LIVINGLIVING

they'll work together with a health coach

to set and achieve realistic goals. They'll

learn how to build balanced meals and

eat more mindfully, increase activity levels

by tracking steps with other users, work

on tackling negative thought patterns and

how to work around setbacks. Through

the app, there's also access to a support

group, and daily articles which help to

guide users towards their personal goal. A

mentor is on hand to answer any queries

and help to keep people accountable until

new habits become routine.

After the 12 weeks, there's an option

to stay on the programme. For £9.99

a month, users can continue getting

support from their health coach, track

progress and receive motivational weekly

articles.

OurPath CEO Chris Edson says,

"Given that Type 2 diabetes is largely

a lifestyle disease, behavioural change

is the essence of the solution to this

problem, and digital is a fantastic way

of effecting behavioural change at scale.

What helps to drive behavioural change is

human interaction, which is a core aspect

of the OurPath programme. We also try

to go further than just looking at diet and

exercise, with large parts focusing on

things like sleep, stress management,

and mental health. Having a real human

as a health coach can help to pinpoint

challenges in these areas, and it's why

we believe what we're doing is more akin

to providing a digital service, rather than

simply an app. Some of the emerging

results have indicated 40% of people with

Type 2 on our programme have put their

diabetes into remission at three months.

These results have reinforced our belief

that digital innovation can help address

the challenges faced by the NHS, and

we're delighted to be demonstrating

how technology can make behavioural

interventions more engaging, more

scalable, and more seamlessly integrated

into people's daily lives."

Qstream

Qstream is a micro-learning solution that's

scientifically proven to make people better

at what they do. Developed at Harvard,

Qstream says it 'increases knowledge

retention up to 170%, changes

behaviours and results in an average

17% improvement in job proficiency.'

In the workplace, the platform creates

bite-sized, scenario-based challenges to

improve job skills in just a few minutes a

day, while also highlighting opportunities

for managers to know who, what and

when to coach. Dr Kerfoot, a Qstream

founder, and his team developed a

Qstream specific solution as part of a

worldwide competition - the Ascensia

Diabetes Challenge, which sets out

to find innovative digital solutions to

support Type 2 diabetes management.

A clinical study found that people with

Type 2 who were randomly assigned to

use Qstream had far greater reductions

in HbA1c than those who received the

same information in a booklet. Out of 116

entries, The Ascencia Diabetes Challenge

named Qstream as one of six finalists and

awarded a runner-up prize of €30,000.

Spirit Healthcare

Leicester-based company Spirit

Healthcare delivers an education course

called Empower in response to needs

identified within the NHS. Founder Chris

Barker says, "Our Empower courses have

resulted in hugely improved understanding

of lifestyle choices for the vast majority of

people who attend them with a significant

improvement shown in measured clinical

outcomes. According to a National

Diabetes Audit published by Diabetes UK,

less than 10% of people referred actually

make it onto a course and complete it.

We realised that simple things like hiring

the room, setting the room up and basic

communications with patients themselves

was something we had to provide for the

NHS as part of the service."

Spirithealthcare works with the local

health services. They give referrals to

patients to attend the course, they are

put on the Empower database and from

which we can send them reminders and

prompts to book a course online. Says

Barker, "We are able to show that 45%

of people who are referred to our courses

not only attend but complete them."
