Livongo, a leading Applied Health Signals company empowering people with chronic conditions to live better and healthier lives, announced the launch of a bi-directional integration with the top smartwatches in the market, including leading models from Apple, Fitbit, and Samsung. Livongo members can now connect their smartwatches to the Livongo mobile app to receive real-time Livongo notifications, enabling Livongo to provide more timely and relevant information to members and their care teams.
Smartwatches are one of the fastest growing new technologies and it is estimated that one in six people in the United States own a smartwatch. These new integrations allow Livongo to offer members behavioral Health Nudges™ and health information directly to their smartwatch. In addition, Livongo now offers members the ability to sync their steps data from their Apple, Fitbit, or Samsung smartwatches with their Livongo app. This data enables Livongo’s AI+AI engine to provide more personalized activity-related insights.
Livongo’s smartwatch integration is the latest example of how the company is applying innovative technology to the Livongo Member experience. In February 2019, Livongo announced that it will leverage Amazon Lex and Amazon Polly to power its voice-enabled cellular blood pressure monitoring system. Two months later, Livongo announced a collaboration with Amazon Alexa to offer members the ability to ask any of their Alexa-enabled devices to provide their blood glucose readings and health tips via the new HIPAA-compliant Livongo skill.
As part of the new smartwatch integration, Livongo now offers notifications for interactive challenges which are designed to empower members to form healthy lifestyle habits that support diabetes management and other chronic conditions in areas such as nutrition, exercise, sleep, stress management, and more. Each challenge is designed to enable sustainable lifestyle behavior changes that are known to drive measurable clinical outcomes by providing members with specific and achievable goals, tools for tracking progress, and daily educational content. Livongo is able to anticipate potential barriers that members might face during their behavior change journey and uses educational content to proactively address those barriers.
Livongo offers a whole person platform that empowers people with chronic conditions to live better and healthier lives. Livongo’s team of data scientists aggregate and interpret substantial amounts of health data and information to create actionable, personalized, and timely health signals. The Livongo approach has demonstrated that it can deliver better clinical and financial outcomes while creating a different and better experience for people with chronic conditions.
