Low Carb Program, the highest Orcha-rated app for diabetes, tackles key COVID-19 risk factors: obesity and type 2 diabetes. The platform provides healthcare professionals with the tools to care for patients remotely while focusing on those that require attention, reducing face-to-face appointments, and reducing the spend on diabetes medications. Complete remote onboarding support is provided so NHS staff can safely prescribe the program. New ways of commissioning remove the burden of finding and allocating budget for scalable delivery.
