What is My Health Advisor?

My Health Advisor is powered by Archimedes, a very powerful health modeling program that brings together a large amount of clinical research data to make highly accurate predictions about health risk. Archimedes creates a virtual reality in which all the important objects and events in the real world match objects and events in the model’s world.

When a simulation model is run, the objects interact and events occur as they would in the real world. So, My Health Advisor is very accurately projecting your personal risk based on real world events.

My Health Advisor was developed through the American Diabetes Association’s CheckUp America program, which is supported by unrestricted educational grants from Eli Lilly & Company, Merck & Merck/Schering-Plough Pharmaceuticals, Novartis, Pfizer Inc., sanofi-aventis, and Takeda Pharmaceuticals North America.
