CNBC reported that Apple wants to buy the startup Crossover Health. Perhaps the smartphone manufacturer plans to open its primary care facilities or seeking new people to the development of the application “Health”.
Crossover Health is a company which deals with providing first aid to workers of large corporations like Facebook.
Apple has long wanted to enter the medical services market, and therefore trying to “absorb” Crossover. Both sides have been conducting negotiations, but still have not come to any decision.
It is unknown what goals Apple. According to rumors, she wants to create its own network of clinics or to enter into partnership with existing ones.
“Talk about the development of the company in the direction of medicine have been going on for more than a year. However, it is unclear what they’re actually working at Apple. Probably, the management of the Corporation wants to open branded companies for the provision of primary health care”.
Apple started to show interest in medicine in 2014 by announcing HealthKit and Health app for iOS 8. Earlier this year, she introduced a new feature for the Apple Watch, which allows to observe the change of the pulse. Moreover, rumor has it that Apple is already working on a device for measuring the blood sugar level.
