Evidation, a company focused on revolutionizing health measurement and enhancement in everyday life, has established a significant partnership with Our Future Health. Our Future Health is a national health research initiative undertaken collaboratively by the UK's National Health Service (NHS), public health agencies, non-profits, and prominent life sciences companies. This groundbreaking collaboration involves the deployment of Evidation's enterprise digital health engagement and measurement platform for a multi-year, longitudinal research program encompassing up to five million participants across the United Kingdom.
Drawing on Evidation's extensive expertise in measuring and characterizing health in daily life, along with their proficiency in engaging large populations, the partnership reflects a joint commitment to upholding the highest standards of data protection and user privacy. Our Future Health aims to assemble a diverse cohort of up to five million individuals across the UK who have willingly consented to participate, contributing to the development of innovative approaches for disease prevention, detection, and treatment. This cohort represents nearly 10% of the UK's adult population, exceeding 53 million people.
Evidation's technology will play a crucial role in powering the digital experience, including a participant-facing app and the necessary technological infrastructure. This is essential for the successful execution of the extensive research initiative, and the development of this new digital experience is scheduled for the coming months.
Recognized for its role as a technology layer supporting health research and engagement programs globally, Evidation's platform facilitates the extraction of real-world data, incorporating wearables and survey data. This enables a rapid and longitudinal understanding of health experiences within large populations. Developed over a decade, Evidation's measurement and engagement platform not only captures health data beyond traditional clinical settings but also incentivizes participants to adopt healthy actions.
