Tel Aviv-based Sweetch develops an artificial-intelligence health and risk assessment app for chronic conditions
Pennsylvania-based healthcare system WellSpan Health has partnered with Tel Aviv-based Sweetch Health Ltd., a startup developing an artificial-intelligence-based health and risk assessment app for chronic conditions, the two announced Wednesday. The app, which will be made available to WellSpan’s 15,000 employees, among them primary care and specialty physicians and advanced practice clinicians, will be used to augment WellSpan’s diabetes treatment program, according to the statement.
