At Clinemetrica our primary goal is to help each individual attain the best possible physical and mental health throughout their life.
To accomplish this goal, we draw on the scientific expertise and clinical experience of our health professionals from the McGill Comprehensive Health Improvement Program (CHIP) to educate, engage, and enable individuals to live healthy, happy, and productive lives for as long as possible.
The MyHealthCheckup web-based programs that form the cornerstone of our health promotion services are based on the best scientific evidence available to maximize the probability of success for each participant.

Among 10,120 individuals treated for dyslipidemia, optimal adherence with daily lipid medication during the previous month was reported by 72%, while 28% had missed taking medication on at least one day or discontinued completely.

Results from the Canadian Navy’s weight loss program at CFB Halifax presented at the Canadian Cardiovascular Congress in Vancouver on October 26, 2014.
We evaluated the effectiveness of a web-based weight loss program that promoted increased physical activity, healthy eating, and Low-Glycemic Index energy bars to replace a daily meal. Among the 67 participants who started, the average weight loss over 4 weeks was 2.6lbs, ranging from + 6lbs to -15lbs. Twenty people lost over 5 pounds and there was a significant (p=0.005) dose-response where more frequent use of the site was positively associated with greater weight loss.
