Sleep Expert Leaves Apple For Dr. Oz JV
Roy J.E.M. Raymann, who, as we reported yesterday, left Apple's sleep team a month ago, has moved to SleepScore Labs, a joint venture between ResMed, Dr. Oz Media, and Pegasus Capital Advisors. He will serve as Vice President of Sleep Science and Scientific Affairs.
First announced this year at CES, SleepScore Labs is "currently in the process of examining how people sleep by compiling and analyzing the most comprehensive and accurate collection of consumer sleep data on the planet," the group writes on its website. "SleepScore Labs will use this data to deliver ultra-personalized insights, coaching, and validated solutions that enable you to make informed decisions about the behavioral and environmental factors that affect your sleep."
“SleepScore Labs is on a mission to not only educate and help people with their sleep, but to share holistic solutions that can change the way people feel and live,” Raymann said in a statement. “Measuring your sleep will be comfortable and effortless, your data will be actionable and insightful, and the solutions offered will be easy to use and effective – I look forward to bridging the gap between consumer awareness and effective solutions to maximize the benefits of a healthy night of sleep.”
Scott Gottlieb was officially confirmed this week as commissioner of the FDA. Gottlieb has a history with the mobile health space, having written multiple editorials arguing that the agency should take a lighter regulatory role with health apps. Our sister publication Healthcare IT News has more on the hire.
Health system innovation network Avia has also landed a former government heavyweight: former CMS director Andy Slavitt. Slavitt will serve as senior advisor to the company.
