Worksites overweight/obesity control/prevention trial
Purpose. The “Worksites overweight/obesity prevention/control trial” (04/01/05 – 09/29/07) is a CDC-sponsored 30-month, 4-arm (3 Test/1 Control), small employer (51-249 regular employee) cluster-randomized control trial conducted at the University of Vermont in partnership with Blue Cross Blue Shield of Vermont. The objective is to gauge the relative effectiveness—compared to no program at all—of 3 distinct program approaches (“Individual,” “Environmental,” “Combined”) to reducing employee behavioral health risk factors (unhealthy diet, physical inactivity, unmitigated stress, tobacco addiction). Preliminary Findings. Baseline to 1st Follow-up (6-8 mo) readings on clinical outcomes (run December 2006 on 647 participants for whom these data were then available) show across-the-board declines. Across the “Combined” (158 participants), “Individual” (165), “Environmental” (179), and Control (145) arms, respectively, unit declines were (BMI) -0.3, -0.22, -0.05, -0.21; (Waist circumference) -1.83, -1.75, -2.28, -0.65; (Weight) -1.56, -1.01, -1.68, -0.52; (LDL) -15.09, -7.34, -9.56, -9.32; (Cholesterol) -28.04, -17.76, -22.77, -21.32; (Glucose) -4.24, -1.78, -0.31, -3.76; (Blood pressure) -8.41, -6.93, -10.49, -5.27. Discussion. Between Test and Control arm participants, the latter declined (always at a < rate) right along with the former: though they received no wellness programming they did receive the same baseline and follow-up clinical readings as the former. Among Test arm participants, those in the “Combined” dropped the most on 5 of 7 outcomes. Between “Individual” and “Environmental” arm participants, the latter dropped more on 5 of 7 outcomes. The strongest Test arm intervention was the “Combined,” followed by the “Environmental.” Conclusion. Small firms might well pursue the “Environmental” approach, alone and in combination with the “Individual,” to reducing employee health risk factors.

Increasing Physical Activity Among Adults 50 and Older
An innovative, health promotion program to invite Rhode Island residents age 50 and older to participate in a state-wide physical activity campaign. Recruited 973 “Look Up to Fitness” participants who were surveyed pre and post with outcomes and satisfaction surveys and recorded physical activity diaries. The program achieved increased physical activity levels in this population including overall physical activity, aerobic activity, increased muscle strength and endurance and a reduction in BMI from 24.7 to 23.3 kg/m3. Satisfaction survey indicated a positive outlook on continuing physical activity and an overall enjoyment of the program.

Improving Hypertension Care Using the Internet
The aim of this Phase 1 SBIR was to develop and test and formatively test a working prototype of an interactive website with the following major functions, based on consensus guidelines for hypertension care from the Sixth Report of the Joint National Committee on Prevention, Detection, Evaluation, and Treatment of High Blood Pressure (JNC6), sponsored by the National Institutes of Health: 1) to proactively query patients, before each visit with a health care provider, to understand what hypertension care evidence-based guidelines suggest they are due, 2) to provide brief, tailored, on-screen feedback to patients regarding the hypertension care they are due, 3) to provide brief, tailored, faxed reminders to health care providers, timed to coincide with the patients' visit, regarding the hypertension care they are due. This expands on the current work of Green Lights, Inc. in developing a single website, www.myexpertdoctor.com, where patients would have access to computer tailored, guideline-based recommendations, for the management of the most common health conditions in the US.
Role: Sub-contractor: recruited hypertension subjects for Dr. Pignatelli and Sciamanna from BCBSRI with PI and Co-I.

Improving Osteoarthritis Care Using the Internet
The aim of this Phase 1 SBIR was to develop and test and formatively test a working prototype of an interactive website with the following major functions, based on consensus guidelines for osteoarthritis care from the American College of Rheumatology Subcommittee on Osteoarthritis Guidelines: 1) to proactively query patients, before each visit with a health care provider, to understand what osteoarthritis care the consensus guidelines suggest they are due, 2) to provide brief, tailored, onscreen feedback to patients regarding the osteoarthrits care they are due, 3) to provide brief, tailored, faxed reminders to health care providers, timed to coincide with the patients' visit, regarding the osteoarthritis care they are due. This expands on the current work of Green Lights, Inc. in developing a single website, www.myexpertdoctor.com, where patients would have access to computer tailored, guideline-based recommendations, for the management of the most common health conditions in the US. We believe this approach has significant potential for disseminating evidence-based consensus guidelines for osteoarthrits and therefore have a significant and positive impact on osteoarthritis-related disability in the United States. The prototype interactive website has the potential to be marketed to the following three parties: 1) patients will want to use the system to learn what to expect and what questions to ask during their doctor visits, 2) health care providers will want to use the system to streamline their care of chronic conditions such as osteoarthritis and be sure that it is evidence-based and 3) managed care organizations will be interested in the potential of the system as a quality improvement initiative possibly to satisfy requirements from the National Committee for Quality Assurance, [Assurance, 1998 #249].
