Aetna, the health insurer, has collaborated with Apple to develop a new health app for its customers. Through the use of an Apple Watch, the Attain app will provide Aetna customers with personalised goals, track their daily activity levels, recommend healthy actions, and ultimately reward them for taking these actions to improve their well-being.
Israeli telehealth startup Tyto Care has raised $9 million from Itochu of Japan, Sanford Health of the US, and Shenzhen Capital Group of China.
Tyto is a handheld kit and app that enables remote, guided medical exams and diagnosis using a 'digital stethoscope'.
The new funding comes a year after the company raised $24.5 million in a round led by Ping An Global Voyager Fund of China, and will be used for expansion in the US, Japan and China.
