We have recently seen a huge increase in the number of devices on the market that are designed to track a wide range of human metrics, everything from the amount of steps taken and heart rate to sun exposure and stress levels. The larger question posed by these advancements is what we do once we have access to all this data? A simple system to intuitively manage this breadth of information could be quite a powerful tool.


RevUp! from MD Revolution is a new platform that is working to help users make sense of their growing collection of health data. It takes the form of a web and mobile app that analyzes these metrics to deliver personalized health plans. The system compiles personal information–everything from lab results to optional genetic tests–asks about user’s health goals, and gives tailored strategies to help achieve them. Users can also sync any apps or gadgets they use to track their health, from diet journals to pedometers and sleep monitors, so stats will be constantly kept up to date.


To build on top of that, the platform also uses predictive intelligence to give users better access to proactive and preventative health care. According to founder Dr. Samir Damani, this is to “shift the medical paradigm from reactive disease treatment to proactive health care.” All RevUp! users receive a highly customized health plan based on their preferences and lifestyle, in which users are guided by a team of clinicians that track their individual progress and give constructive, motivational feedback via the online platform or email. An innovative points system and other gamified elements tap into users’ competitive sides to keep them close to their goals.


The platform could go a long way in reshaping the way individuals interact with their health care professionals. According to Dr. Damani:

No longer do we need to wait for the business of medicine to diagnose and treat debilitating disorders like heart disease, cancer, diabetes and obesity. Today — with the right tools and support — consumers have the ability to predict, prevent, and even reverse these chronic diseases on their own.

MD Revolution unveiled RevUp! at the 2014 International Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas, and promises to place better access to healthcare at the fingertips of its users.
