International Business Machines Corp. (IBM)’s Apps To Feature on Apple Inc. (AAPL)’s Watch

There are already smart watches and fitness bands on the market, so Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) is highlighting the health features of its Watch as much as it is highlighting its tech features. Thus, it is important for it to make those fitness features more effective. Apple Inc. has two great features on its smartwatch: HealthKit and ResearchKit. What they do not have is a systematic way of storing that information and reproducing it for use by doctors and insurance companies. As reported by CNBC’s Landon Dowdy, Apple is entering into a partnership with International Business Machines Corp. (NYSE:IBM) to work on special apps that will do just that, storing patients’ data and allowing for doctors and insurance companies to access it.

“IBM will partnership with Apple, Johnson & Johnson and Medtronics to put health data from Apple Watch into the hands of doctors and insurance companies. IBM will upload heart rates to doctors. Insurance companies can link Apple’s data with their records. Johnson & Johnson will join IBM to build new apps to help patients. Medtronics will develop a diabetes system that will help deliver the right dose of insulin,” Dowdy said.

International Business Machines Corp. (NYSE:IBM)’s app for Apple’s Watch will upload users’ HealthKit and ResearchKit data to a cloud storage from where it can be accessed by doctors, medical researchers and insurance companies. International Business Machines Corp. will also be working with Johnson & Johnson (NYSE:JNJ) and Medtronic PLC (NYSE:MDT) to build apps that will optimize medical data collected by the Watch, making it lot more useful for users. This indeed is a great initiative in the field of healthcare by International Business Machines Corp. and Apple Inc. Digital healthcare will provide doctors with a lot of detailed medical data which will allow them to personalize treatments for their patients more efficiently.

International Business Machines Corp. (NYSE:IBM) has set up a new healthcare data analytics unit called Watson Health which will provide the users of Apple’s Watch space on its cloud system to store their medical records. It is great to see the technology sector enter the healthcare sector with so much focus. It is also great news for Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL)’s business expectations for its Watch. With companies like Johnson & Johnson and Medtronic PLC (which is the world’s best maker of medical devices) getting on board, we can be assured that the technology on Apple’s Watch will prove to be beneficial to the health of many of its wearers.
