Ringful provides healthcare services and preventive care through your smartphone. The company’s platorm, previewed at the DEMOfall 09 conference, lets hospitals, clinics and insurers build health-monitoring apps on consumer cell phones.
It offers services such as monitoring patients via their phones and delivering data from the patient to the caregiver. The service can thus reduce visits to doctors and hospitals and keep costs lower. Patients can upload data through the phone to their doctors via back-end health information systems such as Google Health, Microsoft HealthVault, and Dossia.
Rivals include Medapps, AllOneMobile, Health Buddy (Bosch), and iHealth Ventures. The company is targeting smartphones such as the iPhone, Android-based phones and other platforms. The Austin, Texas-based company raised seed funding from friends and family.
