New Voice-Enabled Cellular BP Monitoring, Medication Incentives, and Data Partnerships Help Silence Noisy Healthcare™
Mountain View, CA /PRNewswire/ - Livongo, the first company to apply health signals to empower people with chronic conditions to live better and healthier lives, today announced the first voice-enabled, at-home, cellular blood pressure monitoring system, free medication incentives for eligible members, and a number of new data science capabilities and partnerships. These innovations support the company's introduction of Applied Health Signals, a new category of technologies and capabilities that for the first time combines data science, behavior enablement, and clinical impact to help make it easier for people with chronic conditions to stay healthy.
"It's exciting to introduce products that change the way people think about and experience chronic conditions. We did that in diabetes, with unlimited free strips, cellular-connected meters, insights, and care accessible 24 hours a day anywhere, all of which made it easier for our members to stay healthy. Now we're doing the same thing for hypertension," said Amar Kendale, Livongo's Chief Product Officer. "By delivering blood pressure feedback in a new relevant way and by driving positive behavior change with medication incentives, we are reducing the confusion, complexity, and cost of healthcare for our members. We are making healthcare less noisy and paving the way for meaningful and measurable change. That's what Applied Health Signals is all about."
Health signals are created by an individual's behaviors, health status, lifestyle, and preferences. These signals can guide individuals and their care providers to proactively make changes to optimize clinical outcomes. Too often, people living with chronic conditions are presented with too many health data points to take meaningful action. Livongo quiets the noise by aggregating, interpreting, applying, and iterating (AI+AITM) health signals to make healthy behaviors more accessible.
The new product offerings and partnerships, which harness the power of Applied Health Signals and enable AI+AI, include:
"I could not be more excited to be working with industry leaders and innovators like Lilly, Abbott, and Medisafe," said Livongo's Chief Medical Officer Dr. Jennifer Schneider M.D., M.S. "These partnerships will provide a wealth of new data into our Applied Health Signals engine, and will further our ability to apply actionable, personalized, and timely health signals to our members. We are already achieving measurable clinical outcomes, and as more data comes into our engine, our fly wheel begins to spin faster, and we have the ability to affect more behavior change and improve clinical outcomes for more people with chronic conditions."
Livongo's voice-enabled blood pressure system and co-pay incentive programs will be made available to members in 2019. For more information on Applied Health Signals and Livongo, visit www.livongo.com.
