Health assessment and Evidation

Creating a healthier lifestyle begins with an individual feeling empowered and informed to do so. Using the Evidation app, members can track their health information, connect to other fitness and health apps, and make engaging, smart decisions about their lifestyles.

The main difference between Evidation and other health apps lies in the points-based reward system we’ve created for our members.

Let’s explore the Evidation point system and discover the healthy actions members can take to earn daily points through exercise, data, and education.

Evidation 101: The point system

Using points as rewards for daily activity, education, and health monitoring is precisely how Evidation works. Along the way, members can track their physical and mental progress and create sustainable, long-term healthy habits that will stick.

This section will answer all your questions about collecting and redeeming points.

How do points work?

Points are based on your daily activity within the Evidation app and the physical exercise you perform that’s tracked through compatible wearable devices and fitness apps like MyFitnessPal, Apple Health, Strava, and many more.

Points can be earned from the data collected through your existing health and fitness apps and the information you input there. For example, logging your sleep, tracking your weight, and using a food diary are ways to collect points within Evidation.

Other data points you may track include the following:

  • Blood pressure
  • Glucose
  • Heart rate
  • Water consumption

Numerous forms of exercise will earn you points within the Evidation app, and these points are calculated and measured using different units, including:

  • Calories burned
  • Kcals
  • Kilometers
  • Laps
  • Meters
  • Miles
  • Minutes
  • Seconds
  • Steps

Depending on the form of exercise you’re performing, you could receive up to 100 points for tracked health activities each day.

Aside from physical exercise and health monitoring, research is integral to what Evidation contributes to the health industry and science.

Evidation Members may be able to participate in health-related studies that are specific or relevant to their conditions. For example, some Evidation Members have chronic pain and could potentially contribute their experiences to pain studies, gain insight into what may be going on, and share their learnings with their medical team to improve their lives.

Health research is essential to improving healthcare and individual treatments for various health conditions and ailments. Evidation Members can contribute to a better understanding of their conditions and earn points for participating along the way.

Ways to earn points

Within the Evidation app, members can earn points throughout the day in many ways.

If you’re already using a fitness tracker app or have a wearable device that tracks your activity, you can quickly sync your profile with Evidation, so the two can share data, earning you points along the way.

Evidation is compatible with the following fitness and health apps:

  • Apple Health

Once your Evidation account is confirmed and your apps are synced, it’s time to start earning points! Members can earn points in the Evidation app in several ways, including tracking your health activities and completing cards in the Evidation app.

These types of activities are equally important because they impact physical and mental health uniquely. Empowering our members with data points about their physical activity, tracking their sleep patterns, and what they eat each day can provide an unbiased look at what they’re doing well, what needs to be modified, and how they can improve through small, actionable changes.

Many people struggle with knowing where to start when it comes to improving their lifestyles, and we believe that a point-based system can help individuals understand how to make small changes over time. In doing so, health habits are formed without anyone feeling overwhelmed or disheartened by a lack of instant progress.

Members can also rack up points by participating in unique activities within the app, like answering survey questions, participating in health programs and research studies, and reading articles.

We introduced Cards to the Evidation app as a way for members to earn more points and to educate people through relevant articles, tips, and educational resources.

Members can answer daily questions about their mood, mental health, physical activity, and much more within the cards prompted to them each day.

Access points information in the Evidation app

When you open the Evidation app, you’ll see how many points you’ve accrued thus far during the week. The Points History section provides a detailed look at your weekly activity within the app that tells you from which categories you’ve earned points and any surveys, polls, or information you’ve completed.

Evidation strives to challenge its members to participate daily in numerous healthy actions. Doing so creates long-lasting, sustainable habits that become part of your daily routine instead of a task you must think about or remember to do daily.

That’s why we offer points for different healthy actions that may seem small but can add up to significant healthy changes in a person’s lifestyle.

The benefit of connecting Evidation to your current fitness and health apps is that this data is already being tracked through apps like Apple Health or MyFitnessPal; by syncing these apps with Evidation, you’ll gain more insight into your health and wellness and earn free money along the way. What’s not to love?

For years, Evidation Members have been using the app to track their daily food intake, participate in relevant research studies, and increase their activity levels through accountability within the Evidation community.

Redeeming your points

Once you’ve earned 10,000 points, you can redeem them for $10 via PayPal, a prepaid VISA card, a gift card, or a bank deposit. You can also choose from various charities to donate the money you’ve earned.

Redeeming points is straightforward; once you’ve earned 10,000 points, you’ll see a prompt to redeem your points at the top of the home page, just follow the instructions to claim your reward. You’ll receive an email within five business days, in which you’ll select how you’d like to receive your reward (gift card, Paypal transfer, direct deposit, or a charitable donation).

At this time, Evidation is available for people over 18 who live in the United States.

Do Evidation points expire?

As long as your Evidation account is active (meaning you’ve completed at least one card in the last 12 months), the points you’ve earned will not expire. We do encourage members to log in as frequently as possible so they don’t lose access to their hard-earned points. Plus completing cards daily is one of the easiest and fastest ways to earn points.

Benefits of using a points-based health app

Regardless of your physical health and daily habits, utilizing a points-based health and wellness application could significantly improve your lifestyle in multiple ways.

For one, it can help raiss awareness about your level of physical activity on a daily basis. Simple, easy-to-understand data can help members make informed decisions about their fitness goals or change their daily routines.

By participating in daily food tracking, exercising, logging sleep, weigh-ins, and monitoring health metrics like heart rate and blood pressure, members can begin making healthier, research-supported changes at their own pace to ensure they’re sustainable and manageable.

Reach your health goals with Evidation

Using Evidation, tracking your health and wellness has never been easier or more efficient. By sharing your data, we’ll reciprocate with relevant health information, trends, and insights that you can leverage to make healthy changes in your everyday life.

Evidation values and respects our members’ privacy, so we use technical and administrative safeguards to protect the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of your information. We do not sell any personal information and will only share your health data information outside of Evidation with your consent.
