Low-Carb Program scoops top healthcare award
The pioneering Low-Carb Program has scooped another top award, it has been announced.
Developed by Diabetes Digital Media (DDM) to help prevent and reverse type 2 diabetes, the initiative picked up ‘Best Healthcare Software product – Patient Centred’ at the Building Better Healthcare (BBH) Awards.
The annual event celebrates the innovation, architecture, people, products and services that are helping to transform patient care. The awards were presented at a ceremony in London in October.
GP-turned-comic Dr Phil Hammond hosted the event, which was attended by representatives from the NHS, design and build, and estates and facilities management sectors, as well as suppliers of products and services into the healthcare industry.
The Low Carb Program has disrupted and redefined the landscape of type 2 diabetes management, with Dr Campbell Murdoch, Chief Medical Officer at DDM leading the authorship of a Demedication Protocol in the BJGP in July as a direct response to the thousands of people within the platform.
The Low Carb Program app is available via the NHS Apps Library and has been approved to meet NHS quality standards for safety, usability and accessibility. It also has QISMET approval for all programme streams meaning it can be prescribed on the NHS.
Earlier this year, the Low Carb Program was selected by the NHS Innovation Accelerator, to scale type 2 diabetes remission within primary care. The NHS Innovation Accelerator works to scale high impact, evidence-based innovations across the NHS and wider healthcare system to adopt initiatives to support the NHS Long Term Plan.
