From bedside to research bench: Informing the development of an m-health intervention to predict illness risk

To improve the health and economy of Canada, Achu Health has developed an application based on a machine learning algorithm that uses data collected from a smartwatch to predict illness in individuals using the application. Achu Health aims to assess the scientific rigour of its application to ensure that the evaluation of the effectiveness can take place. Therefore, the partnership with the POP-PA laboratory at the University of British Columbia will help find and address any issues with the current stage of the application. This partnership will allow an application to be assessed and revamped while providing the basis for scientific evaluation. This will allow the application to better serve Canadians in terms of health and work productivity.
