Innovative Technology Makes Health Easy, Convenient and Accessible to All
Technology is now emerging to address the often inaccurate, irrelevant, and biased way in which health information is presented. Specifically, new sophisticated software is being developed that directly communicates accurate, relevant health information in real time to ensure people can achieve and maintain health without needing to know or even think much about being healthy.
One of the newer applications on the market – Shae – is built on technology and complex algorithms, 10 years in development by its umbrella company ph360, that are able to identify a person's unique epigenetic makeup and understand their specific bodily needs. Shae delivers these insights in the form of a virtual health assistant that can suggest daily habits, including the ideal diet, to ward off health issues. Where virtual assistants like Siri, Cortana, and Google Now respond to user questions by sending input to generic high-powered servers, Shae seeks answers from a database it has created solely consisting of information relevant to you.
"With the intersection of health science and technology, we have given birth to a whole new way to help the human body function optimally using personalized, predictive, and preventative data. Our next generation of software, Shae, will talk with each of us, instruct us, care for us and think about health on our behalf. It's exciting to see where it will lead people as they enjoy greater vitality, less pain and disease," explains Matt Riemann, Health Science expert and founder of ph360.
Health continues to be an elusive goal for many, with 1 in 3 Americans obese and 68 percent overweight, while cancer rates continue to rise and heart disease remains the number one leading cause of death worldwide. Technology is poised to have a large influence on improving individuals' lifestyle choices as health companies meet the challenge of addressing causes of ill health by delivering clear, accurate, personalized health and care.
"Now is a critical time for us to harness new health technology to address the enormous state of chronic disease that is growing worse at an alarming rate. If we don't act now, it will become impossible to correct in a timely manner and too many will pay the price of our inability to provide health recommendations that work," states Riemann. "We are changing the course of history with technology. We are excited about Shae and the direct access that any individual will have to personalized health."
