As payers and employers have begun to incentivize healthier lifestyles, dacadoo’s ability to integrate data from multiple sources to present a holistic view of health metrics and encourage healthy living is a significant value proposition. Instead of simply qualifying a user as healthy or unhealthy, dacadoo sets itself apart by truly quantifying health. The company assigns a Health Score to an individual’s health between 1 (poor) and 1,000 (excellent) after analyzing real-time input from body makeup, emotions, and lifestyle. This scientifically based Health Score is based on more than 100 million person-years of clinical data and forms the basis of dacadoo’s wellness platform.
“Having established a leading market presence across Europe, dacadoo is gradually making its presence felt in the United States as well,” noted Frost & Sullivan. “In less than five years, dacadoo already has clients in the United Kingdom, Germany, Brazil, Japan, South Africa, Norway, Sweden, and Czech Republic as well as in its home base of Switzerland. This is a strong foundation for the accelerated growth of dacadoo’s Health Score-based platform in the global market.”
