Longevum to roll out Gevity for diabetes self-management in western Sydney
Brisbane-based digital health developer Longevum has won a contract to roll out a diabetes self-management app as part of the Western Sydney Diabetes (WSD) initiative.
Longevum plans to make some adaptations to its Gevity health management platform, which allows clinicians, carers and patients to share health plans and provides remote monitoring of vital signs along with alerts, algorithms and calculators that can determine risk profiles.
WSD, a joint initiative between Western Sydney Local Health District, Western Sydney Primary Health Network and Diabetes NSW, tendered for a self-management app last year, hoping to trial it with 2000 patients before scaling it up commercially. The region has some of the highest rates of diabetes and pre-diabetes in the country.
