Apple acquires AI medical start-up Gliimpse: report
#Apple quietly acquired the personal health data start-up #Gliimpse, according to a report from Fast Company. Gliimpse takes a patient’s medical records and uses coding to produce a personalized, shareable electronic health record. Anil Sethi, a former systems engineer at Apple with a master’s of science from Johns Hopkins, founded the start-up in 2013, according to his LinkedIn profile. Apple did not immediately respond for comment. The Cupertino, Calif.-based tech giant has been expanding into digital health since releasing its HealthKit app — which helps users monitor personal health and fitness data — with the #iPhone 6 in 2014. It also worked with hospitals and doctors to create a research-tracking app for common diseases like Parkinson’s and breast cancer, and allowed anyone to become an organ donor using an iPhone.
