Apple’s New Health Products are Major Disruptive Innovations in Healthcare According to the American Telemedicine Association
Date:9/9/2014

Washington, DC (PRWEB) September 09, 2014

The American Telemedicine Association (ATA) recognizes Apple's new technology including its Health app, HealthKit and iWatch as major disruptive innovations in healthcare. The new products demonstrate how advanced telecommunications can be used to transform the delivery of health services by allowing consumers to seamlessly monitor their own health and fitness information, and ultimately share the data with their health providers.

“These developments enable consumers to take their personal health data into their own hands where it belongs,” said Jonathan Linkous CEO of ATA. “We look forward to seeing how empowering consumers in this new way changes modern healthcare delivery.”

One of the most important aspects to this announcement is that Apple has chosen to integrate its technology with health provider systems and electronic record platforms. Previous efforts to market new health devices have often chosen to compete with providers and market stand-alone products rather than work to bring doctors, hospitals and consumers together in a connected approach to healthcare.
