Apple and HIPPA


Apple is not the first company to launch the smartwatch; however, it is destined to be the first to be used in the Health Care arena. The iWatch which launched on Tuesday have health apps that fitness gurus will be able to use to track their progress, calories intake, and monitor fitness goals. As these steps are just gateways into the real issues that may lie ahead, it is a glimpse into what we will see in the future of health care. Can you imagine having your doctor having your medical records on his wrist? What if he loses it? We haven’t discussed the HIPPA rules that such a gadget will breach confidentiality but yet we are thrilled to have such technology at our finger tips.
