How We Calculate Illness Levels
Kinsa aggregates infectious illness levels in real time through our broad network of smart thermometers and the connected Kinsa Health app. We use this information to estimate the percentage of the population afflicted with febrile illness (most commonly cold & flu) throughout the United States.
Kinsa Insights has become the earliest and most geo-precise signal for estimating infectious illness in the U.S., available to those who can help us take action to minimize the spread. External academics have validated Kinsa’s unprecedented localized illness detection and forecasting in peer-reviewed research. To learn more, visit us here.
