Healthcare Risk Assessment App

A novel healthcare monitoring system, integrating exposome-based data from users, environmental sensors and wearables to estimate an individual’s risk of developing cardiovascular and metabolic non-communicable disease.

A prototype of the system, comprising a smartphone app, environmental sensor hub and an online dashboard will be developed and tested on a small scale during the project to assess its feasibility, usability and acceptability. The system will enable the longitudinal monitoring of lifestyle and environmental exposure data, providing health risk assessments for use by the individual users and / or third parties such as researchers and healthcare professionals.

The system will focus on optimising the user experience by integrating seamlessly with existing technologies. To enable wider use, it will fully adhere to the recommendations on digital health from the European Consumer Organisation (BEUC), guaranteeing users full control of their collected data, measurement accuracy, safety and privacy.

Timescale for completion: Winter 2024

Updates

Progress update – April 2022

A key deliverable in the development of the system 'user and clinical requirements' was successfully completed in December 2021. The next step is to continue the development of the system, including integrating the initial list of variables (specific lifestyle factors e.g. daily sleep, dietary intake and environmental exposures e.g. noise, air quality) which have been identified.
