Life Expectancy in the US, 1860–2020 (source: Statistica)

This startup is helping people live longer, healthier lives.

From the perspective of health and longevity, we live in the greatest era in the entire history of the human species. Life expectancy in the US has more than doubled in the past 100 years, and all over the world people are living longer, healthier lives.

But as always, there’s inequity (some people have access to better health care than others) and there’s also the “knowing-doing gap” — most of us know the healthy habits we should adopt, but sometimes we have trouble changing our behavior.

ioHealth, a new startup in Australia, is addressing this with a new digital platform that provides clear and useable wellness and longevity information, combined with tools to measure and track your health, and strategies to achieve your goals.

Even though there have been tremendous advancements in the medical field, the fact is that we still have a medical care system that is focused on sick care — not prevention and wellness. On top of that, the internet provides a firehose of information for consumers, but some of it is conflicting or downright misleading. ioHealth, with an advisory board of leading physicians, delivers information that is personalized, relevant, and vetted by doctors.

If you are a runner or a cyclist, you know that Strava has become a very popular platform which provides a dashboard with a visualization of all your activity, goals, milestones, etc. So think of ioHealth as being like Stava for your overall health. It tracks your bloodwork and other lab work, provides visualizations of the data, reminds you of checkups you should have, provides personalized recommendations, and more.

New advances in digital health are changing lives everywhere today. ioHealth is one example of an exciting new startup committed to helping individuals to leave longer, live healthier, and be happier.

ioHealth will be presenting at Demo Day for the 4thly Startup Accelerator.
