Abstract

Purpose. To report the reach of Take Charge Lite (TCL), a lifestyle weight management program. Methods. Eight months of data were used to determine prescription reach (number of patients receiving a TCL prescription divided by total eligible), visit reach (number of patients with a TCL visit divided by total receiving a prescription), and total reach (number of patients with a TCL visit divided by total eligible). Results. TCL prescription reach was 42.3% (1,071 prescriptions/2,528 eligible). There were 411 TCL first visits for an average visit reach of 38% (411/1,071). Total reach for the full period was 16% (411/2,528). Total reach was highest among female, middle-aged, and Black patients. Conclusion. There is potential for public health impact from such efforts but issues of reach require further planning and evaluation.
