Glooko, Inc., a leading provider of remote patient monitoring and digital health solutions for diabetes and other chronic conditions today announced it has acquired xbird, a Berlin-based health AI company developing JITAI (Just In Time Adaptive Intervention) technologies to support patients and their providers in predicting behavior and managing diabetes.

Using the latest AI and machine learning, xbird's technology has the capability of identifying health risks for people with diabetes by interpreting medical and behavioral data in a targeted manner and providing customized recommendations and behavioral nudges. Sensors via smartphones and wearables record a user's movements and analyze the data to create individualized behavioral profiles and personalized nudges to change patient behavior and lifestyle decisions. The addition of xbird expands Glooko's advanced analytics capabilities and tools, further broadening Glooko's platform offerings.

Sebastian Sujka, Chief Executive Officer and Co-Founder of xbird stated, "xbird and Glooko are a great fit. We share a commitment to providing solutions that address multiple chronic conditions, delivering measurable outcomes, and we have a common mission to broadly serve all patients in need. Our goal is to continue the design of digital health solutions for those living with these conditions and to make our capabilities accessible to as many patients as possible." Mr. Sujka will join Glooko as the Managing Director of Glooko GmbH, along with all of the xbird staff.
