Healthcheck is a digital questionnaire designed to give you insight into your long-term disease risks. It provides changes you can make to reduce their risk and improve your long-term health.
Through a detailed assessment of medical history, family history, diet, lifestyle and mental health, Healthcheck creates a projection of your risk of contracting a range of diseases in the next 5 years, based on peer-reviewed epidemiological data.
These diseases are represented to you through the Digital Twin, a graphic representation of the human body broken down by organ. From here, you can explore specific conditions and understand your risks and the factors affecting you. Risks are shown compared to people of the same age and gender to show you how your risks compare to people like yourself.
Note: Healthcheck is intended for use by adults over the age of 18. Healthcheck is not suitable for pregnant women and users with long-term medical conditions or disabilities who may have different needs and risks than shown.
2. How accurate is the disease risk calculation?
Disease risk calculation in Healthcheck is based on statistics using a risk scoring system. This risk scoring system is built from population-based epidemiological data for diseases and their risk factors, gathered primarily from observational studies of populations.
As such, risk score can be considered reflective of the typical individual in the population for whom the questionnaire responses given match those of the user. The model has been tested against individual outcomes for a subset of the diseases using a large longitudinal population study.
