Health assessment and Evidation

We believe in using real-time data to drive your health journey--and to make advancements in medicine. With millions of members, Evidation is proud to partner with organizations across a variety of sectors--including biomedicine, healthcare, technology, non-profits, and government--to utilize data to create a healthier world.

What is Evidation?

In 2012, Evidation was founded with a mission to use everyday health data to help both Evidation users and health-related organizations understand health and disease. We believe that data can provide unique insights into world health that can drive positive change.

Evidation doesn't just use health data to help organizations create effective treatments and health initiatives. A key part of our work is helping our users understand health data (such as that collected by wearable fitness trackers). We're here to support you in your journey to wellness. The rewards we offer for taking positive action can help encourage you to stay on the right path.

Understanding Evidation

You already know that the insight provided by your fitness tracker is invaluable when it comes to figuring out how to best manage your health. At Evidation, we put your data to good use, allowing you to contribute to the greater good. We use your health information to drive health research, while keeping your privacy and safety protected every step of the way. 

We do not and will not sell your personal information. We will share your health data outside of Evidation only with your consent or at your direction, and to provide our services.

You can learn more about your privacy rights and how we use your personal information by visiting our Privacy Notice. You can also learn more by contacting our Privacy Office at

How Evidation works

Good news: if you're thinking about using Evidation as your health tracking app, the setup process is easy. You'll connect your activity tracking devices to the Evidation app, and we'll take it from there. We'll ask you to answer questions and read articles based on your personalized health needs.

After you connect your wearable fitness trackers to the Evidation app, you'll get information on your health data that allows you to make informed decisions that can boost your health and wellness. 

When you connect your health tracker, the Evidation app will provide you with insights on actions you take to feel great and move toward your health goals. We understand that improving your health is not a one size fits all process, and it's important to us to provide you with the personalized help that you need to become your healthiest self. When you complete action items that Evidation suggests, you'll be rewarded. For every 10,000 points you score on the Evidation app, you'll get a $10 reward, which you can either pocket or donate to a charity of your choice.

In addition to providing you with actionable items to encourage you to work toward becoming your healthiest self, we're proud to use the information we gather from your data to help healthcare professionals drive research forward--with your permission. If your data shows us that you're eligible to participate in health studies, we'll reach out to invite you to be a part of the future of medicine.

The science behind our approach to improving health

Transparency and trust are key when it comes to our mission, and we believe in a user-focused approach. We never share your data without your permission, and you have the ability to revoke data permissions at any time.

We're constantly working to develop new ways to help you--and our healthcare partners--make the most out of your health data. Our team has the expertise required to develop digital strategies that allow us to use your health data in the most effective way possible. With the ability to both move your health forward and drive medical research, Evidation uses your health data to benefit both you as an individual and the medical community as a whole.

Key features and benefits of using Evidation

When you use Evidation, you aren't just getting the same data that you're getting from your fitness tracker. Our insights can help you see how your daily choices and habits affect your well-being. When considering the pros and cons of fitness trackers, most of our users find that understanding data makes the use of a tracker a net positive.

We help you track things like your daily mood and sleep quality with simple check-in questions, then provide you with insights about how your activity impacts things like your mood or sleep–and how these things impact your activity levels. We're here to make your data work for you, one piece of information at a time.

From logging what you eat to taking surveys that provide insight on your daily habits, we'll use your information to help you understand your body, your health, and create a brighter future.

Why tracking matters

Knowledge is power, and when you use your fitness tracker paired with Evidation, you'll get the information you need to earn rewards--all while improving your health.

Let's take a look at some ways that you can stay motivated to move, track, and earn.

Try something new

Feeling bored of your routine? Trying something new can help. When you change up your workout, you're better able to avoid plateaus, protect yourself from injury, and stay engaged in your journey to health. Switching up your nutrition from time to time by trying new foods and recipes can also help lessen the likelihood of getting tired of your meal plan.

Set achievable goals

Setting attainable goals can help you stay on track, and seeing your progress can be one of the benefits of fitness trackers. Understanding your why, getting clear on what you want to achieve, and creating a timeline that keeps you accountable can help you move toward success.

Get competitive

Social motivation can push you forward in your goals, and friendly competition is a fantastic way to boost both your health and the health of those around you. Whether you compete against your achievements last week or you set up a weekly step challenge with your coworkers, working toward a win can help you stay on track.
