AliveCor’s standalone Apple Watch heart monitor is serious about health, not fitness

AliveCor’s standalone Apple Watch heart monitor is serious about health, not fitness | Health 3.0 is born | Scoop.it
AliveCor’s Kardia Band is an Apple Watch wrist strap with an ECG sensor attached. Tapping on the sensor triggers a reading, and allows users to dictate symptoms and other relevant information. The results then go straight to a doctor over email, Re/code reports. The sensor is meant to detect arterial fibrillations, a type of arrhythmia that can increase the risk of stroke and cause chest pains or heart failure.

Apple launches CareKit to let people develop their own health apps

Apple launches CareKit to let people develop their own health apps | Health 3.0 is born | Scoop.it
Apple announced today the launch of CareKit, a new open source software platform that allows people to develop their own health care apps. The software's design is similar to that of Apple's ResearchKit, a software platform that lets scientists run studies through apps available in the Apple app store. However, CareKit seems to be a distinct platform separate from ResearchKit. The software will be available in April.CareKit was introduced by Apple's COO Jeff Williams during the company's "Loop you in" event today. He showed off an example of one of the apps created through the system that helps patients with Parkinson's disease track the effectiveness of the drugs they're taking or the exercise regimens they're on. That app was developed by Sage Bionetworks and the University of Rochester using data gathered from mPower — an app developed through ResearchKit that gathers health data from people with Parkinson's.

Open source Apple?  Something of an oxymoron, surely?
