Unprocessed Health Data

With “Unprocessed Health Data” we refer to Health Data being stored as it is, obtained from Health Data Sources without being processed by our technology. This Health Data was generated with the End-User's wearable, while we collect that Data from the Health Data Sources.

Processed Health Data

With “Processed Health Data” we refer to Health Data that has been processed (Harmonization, Standardization, Unification, and Normalization) by our technology. We collect and more importantly process the End-User's Health Data to actually be able to make use of the available data.

Harmonized Health Data

“Harmonized Health Data” means a consistent presentation of Health Data in a single format with common units.

Standardized Health Data

“Standardized Health Data” means Health Data matching calculations between Health Data Sources.

Unified Health Data

“Unified Health Data” means providing to you "our Client" with a single Data Set (the most accurate one available) whenever duplicated Data Sets were found. This can happen if an End-User has two wearable devices or two Health Data Providers connected or when the End-User connects a Health Data Provider as well as a Health Data Collector.

Normalized Health Data

“Normalized Health Data” means Health Data being transformed to establish unified scales and ranges.


Components

With “Components” we refer to the technology involved in RookConnect to be able to provide you with the previously mentioned functionalities. These components represent “parts” of the overall technology solution we provide.
