Health Risk Score uses patients' oral health data to predict their overall health. The score is shown on a scale of 0 to 100, with higher scores indicating a greater health risk. The goal is that dentists will use the score to discuss health risks with their patients and come up with a plan to help patients' manage and improve their oral and overall health.

Sikka Software created the Health Risk Score tool using deidentified patient data, mortality analysis, survival analysis, and machine learning. Patients with regular dental checkups and who treat oral health problems early tend to have lower Health Risk Scores than those who are less vigilant in their oral care.

Health Risk Score is free for those who already use Practice Mobilizer. Practitioners must opt-in to use the tool.
