The challenge

Treating the growing number of diet-related health conditions

Diet-related conditions such as type 2 diabetes, obesity and food allergies pose a major challenge to the nation’s health, however, there are a limited number of specialist healthcare professionals, called dietitians, to meet this growing demand.

The solution

Technology-enabled dietetic services from Oviva

Oviva is a new type of healthcare provider using technology to scale the dietitian workforce to help meet this growing demand. We use virtual clinics and high-frequency follow-up to increase system capacity, improve clinical outcomes, and lower the cost of delivering care.

The benefits


  • Over 20,000 patients treated to date, with outcomes at least equivalent to traditional face to face care
  • Efficacy of remote dietetic services supported by multiple peer-reviewed studies


  • The same clinical outcome can be achieved with just half the dietitian time of traditional face to face care
  • Improved health status significantly reduces spend on prescribing, secondary care and GP attendances


  • Easy access through multiple channels (phone, text and video via app, and face-to-face)
  • Improved patient choice
  • Customised to each individual
