability to integrate with any patient portal or existing membership platform. With a custom SSO, HU can open as an iframe within the existing webpage or in a separate tab from the client portal. TFM chose to have HU open in an adjacent tab from the main dashboard, allowing users to navigate multiple features of their website simultaneously.

    Like many clinics in the health and wellness space, TFM has an extensive database of electronic health records. With SSO, clients are automatically connected to their HU dashboard when logging into their TFM account. This secure and streamlined approach eliminates the need for clients to sign onto multiple apps and programs to achieve their health goals. 

    TFM Custom Dashboard

    The Heads Up dashboard, when accessed by TFM clients, is fully branded with TFM’s logos and color palettes, as well as being pre-programmed with the proper tiles for tracking fasting metrics alongside other lifestyle data (weight, blood sugar, nutrition, sleep etc.) and lab data (cholesterol levels, hemoglobin a1c etc). 

    The TFM program leads to substantial improvements in body composition and the new TFM dashboard lets clients see these changes in relation to other lifestyle metrics. 

    The goals The Fasting Method protocols are to regulate the insulin response, reduce medication dependency, and improve overall wellness through intermittent fasting. The Heads Up integration with TFM gives clients an easy way to track their most essential metrics of fasting.

    Heads Up on Mobile and Computer for Fasting

    Custom Dashboard Metrics

    TFM clients see the following metrics on their custom dashboard:

    • Fasting: Tracking fasting intervals gives insight into when the body is using stored sources of energy to fuel itself. Whether following an intermittent or extended fast, you are lowering blood sugar and body fat by using these stored sources of energy. The timer helps motivate users so they can see exactly how long they’ve been fasting and to learn how their other vital signs (sleep, blood glucose, ketones etc.) are changing.
    • Weight: Fasting has recently been rediscovered as a highly effective weight loss method, in addition to its many other healthy properties. Though weight may fluctuate throughout the fasting journey, measuring weight change over time is one baseline metrics of a healthy lifestyle.
    • Body Fat: Reducing overall body fat is key in improving fitness and avoiding health problems. Tracking changes in body fat is a tool to assess body composition and measure lean mass gains.
    • Blood Pressure: TFM’s method of intermittent fasting can lead to reduced blood pressure by reducing insulin and improving weight loss. Tracking blood is a metric of elasticity of the circulatory system, a key health indicator. 
    • Ketones: As blood glucose and insulin levels begin to drop during fasting, the body starts to burn fat and produce ketones. Measuring breath ketones indicates periods of nutritional ketosis versus glycolysis.The dashboard can sync ketone readings from Keto-Mojo, Ketonix and Biosense or can be entered manually.
    • Blood Glucose: Glucose and fat are the body’s main sources of energy. If glucose is not available, then the body will adjust by using fat, without any detrimental health effects. Tracking glucose gives insight into the metabolic stage that the body is in during fasting.
    • Sleep: Timing meals affects our circadian rhythms that exert a powerful influence over our sleep and wellbeing. Monitoring sleep and waking hours is helpful in timing intermittent fasting windows and ensuring proper rest. TFM clients can sync sleep data from Oura, Garmin, FitBit, Biostrap, Apple Watch and other industry-leading wearables.

    In addition to the above metrics, TFM clients have access to the full suite of Heads Up tracking modules and integrations. Tracking other metrics such as exercise, macros, or HRV can serve as additional markers of a healthy lifestyle.

    Custom Lab Results

    With a focus on data-driven results, the custom portal also allows clients to track their lab results as they embark on the journey with TFM. 

    Traditional lab tests such as lipid panels (cholesterol, HDL, LDL, etc.), metabolic markers (fasting insulin, Hba1c, etc.), and thyroid markers can all be tracked by clients. Clients can see for themselves how TFM is improving their markers of health and disease. Similarly, TFM experts can review these results with clients to help optimize and personalize the treatment protocol for each client. 

    Custom Lab Results for Fasting on Computer

    Conclusions

    Clear access to health data gives TFM clients the tools they need to set actionable goals and track improvement. The HU team designed a seamless user experience on both the frontend for clients and backend for practitioners.

    With an eye on customer retention, HU’s custom dashboard is designed with a clean look and intuitive feel to facilitate customer motivation and satisfaction. Whether accessing the dashboard on desktop, mobile, or tablet, clients and practitioners have an elegant and practical experience from sign in to sign out.

