Apple acquires CEO of Mango Health, a startup that helps people keep track of their drugs – CNBC


But it is also possible that Oberfest's expertise fits into Apple's existing initiatives, including its Apple Watch, which focuses on behavior change, and is a health software service, such as HealthKit and ResearchKit.

The mango president Yadin Shemmer was promoted to chief executive officer in November. Oberfest has updated his LinkedIn profile with his new role this week.

Apple declined to comment on the rental. Oberfest also did not share what he would work with on Apple.

The background of Oberfest includes health care and technology. Before starting Mango Health, which is supported by Kleiner Perkins and Express Scripts, a public company in the pharmacy benefits space, has worked in games and social media. Oberfest was a senior vice president of MySpace, before joining a mobile video game company called ngmoco.

Mango Health has raised just over $ 8 million in risk capital since it was launched in 2012.
