The health check feature is designed to be used by components that need to ensure a compatible wireformat, agreed upon semantics and possible forms of interactions between system components that need to determine the “liveliness” of computing nodes in a bigger system. Health checks are used to signal the state of a computing node to other machines (cloud orchstration frameworks, i.e. kubernetes service controller). It’s not intended (although could be used) as a monitoring solution for humans.
