Playpal Successfully Tests Revolutionary New AI-Powered Health Platform
Playpal Completes PoC Delivering Proactive Health Insights to Users and Communities in an Effort to Improve, Quantify and Incentivize Health – Based on the Human “Health Capital” Model.
Playpal, the AI-powered health tech platform, announces the completion of its proof of concept (PoC), successfully creating both iOS and web versions of its new platform set to revolutionize the health industry.
The platform collects and consolidates IoT health data from across apps and devices to deliver a holistic picture of a user’s health. With a view to intervene in health depreciation, the platform utilizes artificial intelligence and machine learning to offer individualized recommendations for the user’s better health. Playpal is powered by a dual incentivization model that prompts healthy actions through the intrinsic motivation of gamified health and extrinsic reward in the form of monetary benefits.
The PoC successfully demonstrated the various architectural elements of the platform involving the gathering and monitoring of user data from mHealth apps and devices, the implementation of public databases, the correlation of nutrition data with fitness data, and visualizations of user-specific profiles and recommendations.
Analysis shows that the proliferation of mHealth devices and apps has increased the average consumer’s accessibility to health information and tracking. However, the sheer volume of fragmented information in a cluttered marketplace causes confusion and prevents any sensible absorption or utilization by the consumer. Simultaneously, low engagement in healthy behaviour is driving down retention rates for health-oriented programs, devices and apps, while healthcare costs are skyrocketing.
To mitigate these problems, Playpal recognizes the need to assimilate data from heterogeneous sources and promote self-awareness and management of health. The platform integrates the requirements of individual users, commercial entities and communities to deliver a one-stop solution through incentivized collection, consolidation and smart visualization of health data. While users will benefit from proactive data-driven health advice, relevant stakeholders will also be able to receive valuable insights on their community’s health profile with the added advantage of streamlining programs to encourage healthy behaviour. Integration with the platform will increase user engagement in health programs and reduce healthcare costs, resulting in an overall healthier population.
Playpal CEO Eesha Sheikh remarked: “We live in a time where more and more people own a fitness device and health information through the internet is at our fingertips. But it is difficult to make sense of all these various sources of information, let alone translate it into your own particular needs and lifestyle. Playpal’s platform helps you decide what makes sense for you, to enable you to live and invest in your best life.”
