Read the case study
Changing Health’s intervention programme to prevent Type 2 diabetes combines new technology and behavioural change experts to encourage people to make long term, positive lifestyle changes. It has been adopted as part of the Healthier You NHS Diabetes Prevention Programme (DPP). The personalised, digital programme uses comprehensive research in metabolism, diabetes and behavioural science. It combines bespoke, one-to-one lifestyle coaching (delivered over the phone), with a customisable course of structured diabetes education (delivered via an app). People at risk of diabetes learn how they can fit simple lifestyle changes into their lives and receive personalised support.
"Changing Health’s programme was a clear and outstanding winner! They demonstrated good use of technology and the patients were reviewed regularly to check their compatibility with the programme as it progressed. The project was planned and executed carefully throughout, with excellent attention to detail. It had good safety consideration and looks to also be cost effective. Changing Health showed a clear commitment to deliver a sustainable solution for positive patient outcomes, including preventing Type 2 Diabetes through patient empowerment. This is the future of diabetes prevention!"
