Ideas (Clinical trials and evidence)

Innovation 'Elevator Pitch':
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
Overview of Innovation:
Liva Healthcare is a proven solution provider for NHS England, Healthier you, Digital Diabetes Prevention Programme pilot. 
  • An advanced yet intuitive digital platform fully approved for use with the NHS (a service user app (front end), and a dashboard command (backend) for health coaches)
  • A patient centric approach in platform and programme design
  • An expert coaching team with significant experience in impacting lifestyle change
  • Individualised coaching services delivered predominantly digitally, but with a differentiating, relationship-building face-to-face Initial Assessment.
  • A structured education approach encompassing a modulated library of content with individualised lifestyle advise, provided by a leading general practitioner in diabetes management.
  • An evidence-based and approach to behaviour change and diabetes management.
  • Strongly governed clinically by frameworks and evidence-based care pathways. 
  • A proven and effective team of experts who ensure optimal standards of implementation.
  • An attractive solution that is economically sustainable with staged fee structures linked to continued engagement.
  • Clinically proven, with users maintaining 7kg of weight loss after 20 months and €2,000+ savings in societal costs per year per diabetic. 
  • Scalable and efficent with more patients to be handled with less resources. 
Liva has achieved success through refining and adjusting the programme based on clinical evidence, coach feedback and patient evaluation.  We base the programme and all of its interventions on the acknowledgement of the reality of people’s lives, working on their terms, not ours.
  • Liva’s design philosophy is about intuitive solutions, easy to understand and use, even for non-digital natives.
  • It offers access across all popular platforms such as iOS and Android in addition to any computer or tablet. It has been particularly important for us to design with lower socio-economic groups in mind so - for example - dietary tracking can be done via simple photographs of meals rather than calorie counting. The same intelligence applies to the option of sending video messages as an alternative to text options in order to lower a barrier for usage.
  • Liva has established protocols to deliver appropriate levels of intervention based on need with specific emphasis around fluid, rolling engagement monitoring and to help service users get back on track and recover their progress if newly developed behaviours are disturbed.

Benefit to NHS:
Tackling chronic diseases
Liva Healthcare tackles chronic lifestyle diseases such as Type 2 diabetes, obesity and heart disease 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 Healthcare helps NHS prevent Type 2 diabetes. The NHS chose Liva as a provider for the pilot of the digital stream of its Healthier You: NHS Diabetes Prevention Programme, whereby 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 of up to 14Ibs in weight in under 8 weeks, improved health and some are no longer pre-diabetic! 

Driving change through the power of relationships 
Liva Healthcare's innovative platform has been built 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 Healthcare can demonstrate fantastic real-world results for patients and healthcare services.
  1. 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 400 patients without impacting patient outcomes.
  2. On the Liva programme, clinical research found Liva users maintained 7kg of weight loss after 20 months.
  3. The Liva Healthcare solution has been found to create €2,000+ savings in societal costs per year per diabetic.
Liva offers a turn-key solution with a flexible deployment approach adaptable to local CCG needs and requirements.

Critical Success Factors in preventing Type II Diabetes

Patient-centric thinking to deliver accessible technology and expertise
It is in the experience of Liva that changing behaviour requires a patient-centric approach, hence why we have made this the primary goal of both the coaching platform and service user programme including the app. We find it of crucial importance to: -
 
  • Establish a relationship of trust and empathy between service user and health coach
  • Set realistic goals
  • Support continuous motivation
  • Provide supporting education
  • Ensure that all touch-points between service user and health coach are as simple and intuitive as possible. 
Liva has achieved success through refining and adjusting the programme based on clinical evidence, coach feedback and patient evaluation.  We base the programme and all of its interventions on the acknowledgement of the reality of people’s lives, working on their terms, not ours.
  • Liva’s design philosophy is about intuitive solutions, easy to understand and use, even for non-digital natives.

The same intelligence applies to the option of sending video messages as an alternative to text options in order to lower a barrier for usage.
  • The programme can be made available in any language for a diverse population wherey English isn't necessarily their first language
  • Highly trained lifestyle coaches are recruited to match the demographic area being served.
  • Liva has established protocols to deliver appropriate levels of intervention based on need with specific emphasis around fluid, rolling engagement monitoring and to help service users get back on track and recover their progress if newly developed behaviours are disturbed.
