Apple has acquired Gliimpse, a personal health data startup that automates access to your medical records. The acquisition was first reported by Fast Company.

Gliimpse describes itself 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.

The company has built 'a magical machine'. It takes incomprehensible electronic medical records and turns them into understandable, standardized, coded elements (LOINC, RxNorm, CPT, ICD and SNOMED), and terminology that both humans and machines can easily understand and use.

Fast Company says the acquisition happened earlier this year. Apple recently 'confirmed' it with its usual statement: "Apple buys smaller technology companies from time to time, and we generally do not discuss our purpose or plans."
