The Personalized Health Generation

 

As research continues to uncover the huge impact of environmental and lifestyle choices on personal health, the need and demand for personalized treatment solutions in healthcare are growing.

 

Healthcare Providers Struggle to Understand Chronic Conditions

 

Traditionally, health providers relied on patient reports and demographic information for understanding the behavior and progression of chronic conditions. Unfortunately, this information alone is not sufficient for a complete understanding of an individual’s health status and symptom triggers.

  • Lack of objective signals for understanding disease behavior and symptom flare-ups.
  • Difficulties in monitoring and encouraging patient medication adherence.

Air quality and pollen exposure information provide valuable insight into an individual’s health exacerbation causes. By deciphering the impact of dynamically changing environmental factors on chronic disease, treatment providers can better understand and prevent the associated symptom triggers.

 

Location-based & hourly-updated environmental insights help to complete patient views.

 

Health focused insights

 

Person-specific environmental intelligence powers the move from one-size-fits-all health solutions to treatment plans that are more tailored to the individual: Patients become empowered to live healthier, active lives and healthcare disruptors establish competitive advantage and unique offerings through data-led innovation.

 

For chronic disease sufferers, unreliable data can mean life or death.

 

High Accuracy in a Dynamic Environment

 

To ensure personalized, timely, and actionable environmental insights, BreezoMeter adopts a big data approach to air quality & pollen reporting.

Unlike other providers, we make use of multiple data sources, sophisticated modeling, & run continuous accuracy testing to ensure the information we report is reliable. The end result is hourly-updated air quality insights up to a resolution of 5 meters/16ft.