    Getting Back On Track: How Danny Davisson is Taking Back Control of His Health with Heads Up

    Getting Back On Track: How Danny Davisson is Taking Back Control of His Health with Heads Up

    How many of us find ourselves slipping in our health habits and fitness levels from time to time? Heads Up user Danny Davisson’s life has been filled with amazing athletic endurance achievements, such as completing five double centuries and climbing the infamous steep Mount Baldy on his bike. And at age 60, even though he isn’t where he used to be, Danny, an endurance athlete from Southern California, is using Heads Up to plan his future health goals, aiming to live a long life. 

    Maybe not all of us have been at the level that Danny Davisson’s been at as an endurance athlete.Yet how many of us have made strides in our fitness and health, progressed, yet at some point, especially as we age, lose some of that progress? That’s just the human experience. None of us, even the most dedicated biohackers and health optimizers can be 100% perfect. Whether it’s our diet, exercise regimen, sleep, stress management, productivity or performance, none of us can be fully on 24/7. Life has a way of throwing curveballs at you, just when you least suspect it. (A global pandemic, anyone?) 

    That’s what’s great about Heads Up. You can use your own health data to empower you, to motivate you. To see where you’ve been, where you are now. As the captain of your own ship, you can always chart a new course!  

    And that’s exactly what Danny is doing: Taking back control of his own health, his level of fitness and his life. 

    “I’m learning how to step back and say, ‘How’s my plan?’ Gotta go slow to go fast. I wanna train to live up to 95,” he shared with us in a recent interview. “Heads Up helps me bring data together that I care about to figure out where I’m going. It’s one of the main tools that I’m using to track where I’m headed from a health perspective.”

    Danny Davisson’s Health Journey

     

    In spite of his athlete lifestyle, Danny, an avid cyclist and ultra runner, running 7-minute miles, has faced lifelong chronic sinus infections. As a result, he had taken repeated antibiotics which has taken a toll on his body. To combat the infections, he had started a Mucusless diet of lean meats, fruits and vegetables from 2013 to 2016, which reduced his infections to once a year.

    In September 2016, Danny injured his right calf on a 45-mile High Sierra run, which led him to stop all running and cycling for two months. This was when he lost 30% of his fitness. 

    A month later, in October, after a 16-day Mediterranean cruise where he ate a lot of different foods, the sinus infection reared its ugly head and he was back to starting antibiotics again. From November to January, he experienced erratic heart rates without chest pressure. At that point, he couldn’t regain fitness or energy, continuing the antibiotics for his sinus infection, feeling like he wasn’t getting enough blood to his legs.  

    But since he began a low-carb keto diet in February 2017, he’s been antibiotic free, showing the power of diet to impact your health. 

    Even though Danny hasn’t regained the fitness level he used to be at in 2016, he trusts that he has a plan. “I’m not where I want to be but I’m working on it,” he says with confidence.

    Danny Davisson Heads Up Health Dashboard

    Taking Back Control of His Health with Heads Up

    Ever since he heard about Heads Up on Jimmy Moore’s podcast around 2017, shortly after he began eating low-carb, Danny has been using Heads Up because it allows him to bring together everything he uses to stay healthy — Garmin for sleep and steps, his blood tests and medical records via Labcorps and Kaiser, and more — allowing him to see trends in his health.

    “Heads Up is great for me, it’s really cool. What I love is that you can bring all the sources of data together to see the trends. Where I’m at. Where I’ve been. My primary use for Heads Up is seeing my bloodwork all in one place. Cholesterol, glucose, triglycerides, blood pressure and more.”

    Danny takes his blood pressure everyday, seeing it on his dashboard, along with the other health data he’s interested in such as those mentioned above.

    How Danny Davisson is Using Heads Up to Plan His Health Goals Now

    Danny’s main goal now is to get healthy, to get back to being able to live a normal life. He plans to order additional blood tests, look at the trends, and share his Heads Up data with his nutritionist, who can help him fine-tune his diet. 

