An Apple A Day Keeps The Doctor Away
CareKit is a new software framework by Apple that helps developers make apps to help users manage medical conditions. The information shared on the framework, such as symptoms and medications, can also be shared with the users’ medical team. Apps that track postsurgical needs, manage chronic conditions and also track diabetes are being developed on CareKit. Apple is working with leading hospitals, such as the Boston Children’s Hospital, Harvard Medical School and more to ensure that the apps are tailored to the needs of the patients and can also address challenges faced by modern medical researchers.
