Company: Liva Healthcare Contact: Alex Ballantyne Address: 12 David Mews, Marylebone, W1U 6EG Phone: 020 3637 7310 Founded in 2014, Liva’s platform facilitates ongoing personalised health coaching through an intuitive app, building strong bond between coach, GP and patient. Its focus lies on tackling chronic illnesses, such as Type 2 diabetes, obesity and heart disease, by driving behaviour change.   Used by public healthcare, private insurance and pharma companies including NHS England, AXA PPP Healthcare and Copenhagen Municipality, the app is multilingual across several languages, proven to work efficiently across all socio-economic backgrounds and is capable of engaging groups normally hard to reach. It is based upon evidence that 9 to 18 months of continuous patient engagement makes new habits and behaviours stick. Tackling chronic diseases Liva tackles chronic lifestyle diseases such as Type 2 diabetes. Liva does this by connecting patients with a personal health coach through an app to track and monitor the patient’s health goals. The app is based on strong evidence that has shown lifestyle interventions, delivered digitally, can lead to long-term lifestyle change. These changes can prevent the onset, and even reverse the diagnosis, of lifestyle diseases such as Type 2 diabetes. Digital innovation for the NHS Liva is used by the NHS to help treat Type 2 diabetes. Type 2 diabetes costs the NHS £8.8 billion per year – 9% of its total budget. The NHS chose Liva as a provider for the pilot of the digital stream of its Healthier You: NHS Diabetes Prevention Programme. GPs can refer patients at risk of developing Type 2 diabetes to use the Liva app. Patients using this service have already been reporting weight loss, improved health and some are no longer pre-diabetic! Driving change through the power of relationships The team behind Liva Healthcare built the innovative platform with both patients and healthcare professionals in mind. For digital health to be effective, research has shown algorithms aren’t enough. Liva Healthcare’s service is built on the evidence that creating close relationships between healthcare professionals and their patients can lead to long-lasting behaviour and lifestyle change. Liva Healthcare’s technology therefore facilitates healthcare professionals in doing their jobs, rather than aiming to replace them. Driving efficiency and patient outcomes Liva Healtchare is generating fantastic real-world results for patients and healthcare services. Firstly, Liva Healthcare’s platform enables more patients to be handled with less resources. Using the Liva Healthcare service, health professionals are able to work with up to 500 patients without impacting patient outcomes. Secondly, clinical research found Liva users maintained 7kg of weight loss after 20 months. Finally, the Liva Healthcare solution has been found to create € 2,000+ savings in societal costs per year per diabetic. Ultimately, Liva helps people prevent and reverse chronic diseases and manage lifestyle challenges by scaling meaningful human relationships using technology. At the same time, Liva drives efficiency and reduces costs for healthcare providers and payers. These ambitious goals will remain the firm’s ongoing focuses as it looks towards a bright future.
