Oviva was founded in 2014 by a multidisciplinary team of health and technology experts. Half of the European population is overweight and at a higher risk of developing type 2 diabetes. The three founders Kai Eberhardt (CEO), Manuel Baumann (CTO) and Mark Jenkins (UK Managing & Medical Director) recognised that, despite this, there were no personalised, long-term treatment options. Their solution was to combine personal advice by a dietitian with a smart app that patients use to record relevant information such as meals, physical activity or weight and also provides them with learning content. In addition, the app's chat feature enables a regular exchange with the nutritionist and provides the patient with helpful learning content.
Longer term, Oviva helps its patients to lead a healthier life, relieves pressure on doctors to advise on weight and lifestyle, and ultimately leads to savings for the health system. Oviva works directly with statutory health insurers and national health systems and operates in Switzerland, Germany, the UK and France. The Oviva App has been certified as a medical device since January 2021.
