  • Mayo Clinic in Sync with HealthKit

    Despite hitting a few bumps in the road upon rollout last month, Apple's HealthKit is growing rapidly in the early days of October, as more and more health and wellness giants adopt the platform.

    In recent days, the Mayo Clinic confirmed plans to sync-up with HealthKit and, so far, we're told everything is going very well. That much is clear from a new report by an NBC News affiliate in Rochester, Minnesota.

    Sources at the Mayor Clinic confirm that the respected institution's app is now completely integrated with HealthKit.

    The app allows users to find health information quickly, contact their care team directly, and manage their appointment schedule.
    “What patients will be able to do is keep this info in Health Kit,” says Mayo Clinic’s Dr. John Wald. “When they see their providers, they will be able to share it with their providers in a one-on-one visit. In the future, we should be able to share that information electronically with providers once we define what information is important to share.”

    Dr. Wald believes HealthKit gives patients a secure and convenient way of staying on top of their health, which is exactly what more healthcare companies are hoping to similarly facilitate through HealthKit in the near future.
