How Complete Beginners are using an ‘Untapped’ Google Network to create Passive Income ON DEMAND

Samsung Electronics America, Inc. and WellDoc, a leading digital therapeutic company, announced today that Samsung Health users now have access to a new consumer version of WellDoc’s digital platform known as the Diabetes Wellness Program (DWP).

The DWP, which is integrated within the Samsung Health service, is a 12-week health and wellness program developed in collaboration with key partners, including the American Association of Diabetes Educators (AADE). It is designed to help adults with type 2 diabetes achieve a healthy lifestyle and to help manage their condition.

Samsung Health is a personal health service designed to empower individuals to manage their health and fitness. It features a comprehensive platform that displays user activity trends and provides health insights, telehealth services and helpful feedback to connect users, friends and experts all while promoting healthier lifestyles.

“The integration of key, consumer-facing aspects of our proprietary BlueStar® platform within the Samsung Health service is a very exciting next step as our partnership with Samsung continues to advance,” said WellDoc President and CEO Kevin McRaith. “The Diabetes Wellness Program allows individuals in the United States with Samsung Health on the latest Samsung Galaxy mobile phone the opportunity to become educated and empowered to more effectively manage their health and wellness and experience a better quality of life. It’s an invaluable option for the mass population to help manage their health and wellness, and we look forward to making it available outside of the U.S. in the near future.”

Individuals living with type 2 diabetes must pay close attention to their care each day, taking daily medications and/or administering insulin injections, measuring blood glucose levels, and adhering to a strict diet and lifestyle plan.

“Partnering with WellDoc in developing a comprehensive diabetes health and wellness program for Samsung Health users was a natural fit, and an important milestone in our overall chronic disease management strategy,” said Nana Murugesan, Vice President & General Manager, Services & New Business at Samsung Electronics America. “With WellDoc’s unique focus on clinical outcomes and user engagement in the digital health space, the Diabetes Wellness Program will give Samsung Health users an opportunity to effectively manage their chronic condition on the comprehensive platform.”

Apple launches in-house employee healthcare service, called AC Wellness

Apple is bringing employee healthcare in-house with a new line of clinics, called AC Wellness. On its website, the venture describes itself as “an independent medical practice dedicated to delivering compassionate, effective healthcare to the Apple employee population.” From what we can tell, it seems it aims to cover the functions of a primary care clinic, but with all the high-end trappings you’d expect from Apple. The About page of AC Wellness promises “high-quality care,” and a “unique patient experience.” It also states care will be “enabled by technology,” which isn’t particularly surprising, given health-tech has been an area of…

Apple Launching ‘AC Wellness’ Medical Clinics for its Employees

Apple is planning to open two “AC Wellness” health clinics for its employees and their families this spring, reports CNBC. The clinics, detailed on an accompanying AC Wellness website, will serve Apple employees in Santa Clara County, which is where its Apple Park and One Infinite Loop campuses are located.

One of the clinics, the Apple Park Wellness Center, will be located on the Apple Park campus, according job listings posted LinkedIn, Glassdoor, and Indeed.

AC Wellness Network is an independent medical practice exclusively dedicated to delivering compassionate, effective healthcare to the Apple employee and dependent population at the Apple Wellness Centers in Santa Clara Valley, including the new Apple Park Wellness Center. AC Wellness Network believes that having trusting, accessible relationships with our patients, enabled by technology, promotes high-quality care and a unique patient experience.

AC Wellness job listings also describe the clinic experience, which is meant to offer a “unique concierge-like healthcare experience” for employees and their dependents. Several positions are open at the AC Wellness locations ahead of their planned opening this spring, with Apple seeking physicians, nurses, a clinical exercise coach, a behavioral health partner, and more.

As Apple prepares to launch its AC Wellness clinics, it has scaled back its partnership with Crossover Health, its current in-house clinic provider. Apple considered purchasing Crossover Health at one point, but no deal materialized after several months of discussion.

Sources that spoke to CNBC said that Apple plans to use its medical clinics as a way to “test out” its health services and products. Apple is exploring several health-related advancements, such as non-invasive blood glucose monitoring, and it has begun heavily investing in health-related research with CareKit and ResearchKit.

Most recently, Apple launched a medical study in partnership with Stanford to determine whether the Apple Watch can accurately predict irregular heart rhythms. The study is live and can be joined by downloading the Apple Heart Study app from the App Store.

During my brief stints using Samsung Galaxy smartphones, I eschewed many of the company’s branded apps, but Samsung Health was one of the few exceptions. I was impressed by how robust and slick it was and found myself tracking my blood pressure and SpO2 level every now and then just for fun. Now the Korean tech giant is bringing that health app know-how to Samsung HeartWise, a new health app built for a niche audience: patients who want to keep up with their doctor-recommended heart wellness program via their smartphone and Gear S3 smartwatch.
