JLI is experimenting with how digital health services can reduce the burden of non-communicable diseases (NCDs) by developing a personalized lifestyle program aimed at supporting diabetes types 2 patients in changing their lifestyle to reverse their diabetic condition.
“The Reverse Diabetes project developed an application which provides digital health services against diabetes in India. It is currently rolled out and being tested in two hospital sites in India.”Alexander BoersProject Lead
The aim of this project is to:
- develop a personalized lifestyle program aimed at supporting diabetes types 2 patients in changing their lifestyle so as to reverse their diabetic condition.
- demonstrate how digital technology can be utilized to deliver lifestyle as a medicine, to illustrate how digital health services can reduce the burden of non-communicable diseases.
- activate partners and stakeholders to further test and invest in these digital services.
This project is modeled to the Dutch Reverse Diabetes Project (Keer Diabetes Om) and digitally adapted for the Indian context. JLI co-developed an application to digitalize and translate the Reverse Diabetes Program. The program is rolled out in two hospital sites in India (The Asia Heart Centre in Mumbai and the Eternal Heart Centre in Jaipur). Results from these two sites will be analyzed to understand the reversal, adherence and patient engagement, and publicized through conferences, events, publications etc.
