A new report claims that Apple is in talks with a number of major medical and health organization to have them support their HealthKit efforts that were announced last June as part of the upcoming iOS 8.
Reuters reports, via unnamed sources, that Apple has has talks with Mount Sinai, the Cleveland Clinic and Johns Hopkins on how they could support HealthKit, which has been designed to give users of the iPhone and iPad a central location to check out data from devices such as a fitness tracker or a heart monitor. Apple has already announced partnerships for HealthKit from Nike and the Mayo Clinic.
Apple would not comment on these latest reports but a spokesperson for the Cleveland Clinic did admit that it is using a beta of HealthKit and providing feedback back to Apple. What do you think of the company's push to server health care providers?
