Apple Stock News
For the latest Apple Stock News, AAPL closed at $146.34 on Monday, June 19th, 2017. It had gained 2.86% from its previous close of $142.27 per share.
It appears that Apple is working in tandem with medical start-up Health Gorilla, according to CNBC. Health Gorilla, according to two sources, is explicitly helping Apple incorporate medical diagnostic data into the iPhone. Health Gorilla focuses on giving doctors a full picture of a patient’s medical history through having medical information available on a cloud. Blood work, hospital tests, and lab tests are a few of the items currently being integrated.
Apple is attempting to solve a major issue in the medical field. Doctors often do not have full information on patients before and during treatment. If Apple can gather and securely maintain medical information on its devices, doctors would be able to easily access complete patient information. Apple plans on working with hospitals, labs, and imaging centers to help safely transfer information.
Patients will also benefit from this partnership between Apple and Health Gorilla. They will be able to view and share their lab results, allergy lists, and other medical information.
Apple and Health Gorilla have so far declined to comment on the partnership.
