Numera Adds MEDgle Health Risk Assessments to Social Health Platform

Numera and MEDgle have entered into a strategic agreement to offer MEDgle’s innovative health risk assessment tools, real-time analytics, and clinical decision support models within Numera Social’s social + mobile behavior change platform. The combination will provide feedback on an individual’s overall “fit score,” identify potential health risk factors, and suggest health improvement opportunities. The results can be used to suggest relevant activity-based plans from Numera Social’s plan marketplace, or the individual can develop their own plans and challenges based on the MEDgle assessments.

The Numera Social platform provides a dynamic, user-friendly experience where creating engaging health improvement plans is fun, individuals are given clear paths to reach their goals and are prompted to stay on track by creating plans and participating in challenges. Continued engagement is achieved by easily creating a supportive network of friends and family invited to join the plan via the participant’s current Facebook connections.

“Providing health assessment capabilities as part of the Numera Social personal health tool is key to driving engagement and personal accountability,” said Mark Oswald, Numera’s CTO and VP, Engineering. “A majority of people don’t realize they are overweight or pre-diabetic. But once they do acknowledge there is an issue, the tools to take action are right there, wherever they work, play or live.”

“Every decision starts with predicting its possible consequences. Furthermore, you can’t manage what you can’t predict,” said Ash Damle, CEO of MEDgle. “Real-time, understandable clinical prediction and assessment support is the key first step in empowering all of us in self-care and becoming truly participatory in our health and care. We help people put their health in perspective using over 130 million data points and real-time analytics.”

At CloudEXPO Silicon Valley, June 24-26, 2019, Digital Transformation (DX) is a major focus with expanded DevOpsSUMMIT and FinTechEXPO programs within the DXWorldEXPO agenda. Successful transformation requires a laser focus on being data-driven and on using all the tools available that enable transformation if they plan to survive over the long term.

Where many organizations get into trouble, however, is that they try to have a broad and deep knowledge in each of these areas. This is a huge blow to an organization's productivity. By automating or outsourcing some of these pieces, such as databases, infrastructure, and networks, your team can instead focus on development, testing, and deployment. Further, organizations that focus their attention on these areas can eventually move to a test-driven development structure that condenses several l...

Never mind that we might not know what the future holds for cryptocurrencies and how much values will fluctuate or even how the process of mining a coin could cost as much as the value of the coin itself - cryptocurrency mining is a hot industry and shows no signs of slowing down. However, energy consumption to mine cryptocurrency is one of the biggest issues facing this industry. Burning huge amounts of electricity isn't incidental to cryptocurrency, it's basically embedded in the core of "mini...
Every organization is facing their own Digital Transformation as they attempt to stay ahead of the competition, or worse, just keep up. Each new opportunity, whether embracing machine learning, IoT, or a cloud migration, seems to bring new development, deployment, and management models. The results are more diverse and federated computing models than any time in our history.
