Reviews

Reviewer: Hepatitis Victoria, the not-for-profit organisation which developed the app.
Review:

“Millions of Australians suffer from symptoms associated with liver disease with over 400,000 living with hepatitis B or hepatitis C.

Hepatitis Victoria introduces LiverWELL, a free interactive app that is a practical tool to help people optimise their liver health. There are many health apps around but they tend to be either for specialist clinicians or from those promoting a healthier diet.
LiverWELL has been informed and tested by people living with hepatitis. 

“People with hepatitis and liver disease need practical tools that remind them to take their medications, schedule their appointments, record their test results and keep their personal health notes all in one place,” said Dr Nicole Allard, a general practitioner and specialist in hepatitis B. “The beauty of LiverWELL is that everyone with a mobile phone now has this option within their grasp and I will be recommending the app to my patients,” she said. 

“Every week up to 6 Victorians die from viral hepatitis-related liver disease…and liver cancer is the fastest growing cancer in the country,” said Melanie Eagle, CEO of Hepatitis Victoria. “We need to tackle this health crisis head on,” she said. 

“World Hepatitis Day is one of a handful of world health days mandated by the World Health Organisation precisely because hepatitis is such a serious and deadly disease,” said Jill Hennessy, Minister for Health in the Victorian Government. “The Victorian Government is committed to eradicating viral hepatitis in our community by 2030 and to do this we need clever and creative approaches. I congratulate Hepatitis Victoria on producing such a useful tool for people living with hepatitis,” said Minister Hennessy. 

LiverWELL is now available for Android and Apple smartphones in English with the translation of main functions in Arabic, Chinese and Vietnamese.”
