What is Chronic disease?

 

The term chronic disease applies to a group of diseases that are the main cause of reduced quality of life and premature death in Australia.   These conditions are typically readily preventable if the risk factors are picked up early enough.

Our app enables identification of 95% of chronic disease risk. 

The list of conditions included in our workplace risk predictor and management application are:

  • Cancers - Breast, Prostate, Bowel, Lung and Skin
  • Mental health conditions (Depression, Anxiety & PTSD)
  • Diabetes - Type 2 and Gestational ( pregnancy related )
  • Heart disease
  • Stroke
  • High blood pressure ( hypertension )
  • Chronic kidney disease
  • Back pain
  • Osteoporosis
  • Sleep apnoea and
  • Dementia.
 
 

The In2health workplace predictor identifies level of risk for each of these conditions and provides a personalised action plan to empower individuals to reduce their  future risk.  We also provide employers with insights into workplace risks that can impact health and strategies to manage these. 

In larger organisations, In2health also provides fully de-identified, aggregated data on health risks and their likely financial impacts.  We provide strategies to cost effectively manage these risks and partner with organisations to reduce unnecessary costs and to best support their employees to be their healthiest selves.
