Leaks confirm that Apple is working on new iOS 8 with capabilities to monitor one’s health using an called Healthbook. According to screenshots leaked by 9To5Mac, Apple is aiming to significantly expand on how smartphones track and record data on a user’s health and fitness with Healthbook.
The screenshots show information cards part of the Healthbook app aiming to give iPhone users ability to track physical activity, nutrition, blood sugar, sleep pattern, respiratory rate, heart rate, hydration level, oxygen saturation, weight and blood pressure. If this were to happen, this would change the way we use health care services. I am really have to see Apple push this into mainstream as this would set a more standardized EMR service across the globe. Kudos to Apple!
