BioSignia’s Know Your NumberŪ Catalyst for Employee Communication in Dossia Health Manager

Leading predictive modeling company’s health risk assessment tool embedded into Dossia’s personalized, data-driven health management solution

Research Triangle Park, North Carolina – August 24, 2011 — BioSignia, a predictive modeling company providing innovative solutions for chronic disease prevention and management, today announced the signing of a licensing agreement with leading personal health management system provider, Dossia. The agreement between the companies is centered on the integration of BioSignia’s patented predictive modeling technology into the recently launched Dossia Health Management System.

Dossia is a leading health management system provider with an existing customer base comprised of large self-ensured companies dedicated to empowering individuals to take better control of their health and healthcare. BioSignia’s “Know Your Number” health assessment calculates an employee’s individual 5 year risk for getting several of the nation’s most prevalent chronic diseases and quantifies the impact that leading a healthier lifestyle can make on preventing the onset of specific diseases. Know Your Number will be available on the Dossia Health Management System to members of the Dossia network in late September 2011. The Know Your Number findings are communicated in an easy-to-interpret, visually compelling report that outlines risk factors on a multi-dimensional scale. The Dossia Health Manager then makes the information provided by Know Your Number actionable by offering relevant content and suggestions for tools to help users further reduce their risk.

“Know Your Number’s integration with Dossia’s intelligent platform is a wonderful example of how the Dossia Health Manager offers next generation personalization and capabilities to users,” commented Steve Munini, Dossia COO. “Know Your Number’s multi-dimensional results help us meet our goal of providing an engaging, personalized experience for the employee,” added Mr. Munini.

“We are excited to have been selected by Dossia to help drive what promises to be one of the most effective health management tools available to corporations today,” said John Schilhab, BioSignia’s Executive Vice President of Business Development. “Our scientists have worked diligently to create a solution that provides employees with the clinically-sound, actionable information they need to achieve better health. Our alliance with Dossia is going to allow our technology to improve the health of employees and enable employers to reduce their healthcare spending; we couldn’t be more excited about the future of the Know Your Number and Dossia Health Manager,” added Schilhab.
