Apple reportedly making push in mobile health

All signs point to Apple aiming to make a splash in mobile medical health.

The tech giant’s so-called iWatch is said to be deep in development, with a heavy focus on mobile health and fitness tracking.
And it’s also been said that the long-rumored product could be announced by the end of this year.

Adding to the rumor mill’s churn: Prominent Apple executives, including Senior Vice President of Operations Jeff Williams and Vice President of Software Technology Budd Tribble, met with the Food and Drug Association last month, according to the association’s public calendar. The news was first reported Friday by The New York Times. The subject of the meeting, per the calendar, was “mobile medical applications.”

The Times also said, citing unnamed sources, that Kevin Lynch, the company’s vice president of technology, is involved in creating software for the watch, and that SVP of Technology Bob Mansfield has also been looking at health-related tech to connect to the iPhone.

Separately, 9to5Mac says iOS 8 will have a strong health component, including an app code-named “Healthbook.” The app will have the ability to track things like the number of steps taken by a user, calories burned, and weight gained or lost, and record record blood pressure, hydration, and glucose levels, according to the report. The new features notably step on the offerings of Nike and Fitbit, already popular on the platform.

Also tellingly, the company has reportedly made some key hires in the space. MacRumors said Apple hired away Michael O’Reilly from his post as chief medical officer at Masimo Corporation, an Irvine, Calif.-based medical technology company.

Apple hasn’t yet responded to a request for comment, but we’ll update this post if we hear back.

Say What? Top Five IT Quotes of the Week

Posted by eXactBot Hosting | News | Friday 31 January 2014 11:26 am

“As we think about the entire cloud services space for enterprise customers, this is immature. And with customers, there’s a lot of tire kicking, a lot of experimentation and test and dev. So overall, for anybody in the enterprise space, this is still very early days.”

VMware CEO Pat Gelsinger (ServerWatch)

“Bitcoin is a massively overhyped piece of noise in the marketplace in and of itself”
-David Furlonger, vice president and Fellow at research firm Gartner (eWEEK)

“The solution provider network plays a critical role in being able to deliver the benefits of a converged infrastructure without the proprietary bullsh*t that typically comes with it”

-Frank Frankovsky, Chairman of the Open Compute project (ServerWatch)

“Every large-scale Internet service that I’m aware is bound by the cost of the data center and they are all I/O bound. We deal with very few Internet applications at scale that are CPU bound.”
-Marc Andreessen, venture capitalist at Andreessen Horowitz (ServerWatch)

 

“We want to make it easier for people to contribute and find more ways to get people involved besides just bringing code”

Jonathan Bryce, executive director of the OpenStack Foundation (eWEEK)
