Your Root Coach
Your Root Coach is a real person, a coach and a friend, who understands you and helps you reach your health goals. You'll also receive feedback from Root's AI Health Coach, whenever you need it!
If you find healthy eating to be a challenge, you’re not alone. 52% of Americans find this task to be more difficult than doing taxes. The good news is that with the help of Root’s AI Health Coach, you’ll be able to conquer all of your health goals— whether you’re seeking a healthier diet, a more active lifestyle, or help managing a chronic condition.
Your AI Health Coach is here to listen, understand, and remember everything you tell it. If you’re in the grocery store and are unsure what to buy for dinner, go ahead and ask your AI Health Coach. It will recommend recipes based on the foods you enjoy, and will provide a shopping list to ensure you can easily pick up anything you need to make your home cooked meal.
Root can monitor how you’re feeling and respond to your needs. You’ll receive personalized feedback from both your AI Health Coach and your in-app clinician. You are at the center of your own care, and you'll receive the advice and support you need at the times when it matters most: like when you’re craving a late-night snack, when you’re going out to eat and need a healthy suggestion, when your blood sugar is low, or when you need motivation to go on a run.
The more you use Root, the better Root will understand you.
With Root, your clinician is a text away. Together, you can set a personal plan to start you on a path toward change. Your clinician will be there for you at every step.
