The multi-award-winning Low Carb Program app is enabling patients to access the app using their NHS login.
Low Carb Program provides structured education and long-term behaviour change support through health coaching, and personalised user experience to support patients to achieve self-selected health goals by reducing the amount of carbohydrates to 130 grams a day. The app is used by patients with obesity, pre-diabetes, type 2 diabetes, non-alcoholic fatty liver disease and polycystic ovarian syndrome.
NHS login is a single, secure login that enables you to swiftly access health and social care apps and websites wherever you see the NHS login button. NHS login has been created by the NHS to give people a convenient way to access different healthcare apps and websites through one single login.
Ian Phoenix, NHS Digital Director of Citizen Health Technology, said: “NHS login gives patients a single, secure login for their health and care apps and websites, allowing them quick on-the-move access to their health information – just look for the NHS login button.
“This means patients remain safe in the knowledge they are accessing their health data through a safe system designed by the NHS, for the NHS and people across England.”
Arjun Panesar, Chief Executive Officer at DDM, makers of the Low Carb Program said: “Using NHS login with the Low Carb Program helps to make the user experience quicker and simpler. Members don’t want to have to remember password after password.”
Peer-reviewed, published outcomes of the Low Carb Program show that participants with type 2 diabetes who complete the intervention lose an average of 7% of their body weight and 1 in 4 are in type 2 diabetes remission at 1-year. The app is available on the web, iOS, Android, Oculus (VR) and Amazon Alexa.
Access using NHS login is already available via the web platform and will be made available to iOS and Android users in early 2021.