    This winter, Danny plans to focus on a carnivore-style elimination diet. He is really looking forward to using Heads Up to see how his body responds. He’s even bought a sous-vide machine that he loves, so he can cook up the most tender rib-eye steaks, Shawn Baker-style. He plans to get blood tests before and after switching to carnivore keto eating to see what’s changed, using Heads Up to spot the trends. Another strong focus right now is looking at sleep trends using his Garmin that he connects to Heads Up.

    To get even more power out of Heads Up, Danny can use our graphing feature on the web app to graph and correlate up to SIX health metrics. With his new goal of trying out the carnivore diet, Danny can then monitor how this new lifestyle modification is impacting other health markers, such as fasting glucose and weight. Or even how this new diet may be affecting inflammation markers such as CRP or cholesterol markers, since it’s easy to correlate with his medical records to spot trends over time. 

     

    Keto Tracking with Head Up Analyzer

    When one of our team members stacked 30-days of a nose-to-tail carnivore diet with a prolonged fast near the end of January, she wanted to see how these two self-experiments impacted her fasting glucose, ketones, and weight, her last six months captured in this graph on the left. It’s interesting to see how glucose takes a nose dive and ketones rocket upwards, while weight begins to drop after sandwiching a week-long fast between carnivore-eating.

    How an Innovative Cryotherapy Center Uses Data to Personalize Client Recovery Programs

    How an Innovative Cryotherapy Center Uses Data to Personalize Client Recovery Programs

    Huemn is an innovative health and wellness cryotherapy center focused on providing clients with a non-invasive, drug-free, natural way of recovering from athletics, injuries, pain and inflammation. Using a variety of non-toxic, natural interventions that trigger the human body’s innate healing systems, such as cryotherapy, photobiomodulation, oxygen therapy, neurotherapy, and lymphatic drainage, the company’s value is in bringing advanced, all-natural remedies to clients at an affordable price.

    The Challenge

    Although the popularity of natural healing therapies is on the rise as many people seek alternatives to surgery and medication, it’s not uncommon for such health trends to come and go quickly. The Huemn team knew that in order to build a successful, long-term business, however, they needed an easy and predictable way to monitor the positive impact that their therapies were providing their clients. Such a solution would not only demonstrate the value of the client’s investment, but it would also allow them to cross-reference the benefits of their healing modalities with other health metrics such as sleep quality, inflammation levels and heart rate variability (HRV).

    The Solution

    Huemn found Heads Up, a personal health platform that makes it super easy to track and analyze health data for actionable insights on therapies and lifestyle changes that most positively impact one’s health. The goal of the project was to design a customized solution for Huemn that made it possible to track and validate their cutting-edge proprietary programs and protocols at the aggregate group and individual levels. The solution comprised of two components: a backend system  that enabled the Huemn team to customize their protocols and track client sessions; and a frontend interface for their clients to be able to easily add their favorite health apps and devices, view their health data in one single dashboard and track their improvements over time using Huemn’s healing programs.

    Data-driven Programs & Protocols

    One of the core principles of Huemn’s approach to recovery is supporting the body’s natural systems wholistically and synergistically. To achieve this, Huemn provides personalized programs for clients based on regular sessions of cryotherapy, oxygen therapy, neurotherapy and photobiomodulation, to name a few.

    To validate the effectiveness of these four cutting-edge protocols, Heads Up built custom modules that made it easy to input data for each client session and track the progress they made toward achieving their recovery goals. With this data in hand, Huemn’s team of wellness experts are able to analyze the data for key patterns and trends on the particular lifestyle interventions that are having the most positive impact on a client’s ability to become fully recovered and rejuvenated.

    Click on the images below to view customized recovery modules in detail.

     

    With Huemn’s core protocols and input modules in place, it became much easier for practitioners to store client session data and track their progress over time on each protocol. For more advanced analysis, Heads Up team developed an analytics tool that made it super easy to analyze the impact each of Huemn’s protocols were having on their client’s physiology and recovery status.

    Client Engagement Tools For Better Outcomes

    With practitioner tools in place, the Heads Up team designed a beautifully simple end-to-end experience. The goal was to leverage user data to drive client retention and accountability for better health outomes. This comprised of personalized dashboards that displayed Huemn’s core recovery protocols, and weekly progress reports to drive client engagement and intrinsic motivation.

     

    Client dashboards were meticuosly designed to visually present a user’s health data in the most easy to understand way possible.
