The AI-powered tool enables physicians to deliver preventive care for at-risk individuals, improving lives while mitigating future pressure on healthcare systems, according to a press release. The tool is built on algorithms based on ten years of data relating to around 4 lakh individuals across the country collected by the team at Apollo Hospitals.

The tool delivers a risk score that takes into account all contributing factors including lifestyle attributes such as diet, tobacco, smoking preferences and physical activity as well as psychological stress and anxiety as reflected via rate of respiration, and hypertension. It also gives insights on the risk contributors that can be modified to improve the score, enabling physicians to give a more holistic advice to their patients with specific insights for lifestyle modification.
