How At-Home Wellness Kits Work
Reperio’s HIPAA-compliant mobile app begins with a wellness screening to understand lifestyle patterns. Then, the biometric screening walks customers through the testing process using voiceovers, animations and videos to make the process as user-friendly as possible. Once they complete the full screening, the Reperio app provides them real-time results with context that explains their results in a consumer-friendly and easy to understand format.
In addition to their initial launch into the employer market, Reperio’s at-home health assessments will be made available to health plans, retirement facilities, fitness and nutrition practitioners and directly to individuals who are personally motivated to better understand and control their health data.
