Today’s healthcare industry provides a lot of care, but it falls short when it comes to making people healthier
Chicago, IL (PRWEB) October 07, 2014
4D Healthware today launched a digital health platform that gives individuals personalized care suggestions based on their unique health data and objectives. At launch, 4D Healthware’s algorithm based suggestions address diabetes and obesity, chronic diseases that are significantly impacted by activity and fitness.
In addition to health suggestions, 4D Healthware makes it easy for users to monitor and share data from fitness trackers and electronic health records, record and schedule medications and appointments, and share progress with healthcare providers, friends and family. Over the coming 12 to 18 months, 4D Healthware has been selected to work on commercial projects with one of the largest and most respected hospitals in the country and will add consumer access to genomic data, academic research and environmental data to further personalize healthcare.
For healthcare providers, 4D Healthware is easily integrated into existing treatment protocols, helping to track patient progress and streamline communication between visits.
At launch, the platform is being used by a naturopath clinic in California. 4D Healthware aligns perfectly with the clinic since it relies on behavioral modification and remote monitoring to improve its patients’ health and well-being.
“Today’s healthcare industry provides a lot of care, but it falls short when it comes to making people healthier, and simply adding hundreds of fitness trackers is not the answer,” said Star Cunningham, founder and CEO of 4D Healthware. “This problem is a lot larger than diet or fitness, a device, an app or electronic medical records. It requires a holistic data approach that brings together all of the available health-related information from both individuals and the world around us.”
Critically, 4D Healthware accepts data from any source, including devices, apps and electronic health records, regardless of manufacturer.
“The name 4D comes from the four components of better health: data, decisions, discipline and desire,” said Cunningham. “Experience shows us that when the right information informs smart decisions, patients will make a habit of health, and that upon seeing the results of their actions they will be motivated to continue.”
