Liva Healthcare vinder ny stor digital kontrakt med NHS England i kampen mod diabetes-epidemien


Den fremadstormende danske start-up inden for digital sundhed Liva Healthcare har vundet en ny afgørende kontrakt med det britiske sundhedsvæsen NHS England for at bremse væksten i diabetes i England.

”Vi er stolte over, at NHS efter halvandet års samarbejde om et pilotprojekt i to regioner med at bremse diabetes og overvægt, har valgt os som leverandør, når projektet nu skal skalleres markant op til ca. 200.000 patienter årligt. Det er en kæmpe landvinding for os og en vigtig blåstempling,” siger CEO i Liva Healthcare, Kristoffer From.

Liva Healthcare beskæftiger 30 medarbejdere på sine to kontorer i København og London. Liva har vundet NHS-kontrakten sammen med sin britiske partner LWTC som ét af i alt fem konsortier, der deler de 200.000 prædiabetes-patienter årligt mellem sig.

Liva Healthcare skal nu levere personlig coaching af patienterne via Livas digitale platform for at bremse udviklingen af diabetes og svær overvægt.

Livas forskning viser, at man via sin platform kan rulle prædiabetes tilbage for over 30% af patienterne gennem personlig digital coaching om deres livsstil.

”Oprindeligt satsede NHS England på 100.000 patienter årligt, men er så overbeviste om, at dette er vejen frem, at de for kort tid siden besluttede at fordoble antallet af patienter,” forklarer Kristoffer From.

Liva annoncerede for nylig en investering i selskabets internationale vækst på 60 mio kr. fra tre tyske venturefonde, MIGSanto Venture Capital og Digital Health Ventures.
