Apple Launches CareKit Starting With Four Health Apps

Posted by · 13821 views · Translate
Apple launched CareKit today, an open source software framework that lets developers build apps that help you manage your medical conditions.

Rather than relying solely on doctor visits, you’ll be able to regularly track your symptoms and medications, and even share the information with your care team for a bigger — and better — picture of your health.

CareKit has gone live in four launch partner apps...

Grow Nurture:
Glow Nurture is the world’s most advanced and comprehensive pregnancy tracker. Powered by data, designed for simplicity, this app rewrites the rules for what a pregnancy app should be. It is completely customizable so that we nurture YOUR pregnancy and your baby.

Apple is expected to post CareKit to its GitHub later today. The company says it will work with the developer community to continue building on the first four modules they've designed, that include:
● Care Card helps people track their individual care plans and action items, such as taking medication or completing physical therapy exercises. Activities can automatically be tracked and entered using sensors in Apple Watch or iPhone;
● Symptom and Measurement Tracker lets users easily record their symptoms and how they’re feeling, like monitoring temperature for possible infections or measuring pain or fatigue. Progress updates could include simple surveys, photos that capture the progression of a wound or activities calculated by using the iPhone’s accelerometer and gyroscope, like quantifying range of motion;
● Insight Dashboard maps symptoms against the action items in the Care Card to easily show how treatments are working; and
● Connect makes it easy for people to share information and communicate with doctors, care teams or family members about their health and any change in condition.
