Covid-19 health trackers – easily track symptoms and share anonymised data to drive research and inform the response against Covid-19. We need your help!
App Release Bought Forward
To help combat the Covid-19 pandemic, the team at Healthbit have brought forward the release of the Healthbit app, which will be available free of charge.
The app includes Covid-19 trackers, to help people monitor their health and capture their experience (lifestyle, physical and mental health impact) if infected by the virus – whether asymptomatic or dealing with mild to severe symptoms.
We’re hoping people will find the app useful to keep on top of all their health information, for themselves, family members and the people they care for, allowing important information to be shared with doctors in a crisis.
Important research data
Our Covid-19 trackers are informed by WHO guidelines where they exist. We hope the combination of Covid-specific trackers alongside existing health tracking tools will provide important information concerning the impact of medicines, comorbidities, lifestyle and behaviours on disease symptoms and disease progression.
By capturing and sharing a real-time portrayal of the impact, we hope to correlate trends and gain insights to better prepare citizens, inform government responses and allow researchers to gain a better understanding of Covid-19 on a regional and global basis.
Data points captured by the Healthbit platform will include but are not limited to;
(All data collected is SNOMED CT encoded)
Symptoms and their severities
Existing medical conditions (comorbidities)
Medicines being used to treat symptoms
Mental health (anxiety, depression, mood)
Activity and exercise
