  • Apple to turn iPhone into hub of medical info

Now you can manage, store as well as share your medical information with your trusted doctor soon with the help of Apple.

In a report from CNBC, it seems that Apple has another secret team that is working on transforming your iPhone into a one-stop-shop for all medical related information.

The report explains that Apple has a secretive team within its heath unit that is working with developers, hospitals, and other industry groups about the possibility of integrating clinical data into the iPhone.

To boost its efforts in this area, Apple is reportedly considering potential acquisitions of companies in the cloud hosting space. Those who're suffering from one or more ailments find it very hard to maintain their medical data in papers and provide them to their doctors even in this digital age. According to health experts, this problem is often referred to as the "interoperability crisis" - and it is hurting patients, The lack of data-sharing between health providers leads to unnecessary mistakes and missed diagnoses, Aneesh Chopra, former US Chief Technology Officer, was quoted as saying.
