You iPhone could soon turn into a hub of your medical information

What Apple wants to do is make the iPhone the place for users to store all the medical data that a doctor could possibly need and to share that data with the doctor on command.

CNBC reported that a secretive team in Apple's health unit has been in talks to consolidate medical data such as allergy lists, lab results and the likes to the iPhones. More details in the full report linked below.

In the recent months, Apple has been in conversations with health IT industry groups that can help them achieve their goals. It can be hard for patients to access their medical information like lab data, prescriptions and other clinical data. In addition to this, Apple is rumored to be looking for startups specializing in the cloud hosting space for acquisitions which would further be integrated into the scheme.

South Korea have been regular qualifiers even if they have a modest record at the finals themselves. The KFA has not decided who will take over as coach for the final two qualifiers.

Apple's aim is to stop the fragmentation of health data across multiple services and instead put everything into one place. The first is The Argonaut Project, a private initiative to promote the adoption of open standards for health information.

For instance, Apple's Healthkit focuses on health and activity data.

Bud Tribble, Apple's vice president of software technology, has been personally involved with the latter group, two of the people said. The company has also hired some of the top developers involved with FHIR, an increasingly popular protocol for exchanging electronic health records, the report said.

Jeff Flake of Arizona, who was practicing with the House members, described hearing "dozens and dozens and dozens of shots fired". Two Capitol Police officers, identified as special agents David Bailey and Crystal Griner, were wounded while protecting Scalise.

"At any given time, only about 10 to 15 per cent of patients care about this stuff", said Micky Tripathi, president and CEO of the MA eHealth Collaborative and a health IT expert. Vanguard Group Inc. now owns 343,783,273 shares of the iPhone maker's stock valued at $49,387,905,000 after buying an additional 6,237,609 shares during the period.

That's not to say that work has been unsuccessful; the Apple Watch made headlines recently after it was used as a platform to detect a common heart abnormality more accurately than conventional methods, and a non-invasive glucose monitoring prototype spotted on Tim Cook's wrist could make the wearable an essential medical device for millions.

It will be interesting to see what plans Apple has for medical records sharing.
