HealthStead connects health to the homestead by enhancing decision making and providing both absolute and relative risk faced by individual patients in relation to their neighborhood. Using cutting edge technology, HealthStead utilizes the latest scientific research to create reports based on national and local data, electronic health records, and a health risk assessment survey completed by patients.
