About us

Who we are

HealthStatus LLC was formed in 1998 (reorganized as an LLC in 2016), and is a privately held company located in Indianapolis, Indiana. By using the algorithms from the Healthier People project of the Carter Center of Emory University, an Internet based health risk assessment was created, along with several calculators to take a quick snapshot of a person’s health. This coincided with the mission of HealthStatus: To enable people to quickly and easily determine and track the status of their health and health risks compared to U.S. national averages, and scientific standards. We continue on this mission by adding more assessments and calculators and making them available to consumers by visiting our site. Our tools are also available for license by other websites, please visit HRA.net if you are interested in adding our assessments to your website, or using them in your wellness program.

Statement of Faith

  • We believe the Bible to be the inspired, the only infallible, authoritative Word of God. (2 Timothy 3:16-17)
  • We believe there is only one God, eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit. (Matthew 28:19)
  • We believe in the deity of Christ (John 1:1), in His virgin birth (Matthew 1:18, 25), in His sinless life (Hebrews 4:15), in His miracles, in His vicarious and atoning death through His shed blood (Hebrews 9:15-22), in His bodily resurrection (1 Corinthians 15:1-8), in His ascension to the right hand of the Father (Acts 1:9-11) and in His personal return in power and glory (Hebrews 9:27-28).
  • We believe that the blood of Jesus Christ provides the sole basis for the forgiveness of sin. Therefore, only those who place their faith in Jesus’ sacrifice on the cross will be saved. When a person believes in Jesus, God–the Holy Spirit, gives that person a brand new life–he or she is born anew. (Luke 24:47; John 3:3; Romans 10:13-15; Ephesians 2:8; Galatians 4:6)
  • We believe that all Christians should live for Christ and not for themselves. By obeying God’s commands as found in the Bible and by yielding daily to the Spirit of God, every believer should mature and be conformed to the likeness of Jesus Christ. (Philippians 1:20-26; John 14:23-24; Romans 12:1-3)
  • We believe that those who have placed their faith in Jesus Christ will live eternally with God (heaven), and that those who have not placed their faith in Jesus will live eternally without God (hell). (Matthew 25:46; Mark 9:43-48; Revelation 19:20; Revelation 20:1-15; Revelation 21:8)
