At the ongoing Let’s loop us in event, Apple has launched a new open-source health platform called CareKit. Apple’s new CareKit essentially is a platform that lets users build their own healthcare apps. Apple highlight an app on CareKit for Parkinson’s disease. This app essentially lets users track how their medicines and exercises are helping in slowing the spread of the disease.
Apple’s CareKit is different from the ResearchKit platform, which essentially let scientists collect data from users for their studies. CareKit, on the other hand, lets users keep a track of their medical data on their own, and then choose to share with physicians and family.
CareKit open-source platform will be available from next month onwards.
