A powerful one-page report developed by BioSignia can help people stay healthier longer and dramatically reduce the nation’s rising health care costs. Designed by a leading technology company, Know Your Number™ is a breakthrough disease-specific risk assessment tool (DRA) that transcends standard health risk assessments (HRA). Heart disease, diabetes, and stroke are the nation’s top disease killers and avoidance of these diseases can begin by just knowing your risks.

Annual healthcare spending in the U.S. is approaching $2 trillion, approximately 16% of the gross domestic product. Yet, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, an estimated 60% to 70% is associated with preventable conditions. To date, the U.S. health care system has been designed to address disease management instead of pro-actively predicting and preventing the actual diseases. Know Your Number can dramatically reduce the nation’s rising death toll from the nation’s big disease killers and also help contain the already out-of-control health costs associated with them.

In 30 minutes or less, Know Your Number collects information about you, such as your weight, blood pressure, family history, and lifestyle habits. Then, it uses a proprietary technology called, Synthesis Analysis™, to produce a detailed report on your risks of developing specific diseases. It’s unlike any other health risk assessment tool because it uses a multi-dimensional approach by isolating individual and aggregate data on absolute risk: what is the likelihood of developing a specific disease within 5 years; relative risk: how you compare to your peers; and modifiable risk: things relating to your lifestyle and habits that you can modify.

Know Your Number’s DRA approach is different from HRA’s in three ways:
1. It focuses on the main disease killers.
While other assessment tools just look at overall health, Know Your Number predicts an individual’s risks of developing the three main chronic preventable disease killers in the U.S.: heart disease, diabetes, and stroke. Traditional HRA tools are mortality-based and non-disease specific, which makes them less useful in identifying disease risk and predicting overall medical costs.

2. It shows what your specific risk is and how to reduce those risks.
This testing reveals what fraction of a chronic disease risk is modifiable and lets you know what factors (e.g. lack of exercise, smoking) are contributing to the risks of developing specific chronic conditions. Know Your Number used a proprietary technology, Synthesis Analysis TM, to deliver a multi-dimensional health risk assessment calculation that looks at all the risks, not just the overall risk. By singling out avoidable, modifiable, and non-avoidable risk, Know Your Number provides the steps individuals can take to significantly reduce their risks.

3. It compares you to your peers through an easy-to-read report.
Only Know Your Number addresses the multiple risk dimensions of specific chronic diseases unmatched by any HRA available. It also uses statistical software to help you learn how you compare to your peers. Through a visually compelling colorful report, it also helps individuals track their progress.

“Our health care system has evolved to focusing on treating diseases and while there will always be this need, the epidemic of obesity-related diseases has produced a lake of costs,” says Dr. Tim Smith, CEO of BioSignia. “The next generation of health care will be centered on proactive disease specific risk assessment and treatment and Know Your Number is leading the way.”

Health insurance premiums since the late 1980’s have skyrocketed, while overall inflation and workers earnings have only increased slightly in comparison. Chronic diseases account for more than 75 cents of every dollar spent on health care, and are the number one causes of death, disability and rising health care costs in the nation.

“This technology isn’t the only answer, but we can certainly tell who will likely have problems over the ensuing years and once identified, these individuals and their doctors can take action,” says Smith. “Know Your Number is all about actionable information.”
