Review: Semler Heart App for iPhone – The Interactive Way to Beat Heart Disease

Cardiac disease and heart attacks are the #1 cause of death in the United States. Sadly, many people aren’t aware of the simple things they can do to prevent cardiac disease. While there are a number of apps in the iOS App Store that help you track your daily steps, internationally known preventative cardiologist Dr. Herb Semler, M.D., M.S., F.A.C.C felt he could do better, and developed his own app, Semler Heart, for the iPhone.

Overview

 

Semler Heart 1.0 was released on October 3, 2016. It claims to be the first interactive mobile app that not only tracks your daily, weekly, and monthly step totals, but also offers useful medical heart facts and other useful information to help users reduce their risk of cardio vascular disease and the associated health problems that come along for the ride.

 

Review: Semler Heart App for iPhone - The Interactive Way to Beat Heart Disease

 

Semler Heart is a simple to use app, which integrates with Apple HealthKit to track a user’s daily steps. The app’s information page in the App Store also mentions the app awards points for users to be redeemed at retail partners, however, I didn’t find any such thing noted inside the app itself. Perhaps they are still working out the details with the retail partners at the moment. We’ll keep an eye on that and let you know when more information is available.

 

According to the Simler Health Perks website, The Semler Heart Health Plan is based on “Seven Pillars” of heart healthy living. They are:

  • Stop smoking
  • Control high blood pressure
  • Control diabetes
  • Control cholesterol
  • Increase physical activity
  • Follow a heart healthy diet
  • Avoid obesity

 

Review: Semler Heart App for iPhone - The Interactive Way to Beat Heart Disease

 

The app is designed to get users to increase their physical activity, by tracking their daily steps. Users can set a step goal, be it a daily one, or weekly or monthly goal. By encouraging the user to set goals, this encourages them to meet or exceed the goal, thereby becoming more active, and as a valuable side effect, becoming more healthy.

 

Along with the daily step tracking, the app also offers you a history of your previous days’ step totals, as well as quick tips from Dr. Semler on how to lead a healthier life. Users can get a new tip with just a tap of their iPhone’s screen. Tips include everything from informative information such as: “Four conditions you can control are regular physical activity, normal weight, blood pressure, and never smoke.” All the way to “The More You Know” type blurbs such as: “Stop heart disease before it stops you!” And, a little bit of everything in between, including reminders that you can collect points that can be spent at retail partners. (Again, I didn’t see this option in using the app, but I am a writer, and lead a sedentary lifestyle. Perhaps I just didn’t rack up enough activity for the feature to kick in.)

 

Verdict

 

I found the Semler Heart app to be an excellent way to track my steps, and the accuracy of the app seemed to jibe with other apps I have on my iPhone and Apple Watch that track steps. The tips the app supplies range from the ridiculous to the sublime, which is par for this type of app. The ability to set goals, and to be able to trade in points earned for benefits at participating retailers is also a nice feature.

 

If you’re looking for an app that will track your daily steps, encourage you to do better each day, by bribing you if necessary, check out the Semler Heart app. At the rock-bottom price of free, the price is certainly right, and you might even live longer.

 

Rating: 3.5/5.0

 

Semler Heart for iPhone is free, and is available in the App Store. It requires 16.9MB of free space on your device, and requires iOS 9.0 or higher. [GET IT NOW!]

Analyze Speed of Staff Response with Proxidyne Retail Analytics

Naperville, Illinois – Proxidyne today announced the addition of Response Time Analytics to its latest release allowing retail and other managers to continuously monitor staff response times empowering them to adjust staff levels and training to improve sales and customer service.

 

Proxidyne Response Time Analytics are available immediately to new and existing customers with Proxidyne Platform 4 and above. Response Time Analytics operate with most Proxidyne Sensor and Button solutions and can be remotely managed.

 

“Our Proxidyne Response Time Analytics have been helping our retail customers achieve their goals of improving sales and customer service with real time measurements and alerts,” said Proxidyne Co-Founder & CEO Tim Perfitt. “With the latest release, we’re helping managers measure the quickness of the staff response which helps them confirm that their staffing levels and training are appropriate for the customer traffic.”

 

Response Time Analytics helps managers extract actionable information from measurements of the time between a customer request or automated dispatch and the time when the staff person arrives to provide assistance. Each button or sensor is tracked individually so its response time data can be compared with data from other workflows in the same locations or across workflows at any or all of the locations monitored by the Proxidyne Platform.

 

When they arrive to assist a customer, staffers confirm their arrival by pressing a wireless button or automatically via a wearable Bluetooth fob or app running on an iPhone, iPod touch, iPad or other smart device. Response times are communicated wirelessly to the on premises Proxidyne Bridge appliance which uploads them for Analytics by the central Proxidyne Dashboard.

 

Customers may combine and analyze response time data with complementary data from other sources such as sales history and staffing schedules. Data may be downloaded as Excel or .CSV files or imported into other analytics platforms programmatically and continuously via Web services and other common APIs. Access to data and all elements of the Proxidyne Platform are secured with Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) and Public Key Infrastructure (PKI) X.509 digital certificates.

 

Proxidyne continues to improve the Response Time and other Analytics capabilities and the entire Proxidyne Platform with enhancements to the software and hardware selections that meet the requirements of its customers as they harness the power of wireless sensor networks to help them achieve their business goals.
