The first element is broadly used health screening; a Personal Health Record (PHR) that drives a Health Risk Assessment (HRA), including basic blood chemistry values. There are 12 typical data points that give a good picture of a person’s health. These elements are height, weight, BMI, exercise, blood pressure, blood sugars, cholesterol, etc.
Convenient access to this screening by the entire population is a core principle. But, this is a critical point. If the screening just locates and guides more people into diagnoses and treatment, we will again miss the mark. Certainly the screening must couple with medical safety and realistic treatment. But, the screening must closely connect people to improved health and the activities that preserve and improve health.
