Fitbit announced today that it has acquired a small, Boston-based software startup called Twine Health for an undisclosed amount.Twine Health probably isnt a name that will resonate with a lot of people who dont follow digital health closely, but its a collaborative software platform aimed at workplace wellness providers. It tracks chronic diseases and connects patients with health coaches and doctors for guidance. It was founded in 2014, and according to Crunchbase, had raised nearly $10 million in funding prior to being bought.A spokesperson for Fitbit said that nearly all of Twine Healths employees will join Fitbit, specifically Fitbits Health Solutions Group, and that Twine co-founder and chief executive John Moore will become Fitbits medical director. Fitbit also says there wont be disruption in service, and that Twine customers will still have access to the platform.
