Diabetes Professional Care Charity of the year, X-PERT Health, has appointed digital healthcare agency, Pulse, to transform their ground-breaking diabetes education programme onto a digital platform.
The new platform, which will be accessible via an app or website, will enable X-PERT Health to scale up its current group based programme, allowing hundreds of thousands more patients to develop the knowledge, understanding and confidence to make lifestyle changes to prevent or manage Type 2 diabetes, further strengthening X-PERT Health’s ‘educate not medicate’ philosophy.

The educational content will be interactive and engaging, including animated videos, games and quizzes to support discovery learning in a fun and easy-to-use way. The digital programme will also include features such as real-time tracking for diet, physical activity, health results, medication requirement and mood and sleep – helping users to manage and improve their lifestyle and health. This information can then be shared with the users’ healthcare professional as part of their regular check-up.
Users will also have continued support from a 24/7 chatbot; group chats; access to the X-PERT health forum, and the ability to book a call with an X-PERT Health coach. In addition, users will be able to access a large database of recipes, tailored for patients with Type 2 diabetes, and they will also be able to submit their own recipes which can be shared with other patients.

“We’re delighted to have been chosen to take X-PERT Health’s diabetes education programme into the digital space, and we are very much looking forward to working together with the X-PERT Health team to support patients in preventing or managing Type 2 diabetes.”
