Healthtech company HealthyHealth has appointed Sophie Currier as its new medical lead.
Currier has experience in medicine and medical science with a masters degree from MIT and doctorate from Harvard, completing her postgraduate medical training in both the UK and USA. This included general surgery at a Harvard teaching hospital, followed by medical internship at the Cambridge and Oxford trusts.
‘HealthyHealth is an exciting innovator in the digital health assessment environment,’ said Currier. ‘Smart devices, combined with a specialist mass database such as HealthyHealth’s, have the potential to transform personal health outcomes by motivating people to improve their own health with lifestyle changes and possibly stop many illnesses before they have begun.’
‘This innovation also offers an unparalleled opportunity for life and health insurers to make their vital product increasingly accessible and relevant to as wide a cohort as possible and I’m delighted to be joining these efforts,’ Currier continued.
Luca Schnettler, chief executive officer of HealthyHealth added: ‘It is a privilege to welcome a medical professional of Sophie’s stature to HealthyHealth.
‘We are working in partnership with a number of significant insurance industry businesses to deliver digital assessments capable of transforming underwriting and our pipeline is strong.
‘Our success has been created by our team of experts dedicated to building a product that is user-focused and transparent and I’m pleased that Sophie will be bringing her medical expertise to further these efforts as we drive our company forward.’
HealthyHealth is a healthtech company that offers digital health assessments for life and health insurers by comparing data with millions of historical profiles to predict the risk of diagnosis for more than 800 medical conditions. The data is then used to create an individualised prevention program via its app and web interface.
