What the partnership offers
OurPath in partnership with Accu-Chek® offers people the opportunity to sign themselves up to the digital programme. Users are assigned their own health coach who assists with goal-setting, provides tailored nutritional advice, daily encouragement and evidence-based education articles via the smartphone app. Additionally, the app enables small groups of users to connect with each other and their coach, ensuring support is available in a flexible way to fit into users’ daily lives. The programme content promotes positive mindset shifts and addresses a range of important health topics including nutrition, sleep, physical activity, and stress management. Included in the programme price is a starter kit containing valuable tools including: smart weighing scales*; a wearable activity tracker*; recipe book and handbook to support users as they progress through the programme.
OurPath were announced as one of 5 digital providers of the Healthier You: NHS Diabetes Prevention Programme in November 2017. The NHS programme is running in 8 pilot areas in England and up to 5,000 patients will be recruited over a six month period, and will be given access to the digital interventions for up to 12 months.5
The partnership with Roche Diabetes Care will see the OurPath programme offered to the wider population at a much quicker pace. Anybody who would like to invest in building healthier habits for themselves is able to sign up for the programme online, and thousands of people across the UK have already taken up the mantle.
