The cellular-enabled monitoring system allows blood pressure data to transfer seamlessly from ‘Cuff to Cloud’TM. Members receive personalized, insight-driven messaging (insights and Health NudgesTM) based on blood pressure data and trends. Members are also supported in real-time through digital alerts and virtual coaching from a team of licensed professionals certified in chronic-condition management.
“Just as we did with diabetes, Livongo wants to make it easier for people to stay healthy by checking their blood pressure, receiving real-time personalized feedback, sharing the information with their physician and other members of their connected care community from home, thereby avoiding a rise in blood pressure that can come with visiting a doctor,” said Amar Kendale, Chief Product Officer, Livongo. “We’re proud to introduce the first cellular-enabled blood pressure monitoring system to market in the U.S. and to add this capability to our comprehensive platform for people with all kinds of chronic conditions. This allows us to treat the whole person and the challenges they face in a seamless manner.”
Eighty-one percent of people in the initial cohort, who have both diabetes and hypertension, reduced their blood pressure. Individuals with mean blood pressures greater than 130/80 decreased their systolic blood pressure by nine mmHg on average1 lowering their risk of stroke and heart attacks by at least 35% and 25%, respectively2. In addition to strong clinical results, participants really liked the product, measured by a net promoter score of +76. Many of the early adopters of the solution also reported high adoption, with rates of 60 percent of eligible members enrolling in the program in the first 30 days1.
“As the first organization with an integrated offering that is delivering both clinical and financial results in the marketplace, Livongo is leading the way in empowering people to manage multiple chronic conditions,” said Glen Tullman, Chief Executive Officer of Livongo. “Our early results show that by addressing the health of the whole person with a personalized approach and a seamless experience, we are making a difference in the lives of people who need it most.”
