Company to Provide Research Access to its Award-Winning Platform to Scientists Wanting to Harness the Potentially Lifesaving Power of Wearable Devices; Platform Premise Based on Concept of Richard Thaler's Nobel Prize-Winning "Nudge" Theory

ATLANTA, Oct. 10, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- EVO?, a leading provider of predictive analytics technology to the insurance and

healthcare industries, today announces it is providing scientists with access to its wearable device and engagement platform for academic and non-commercial research purposes. The EVO?™ platform combines data analytics with behavioral economics' Nobel Prize-winning "Nudge" theory to help users adopt better behaviors and habits that lead to improved health and wellness over time.

"Over the last few years, we have witnessed first-hand the potential lifesaving value of wearable devices," says J. Patrick Bewley, CEO of EVO? "but historically, integrating this data into research protocols has been overly complex. This shouldn't be a barrier for scientists who want to research potential health uses from these devices."

To help simplify the availability and integrality of such data, the company is making the EVO?™ platform available to scientists for non-commercial and academic research.

Providing True Wellness Insights, Not Just Data

Using biometrics gathered from a user's mobile phone and/or wearable device, the EV?™ platform combines the best of data and behavioral science to deliver a personalized experience. It harnesses the power of 60+ billion human physiological, psychological and behavioral data points.  By analyzing these data points and using the Nobel Prize-winning concept from the behavioral economics of a "nudge," EV?™ encourages users on their own unique wellness journey while enabling rich longitudinal data streams for researchers.

EV?™ is available for download in the Apple Store and Google Play by searching "EVO-BCA." Once downloaded, researchers can enter the code "INOV8" to register their subjects. To learn more or download the app, visit http://evo.science.

EV?™ integrates natively with the Garmin family of devices as well as Fitbit and Apple Health (including Apple Watch, iPhone, and other Apple Health contributing data sources) to better assess a comprehensive view of a user's daily activity. The app uses this data to encourage and assist users in achieving daily goals in creating better behaviors and habits; leading to improved health and wellness over time.  Behavioral and Biometric data streams are available to scientists with subjects participating in the program via a separate login.  Researchers can also customize the over 8,000 artificial intelligence rules to adapt to their research protocol.

"The EV? app is a culmination of almost 5 years of research and development around connected health data, working with global insurance, pharma, universities, senior living organizations and others," adds Bewley.

Research inquires can be made via email to research@evo.science. EV?™ is funded by Edison Partners.
