The Liva app is a digital platform to help you manage conditions such as diabetes, heart problems and obesity, and make changes to your lifestyle. Using patient self-monitoring and expert guidance from a dedicated coach, Liva lets you closely monitor your health and provides trusted support along the way.
Who is it suitable for?
Anyone suffering from chronic lifestyle conditions who wants to improve their health.
How does it work?
Liva lets you use a range of tools to monitor aspects of your health, from physical activity and sleep patterns to blood pressure levels and lung function. This allows you to track data about your condition and lifestyle on graphs, receive customised lifestyle plans, and access forums that provide relevant information and support.
Online consultations and the ability to monitor patients remotely via the app mean healthcare professionals can help more people, more easily. You can also share your information with your GP, giving you greater control over the management of your health.
Liva is currently being trialled in the North East London and Humber Coast and Vale regions, where it is available free through GP referral.
How do I access it?
The app is free to download from the App Store and Google Play, but you must be enrolled in a programme from your healthcare provider to receive online support.
