(PRWEB) January 19, 2010 -- With the national debate on healthcare still churning, innovations in technology will have a bottom-line impact on people’s health. While a lot of attention has been paid to electronic health records, there is a new breed of technology aimed at preventative, integrative health solutions. HealtheHuman has released the latest version of their online integrated health tracking tools, providing members ways to track, understand, and improve their health by helping them be more informed decision makers.

HealtheHuman provides members over 30 different ways to track their health, from detailed daily logs to a comprehensive history and profile. The main concept driving HealtheHuman is simple: Good Health Starts with Good Decisions. If people and their advisors have detailed health information and a comprehensive health history available to them, they will make better decisions that can lead to more effective lifestyle, prevention, and treatment choices. The company’s mission is to build technology to help people make better, more informed health decisions by providing them integrated tools to track, analyze, and understand all areas of their diet, fitness, medical, and other health related information in one place.

“Understanding your health is an increasingly complex problem, one that most people don’t have the right information and tools to do effectively. People are being asked to have more accountability for their health and well-being than ever before. We have more doctors and health advisors with shorter office visits, higher costs, and an increasing emphasis on preventive health, “says Robert Beckett, Co-Founder of HealtheHuman. “Over the past decade we have seen an extraordinary increase in access to health information, but few technologies aimed at helping people track and understand their own health in a meaningful, integrated way. What we are doing with HealtheHuman is giving people the tools they need to create an interconnected, big-picture view of their health.”

For many people, the start of a new year means the start of a new set of goals to improve their health. With so many people focused on diet and weight loss, HealtheHuman has made significant improvements in the diet and nutrition tracking tools. The latest release includes more powerful food and recipe tracking including detailed daily summaries of key nutrition information. Members can now see these nutrition summaries by both meal and by the type of food, such as their total fat consumed at lunch or their total calories from beverages in a day. A new “Know Your Numbers” features provides a quick overview of key health indicators, such as Body Mass Index (BMI), Waist-to-Height Ratio, Dietary Reference Intakes (DRI), and other useful statistics.

With an emphasis on helping people understand their health, HealtheHuman includes analysis features that allow members to chart their health data over time. Analytics are built into the daily tracking tools, allowing people to build insightful charts and dashboards of their health data, from their total calories per day to their blood pressure to their waist measurement. People can analyze hundreds of different aspects of their health with integrated daily logs, reporting, and goals. The latest release also includes a new “Did You Know” feature that provides changes in key health data, such as total calories per day over the last 30 days or changes in BMI over the last 2 weeks.

Research has shown that one of the most effective ways to stay motivated and continue working towards improving your health is to set and track your progress towards goals. In addition to more detailed diet and nutrition analysis, the latest release of HealtheHuman includes significant upgrades to the goal tracking features. Members can now create six different types of diet goals, starting from specific goals about each food they eat up to big-picture goals on a month-to-month basis. This cumulative approach to goal tracking allows people to create a series of micro-goals that collectively can help them stay on track with larger, long-term health goals. For example, a member can set a goal to not eat any food with more than 5 grams of fat, to limit their daily caloric intake from beverages to 200 calories, to eat between 6 and 8 grams of fiber at breakfast, and then set a daily goal of 1950 total calories. This layered approach to setting and tracking goals gives people more insight into specific types of food, times of day, and overall behavior that can help them achieve their dietary goals. These new goal tracking capabilities are available in the diet, exercise, medication, supplement, and health data tracking features in HealtheHuman, providing members with one tool to track hundreds of health goals.
