Today we're learning that Apple has acquired a health related company called Gliimpse. The Gliimpse team describes themselves as "a well-heeled team of self-funded entrepreneurs with deep roots in the business of healthcare, technology and building successful ventures. From Apple to SAP, Salesforce to Microsoft plus eight startups, three exits and an IPO, we're seasoned veterans. Our CEO's Kaiser project helped improve millions of patient's lives by radically automating their access to data. This time, we're aiming higher than affecting a few million people – we want all 317 million people in America to liberate their health by liberating their data."
Fast Company is reporting today that they've learned that Apple's ambitions in the health sector continues to expand, with its digital health team making its first known acquisition of personal health data startup Gliimpse.
Silicon Valley-based Gliimpse has built a personal health data platform that enables any American to collect, personalize, and share a picture of their health data. The company was started in 2013, and funded by serial entrepreneur Anil Sethi, who has spent the past decade working with health startups, after taking his company Sequoia Software public in 2000. He got his start as a systems engineer at Apple in the late 1980s.
