PHILADELPHIA--(BUSINESS WIRE)--What if a number could give people critical insights into their health and well-being? Could people better understand their health and proactively fend off acute and chronic diseases before they become a greater health risk? These are the questions the creators of tallywell, an innovative new Apple Watch app that gives people access to a FICO-like score for their health, are asking and answering with their AI-powered platform.
Tallywell leverages the power of AI to improve health and save people time in making sense of their disparate health data. The app leverages comprehensive health data from Apple’s HealthKit to calculate a personalized tallywell scoreTM. Each score experience is fed to a predicting machine producing tallywell’s weekly Know Your NumbersTM report. Know Your NumbersTM provides users past and current health trends, predicts future scores and subscores and makes recommendations on how to improve sleeping habits, exercise, heart rate, BMI/weight and more.
The tallywell team aims to offer a proactive and preventative tool that empowers users to make better decisions for their health and well-being and improve the overall happiness of human beings. And because so many people today from all walks of life use devices like the Apple Watch that collect health data, the tallywell app is an easy and affordable way to create unity and community by simplifying access to valuable health insights—a critical service in a time of rising healthcare costs.
“At our core, we’re striving to enhance overall happiness by nurturing the synergy of mind, body, and spirit," said Candice Paik, CEO and co-founder of tallywell. "We firmly believe that happiness is an intricate blend of physical well-being, mental clarity, and spiritual fulfillment. Armed with the right health data, moms, dads, working professionals—people from all walks of life—can more easily make better decisions for themselves and their families, achieving a harmonious balance across these essential facets of life. This is exactly what tallywell does, leveraging the remarkable power of AI for genuine societal good, empowering individuals to take proactive control of their health, and consequently, elevating overall happiness by fostering a holistic approach to well-being.”
“We have diligently cultivated the concept of tallywell over the course of a decade,” founder and Chief Product Officer Aaron Holloway added. “During our initial foray, we found ourselves ahead of our time and were not able to see the progress we envisioned due to the immaturity of artificial intelligence and machine learning technologies coupled with the lack of access to robust and integrity-rich health data. Fast forward and we are now in an age where those blockers are no more. As the cliche goes— Health is Wealth—why is it that there is a score that easily identifies financial risk but not health risk? We created tallywell to solve that dilemma.”
