The future of healthcare innovation

APIs are often considered the “invisible warriors of healthcare.” And as our founder Ross Mason points out in TechBeacon, there are lots of examples of how APIs are transforming healthcare. But could APIs push healthcare innovation even further?

It would be cheaper and easier to manage these conditions on an ongoing basis,

At Apple’s recent Worldwide Developers’ Conference (WWDC), Craig Federighi, SVP of Software Engineering, Apple, explained the driver for Apple Health and Healthkit as the need for greater interoperability between systems. He said, “Up to now, the information gathered by those (health) applications lives in silos … You can’t get a single, comprehensive picture of your health situation.”
