  • Publication number: 20180344215
    Abstract: Dynamic tracking of user-based activity is provided as a function of information received from a plurality of data sources. Tracking of user activity information via a first application occurs correlated to steps taken by a user over a period of time. A health score associated with the user is presented in a GUI. Further, communication with a second application occurs during gameplay. Moreover, the at least one computing device is configured to combine, using the first application, the tracked user activity information with at least a portion of the user interaction information into an activity value. The computing device updates the health score using the activity value. Still further, the computing device is configured to store the updated health score in association with a record concerning the user, and to cause a notification on the mobile computing device of the updated health score when the first application is not executing.

  • Publication number: 20180350451
    Abstract: In one or more implementations, the present application includes a system and method to classify user activity. A passive tracking device, a processor configured to receive information from the tracking device, and a database are disclosed, in which the database is accessible by the processor and stores tracking device information, user profile information and external information. The processor is configured to execute instructions that cause the processor to perform various steps, such as to define a first activity unit having a first start time that corresponds to detection of the user being engaged in an activity, and monitor the tracking device information, the external information or both. The processor is further configured to establish a first end time of the first activity unit using the monitored information, and automatically ascribe a classification of the first activity unit.

  • Publication number: 20170147775
    Abstract: A system and method are disclosed for computing a Health Score. Health data and extrinsic data are received that are parameters for computation of the Health Score. The received data can be combined using an algorithm being implemented as code executing in a processor so as to compute the Health Score of the individual wherein parameters comprising one portion of the data interacts with parameters comprising another portion of the data. Further, the computed Health Score is output to an interface of the user device. Information concerning the parameters' interaction are selectively output to the interface that explain which changes in the parameters are significant drivers of the change in the Health Score.

  • Publication number: 20170147788
    Abstract: A passive tracking device, a processor configured to receive information from the tracking device, and a database accessible by the processor, among other elements, are disclosed. A first activity unit having a first start time corresponding to detection of engagement is monitored. The processor is further configured to establish a first end time of the first activity unit using the monitored information, and automatically ascribe a classification of the first activity unit. The classification of the first activity unit is output to a display of a computing device, and the classification of the first activity unit is stored in the database. A revised classification is output to a display of a computing device, the revised classification is stored in the database.

  • Publication number: 20160378921
    Abstract: A computer implemented method for managing health-related data captures an image from a display of an exercise machine using a camera, has the images processed to extract the text data from the captured images, and analyzes the text data to identify information relating to extrinsic physical activity performed by a person at the exercise machine. The results are stored in memory and a profile specific to the person is updated. The profile comprises a log of past exercise activity that allows the person to track his or her activity and progress and overall health. The profile can be accessed by the person through a portal such as using a smart phone or a computer program or web browser. The results can be combined with other data to arrive at a health score which can be published through the portal while personal data remains masked from public inspection.

  • Patent number: 8996314
    Abstract: There is shown and described a computer implemented system and method for analyzing an individual's personal stress level and providing a stress-score representing the individual's personal stress level. A plurality of parameters are received into a memory from at least one computing device and each of the parameters respectively represents a factor of the individual's life that contributes to a level of stress for the individual. The received parameter data is processed by executing code in a processor that configures the processor to normalize the parameter data by assigning, for each of the received parameters, a respective parameter score that represents a relative value of the parameter. The individual's stress-score is calculated as a function of the normalized parameter data, the stress-score is automatically transmitted to the at least one computing device, using code executing in the processor and free of human intervention.

  • Publication number: 20140316811
    Abstract: A unique health score computation method is disclosed which masks underlying health statistics, yet provides a benchmark for a variety of applications. A system and method for collecting health related information, processing the information into a composite numerical value, and publishing the value is provided. The system includes a computer having a processor, memory, and code modules executing in the processor for implementation of the method. Information concerning a plurality of intrinsic and extrinsic parameters of a user is collected. Weighting factors are applied to the parameter in order control the relative affect each parameter has on the user's calculated numerical. The health score is computed using the processor by combining the weighted parameters in accordance with an algorithm. The numerical value is published to a designated group via a portal, while the underlying parameters remain private. In one implementation, the portal is an internet based information sharing forum.
