The company Google announced the acquisition of the Senosis Health start-up, specializing in developing applications that can monitor and diagnose various conditions.
In September, Senosis developed the HemaApp application, which can be used by a smartphone to track hemoglobin levels and detect anemia.
Another application – Bilicam – allows using a camera and a flash to identify jaundice in newborns.
Applications SpiroSmart and SpiroCall allow you to determine the parameters of the function of the lungs, for which patients simply need to blow into the microphone of their smartphone.
The acquisition of Senosis expands the portfolio of Google’s digital health projects and adds rumors that the company plans to fully enter the medical care zone.
In April, CNBC reported that the technical giant is looking for computational biologists, robotics specialists and research scientists, and noted that the company is focused on health care.
