Consultant360: Commentary on Apple Watch Data

The Corrie team recently published a commentary regarding the potential of Apple Watch healthcare data in understanding patient health and evaluating current guidelines and recommendations. Below is an excerpt from the commentary:

“As the first team to use the CareKit, ResearchKit, and Apple Watches (first generation), we recognize the value in collating de-identified health data to discover important signals in health outcomes. We recognize these studies as an opportunity for democratizing medical research through collaboration between researchers and consumers.”

The authors touch on topics such as the democratization of health data, patient empowerment through mobile health, and the protection of patient data and privacy. Click here to access the commentary.
