Hitachi is continuing to contribute to social innovation by forming an alliance with the NHS and other partners to tackle diabetes in the UK. The Smart Digital Diabetes Prevention solution helps people at risk to make a sustained lifestyle change to prevent the onset of Type 2 diabetes through personalised lifestyle goals. 

It combines an online portal – available through a smartphone or a desktop computer – which supports self-assessment, monitoring and management with a professional health advisor who provides regular advice and coaching.

This online method of receiving support has the potential to have a similar impact to face-to-face interventions – helping bring down high blood sugar levels and in turn prevent or delay onset of Type 2 diabetes.
