Fitbit, Google launch new service to help hospitals gather data from wearables

Google Cloud and Fibit are launching a new service that aims to help hospitals gather and interpret data from wearables and fitness trackers. 

The new service, dubbed Device Connect for Fitbit, includes tools to help health systems and researchers manage enrollment, consent and quickly add wearables data to the cloud to easily access analytics and visualization tools, according to a Sept. 27 press release. 

The service aims to help hospitals gain a more holistic view of their patients outside of clinical care settings. 

This is the first public initiative to emerge since Google acquired Fitbit for $2.1 billion in 2021.
