The two-year programme will see Westbank, an Exeter-based charity, provide a face-to-face service while Liva Healthcare will offer personalised health coaching and digital support through its app.
The aim of the programme is to reduce or delay the progression of Type 2 diabetes and cardiovascular disease for high risk groups. The programme will treat patients with a BMI over 25 and those with raised HbA1c measurements.
Simon Pickup, UK managing director at Liva Healthcare said: ‘Our continued success within the UK sees more patients receive support at the touch of a button. Liva’s scalable platform enables long term lifestyle change for patients but also drives better outcomes at a lower cost’.
‘While delivering value is increasingly important for healthcare providers, we are ensuring that the outcomes for patients remain at the forefront of our service,’ Pickup added.
Liva Healthcare is currently used in the UK, Denmark and Sweden and is active in 17 UK Clinical Commissioning Groups.
