FiRe Conference Names MD Revolution a FiRe 2014 FiReStarter
Strategic News Service (SNS) is proud to announce that MD Revolution has been selected as a 2014 FiReStarter company to be featured at its 12th annual Future in Review (FiRe) Conference. Described by The Economist as “the best technology conference in the world,” FiRe features global thought leaders in technology and the global economy, including Elon Musk, Paul Jacobs, Mark Hurd, Vint Cerf, Leroy Hood, Azim Premji, Craig Venter, Michael Dell, and many others. FiReStarters are selected based on the strength of their innovations and their potential to bring positive change to the world, and are showcased during the conference both at an exclusive investor reception and in panels throughout the event.
MD Revolution is the first company to leverage genomic assessments and mobile tracking tools to deliver personalized health programs. Patients and employees self-track their progress using RevUp, MD Revolution’s patent pending, software platform. RevUp is a clinically developed software platform. The platform integrates personal health plans, clinician coaching and incentives with remote monitoring of steps, activity intensity, heart rate, and nutrition logging. This combination creates a feedback loop that is scientifically proven to drive improved health outcomes and to reduce chronic risk factors.
Over 90% of MD Revolution’s patients have experienced statistically significant improvements in resting metabolism, body fat, visceral fat reduction, and improvements in cardiorespiratory fitness. These indicators have been proven in the latest scientific research to be the real drivers of chronic disease, which has now reached epidemic proportions in the United States.
“RevUp is the only platform that enables clinicians to receive automated alerts and provide personalized touches to participants. HR professionals can ensure employees are participating to earn incentives and that participation is driving health improvements. Participants can self track their progress as they work towards personalized nutrition and fitness goals,” said Samir Damani, MD, PharmD, FACC, Founder & CEO of MD Revolution.
Future in Review is an annual gathering of world-class thought leaders, convened each year with the goals of providing the most accurate look forward in technology. FiRe is a world leader in exploring how technology drives the world economy, and in using technology to solve major social challenges. These goals have been consistently achieved through FiRe’s collaboration across technology-driven industries and through active support from the global FiRe community. Now in its 12th year, FiRe 2014 will take place May 20-23 at the beautiful Montage Hotel in Laguna Beach, California.
“As one of the launch platforms for the Quantified Self, with a consistent history of showcasing new trends in genetics, we are delighted to have MDRevolution joining us as a FiReStarter for FiRe 2014; they are the perfect combination of both of these worlds, and mark a sweet spot in bringing this mix of science and technology to the individual user,” said Mark Anderson, FiRe Chair and SNS CEO.
