IBM Watson Health, American Heart Association & Welltok collaborate on heart health project

The American Heart Association plans to develop a workplace solution using IBM Watson Health’s cognitive computer power and Welltok’s health optimization platform.

The program, which will draw on the AHA’s metrics and health assessments, is designed to assess an employer’s workplace health environment and employees’ health.

"With Life's Simple 7 and the Workplace Health Achievement Index, we've presented a science-based blueprint for healthy living and corporate well-being," said Eduardo Sanchez, MD, CMO for prevention at the American Heart Association. "With this program, individuals and their employers will be able to benefit from a personalized, cognitive solution designed to help improve heart health and reduce healthcare costs. Our hope is that we can set a new standard for continuous quality improvement in workplace health."
