Apple HealthKit Creates Opportunity For Better Health

Jonathan Globerman, Apple HealthkitGetting fit in modern times is getting easier than ever. You’ll find that you will have a great deal of fitness options to look through in terms of digital help. One such option that is getting a bit of buzz right now is that of the collaborative work between Apple and the Mayo Clinic. The two have partnered up to create what very well may be one of the most compelling apps to be released in recent memory. The question remains, however, whether or not it will be effective in helping people get to optimal health.

The Boost of Tech Fitness

More so than ever before people are combining their technical equipment with their personal information on the go. Smartphones, tablets, and even wearable devices communicate with programs that monitor a number of things. From what you’re eating, to how many steps you’ve taken, to tracking your daily routine, there’s an app out there for everything that you can possibly want to do and keep track of in regards to your health. It’s within that framework that HealthKit seems to be working.

The Advantage of HealthKit

This application takes information from other apps that you have running for health and wellness, as well as other information to give you a more streamlined view of health and wellness. It can also track vital signs, blood pressure, and so much more. This helps doctors configure a plan of treatment that is based on real world data, and not just conjecture or an in office visit. With an integrated database of records, you’ll find that the application takes on the role of being the doctor’s and patient’s middleman. This takes the guess work out of medicine, and helps streamline the process of getting well.

The Long March

Even with the Mayo Clinic and Apple’s partnership in this application, people may not be so quick to adopt things. Having health information on a phone, talking to a database can be somewhat scary for people that aren’t keen on having personal information floating in the cloud. With the recent breaches that led to leaked photos, this becomes a security concern for some individuals.

AT the end of the day, health is moving mobile. If doctors can get more patients to provide real information and data on the fly, they could definitely keep many healthy and treat patients with relative ease. The advantage of the application is to monitor data and information, as well as keep active moving forward. Combined with existing health and wellness apps, this is definitely worth looking into. With the big names of the Mayo Clinic and Apple at the helm, this may be a revolutionary transmission.
