South Africa’s health informatics firm LifeQ has collaborated with Silicon Valley-based Striiv to develop a high-scale, low-friction & personalised health information platform for the corporate wellness, insurance, care provider and pharmaceutical industries.
They will jointly develop a wrist-based body monitoring platform.
Together, Striiv and LifeQ will deliver a solution that removes the two major barriers to a scaled health information platform, namely: lack of quality biometric information and up-front technology and program costs.
Building on the technical depth of Striiv’s wearable platforms, the two companies will combine expertise to deliver wearable devices that extract maximum relevant physiological data, with minimum friction for the user, at previously unavailable unit economics – redefining the standards for performance, utility and cost.
The joint offering will open a gateway to a richer health information ecosystem, combining the expertise of relevant companies linking to the LifeQ Platform, to provide end-to-end solutions that can be scaled across insurance, wellness and pharmaceutical industries.
“Striiv is the first wearable company we’ve met where our skills and vision are so complementary and aligned. Striiv’s device and sensor know-how will further enable the LifeQ platform to accelerate the rollout of personalised health information, and we are incredibly excited at the potential for this partnership,” Riaan Conradie, PhD, the president and co-founder LifeQ, said in a statement.
Healthcare companies are utilising Striiv’s custom sensor and wearable technology to reduce claims, drive medication adherence, and augment traditional drug therapies.
“LifeQ’s deep expertise and scale in systems biology are driven analytics and modelling are ideally suited to provide critical insights for risk stratification and early intervention with our catalogue of data capture platforms. We’re delighted to team up with LifeQ to accelerate the adoption biometric and behavioural data in driving better outcomes and at scale,” said David Wang, founding CEO at Striiv.
LifeQ products and services are at the heart of the rapidly expanding digital health and wellness ecosystem and provide the foundation for a ground-breaking secure digital personal health information platform. LifeQ technology is already inside body monitoring devices, in risk metrics for the global insurance and corporate wellness industries, and available through its secure open data networks that are inside the world’s most scalable health information platforms.
