Apple is putting consumer health records in the palm of your hand. 온라인카지노

Coming with iOS 11.3, teased today in Apple’s press release. This seems like a big deal!

I’m hyped for this. I’ve been paying attention to my health a bit more this year. I started going to the gym over the summer and have lost some weight.

I check my blood pressure at the Higi machine at the grocery store. Healthy. I also got a checkup with the doctor this year and was told my stats were "textbook" examples of good health. Whew!

Anyway, the Health app keeps a lot of this information. 온라인바카라

Having a one-stop-shop for all my health metrics and medical tests seems like such a great idea. Apple isn’t the first to think of it. Google and Microsoft both tried and failed to implement similar initiatives.

Apple’s privacy focus continues to pay off. Patients and doctors can be confident knowing medical information is secure and encrypted. Other tech companies can’t really make the same pitch for patient privacy as Apple.

What do you think? Will you buy an iOS device to track your health data?
