Apple in Talks With Major U.S. Medical Professionals to Use Its HealthKit Platform
According to the latest reports from people familiar with the matter, Apple is currently in talks with major U.S. medical professionals concerning the possibility to use company's new HealthKit platform for storing medical data. Such companies as Mount Sinai, Cleveland Clinic, John Hopkins and Allscripts have been involved into the talks, Reuters reports.
If the negotiations turn out to be successful, the guys from Cupertino will provide the medical professionals with special development tools aimed at making the HealthKit and Health app even more efficient and functional.
Apple is said to be pushing Healthkit and its Health app as being an all-in-one solution for medical professionals to store patient data like blood pressure, pulse, and weight. Apple is also hoping that physicians will use the available data to improve diagnostics and treatment decisions.
As you probably know, both Health and HealthKit are expected to be released with iOS 8 this fall. The release may take place in September.
