Driving positive change through lasting behavioural changes, join us as we uncover the secrets behind this award-winning firm’s success as part of the 2019 Healthcare and Pharmaceutical Awards. Used by healthcare, private insurance and pharma companies including NHS England and AXA PPP Healthcare, Liva’s platform offers a program designed to deliver lasting change for those living with chronic conditions. Founded in 2015 by the entrepreneurs behind the successful e-health company, this innovative firm continues to make real, tangible difference to people’s lives today. Through an app and desktop service, Liva focuses on preventing chronic lifestyle conditions such as type 2 diabetes, obesity and heart disease. Patients are connected with health coaches who help implement goals to change behaviours, such as setting smart goals, self-monitoring, lifestyle tracking, motivational tools, video communication with the coach, and an online support group with other users. It is also used by healthcare providers to drive patient engagement, clinical outcomes and healthcare delivery efficiency with real-time data insight. Pharmaceutical companies use Liva to help manage patients who have been prescribed medication for their chronic conditions. The app can help encourage those patients to take their medication at the appropriate times, as well as combine that with exercise to maximise the healthcare potential. The statistics don’t lie, either. Where Liva has been used, 85% of clients have seen reduced haemoglobin A1C, with 40% of pre-diabetics reversing their course after six months. Average weight loss over a six-month period for clients is twelve and a half pounds, and on average, over two thousand euros has been saved per diabetic clients. On the Liva platform, each supervisor handles up to five hundred patients per year. Uniquely, Liva is a hybrid model of technological analysis and human interaction. Standing out from other health tech innovations that simply rely on technology alone, this company connect patients to their own physical health coach. Working together on a number of aerobic sessions, the relationship between patient and coach continues throughout the duration of the program for maximum benefit. In order for Liva to stay at the forefront of the digital healthcare industry, the company regularly take part in research projects. Often collaborating with universities across the world, the firm are able to measure the success of digital tools in treating a wide range of conditions. The firm recently won funding to begin a research project looking at digital lifestyle tools to prevent and reverse type 2 diabetes for pregnant women. This will see increased collaboration with other experts such as University College Dublin and Bristol University. Currently operating in Denmark, United Kingdom, Sweden and Canada, the firm’s growing momentum will allow for expansion into more European countries such as France and Ireland, as well as more international growth in Singapore. Alongside the geographical expansion, the firm are also looking to partner with wearable tech companies in a bid to upgrade their platform with more accurate measurements for patients. Fundamentally, the success behind Liva is down to their hard work in improving the lives of those who are living with chronic conditions. The company’s innovative technology and health programs help facilitate ongoing personalised health coaching through an intuitive app, building strong bonds between the healthcare professional and the client.
