BioSignia, a leading preventative healthcare technology company, today announced the signing of a licensing agreement with regional pharmacy chain Kerr Drug. BioSignia’s health risk assessment (HRA) engine significantly improves prevention and management of chronic diseases by focusing on individualized disease risk assessment (DRA).

Under terms of the agreement, BioSignia’s revolutionary Know Your Number® testing tool will be available to customers at participating Kerr Health Care Centers in North Carolina. Know Your Number is currently not available through any other pharmacy chain nationwide.

Know Your Number predicts the onset of preventable diseases, compares your current health status against your peers, reveals what chronic disease risks are modifiable and lets you know what factors (e.g. lack of exercise, smoking) are contributing to the risks of developing specific chronic conditions. Findings are communicated in easy-to-interpret, visually compelling reports that also help individuals track their progress.

Kerr Drug is deeply committed to providing the highest quality health and wellness services to patients, the medical community and healthcare sponsors. Adding Know Your Number to the roster of solutions already offered at its health care centers serves to further the company’s mission of being the premier community pharmacy in North Carolina.
“Know Your Number is, by no means, a standard health risk assessment tool,” commented Joe Heidrick, R.Ph., PharmD and program coordinator at Kerr Drug. “It evaluates and reports a person’s chances of developing a chronic disease in a much more accurate, actionable manner.”

Driven by a powerful, patented predictive technology, Know Your Number is the first and only clinically based multi-dimensional tool to predict an individual’s risk of onset, progression, or life expectancy related to multiple chronic diseases.
“We are extremely excited at the opportunity to work with one of the most recognized and respected retail organizations in the nation,” commented Tim Smith, CEO of BioSignia. “We firmly believe in the power of the Know Your Number solution and the benefits it will deliver to Kerr Drugs’ customers.”
