THE PROM­ISE OF AP­PLE’S RE­SEARCHKIT

iPhone Life Magazine - - Life + Tech -

Mo­bile tech­nol­ogy is not only help­ing di­ag­nose dis­eases but also help­ing us to bet­ter un­der­stand them. In March, Ap­ple an­nounced Re­searchKit—an open-source soft­ware de­vel­op­ment tool that med­i­cal pro­fes­sion­als can use to cre­ate new re­search and di­ag­nos­tic apps for the iPhone.

Be­fore in­tro­duc­ing Re­searchKit, Ap­ple CEO Tim Cook said that re­searchers at hos­pi­tals and med­i­cal cen­ters kept telling Ap­ple that the iPhone could be a use­ful tool for their re­search. In re­sponse, Ap­ple de­vel­oped Re­searchKit and re­leased it as a free plat­form de­signed to as­sist in med­i­cal re­search.

“There is a bril­liant and mo­ti­vated re­search com­mu­nity out there, and we can't wait to see what they do with it,” Cook said.
