After giving solutions for fitness tracking,tech giant Apple is planning to plunge into Digital Health Care. Soon Apple will be enabling a sound utilization of its earlier launched Apple Watch and Health Kit,by integrating the two into a useable health registering portable system. Apple will now upend its expertise towards Digital Health Care solutions.
Commerce, media, communications, music and entertainment have already taken advantage of cloud, mobility, data analytics.But Healthcare has completely missed the privilege of this ability to use sensors in rapid deployment, unlike an AI machine which makes use of the this technology. Apple aims to effectively connect lines between Healthcare industry, the High-tech industry and the role of the consumer.
Apple Plunges into Digital Health Care
Uptil now, we have seen tech giants initiating projects and coming up with solutions for people who want to measure their fitness.Many companies are making Wearable Devices to measure the fitness. Major emphasis is on how they can respond to people’s WANTS but unfortunately missing out on NEEDS .Well! I must say!!
its about time to get smart like Apple and solve problems for people who are sick, not just people who are fitness freaks.
Few digital health companies have the business model to turn into a large, successful company. The tech entrepreneurs do get excited about the next ,sleek looking, shinny model to be launched but there really aren’t many good examples of Digital Health companies solving big problems.
Probably because the high-tech industry has not taken the time to understand the complexity of Health Care. It’s rules-based, special-interest driven, illogical law based but still negotiation can make a way.
Apple Watch and Health Kit Framework.
Earlier Apple has been focusing more towards the fitness conscious user base. Introduction of smart watch and Health Kit provided fitness solutions;
Adding Apple Health Kit into your iOS and Apple Watch OS apps creates a more integrated user experience. When a customer provides permission for your app to read and write health and activity data to their Health app, your app can become a valuable health data source and it can use the shared data to bring more powerful health and fitness solutions.
Apple Watch is a line of smartwatches, or a touch-screen multi-performance watch, developed by Apple Inc.
