Health systems like Cedars-Sinai Health System in Los Angeles, Parkview Medical in Colorado and Ochsner Medical Center in New Orleans are integrating iPads and Apple Watches into their system, according to Fast Company. The devices give patients new insight into their care by allowing them to easily access and transport their medical records and provide doctors with streamlined alerts.

This, even though others have shied away because of the onerous and unpredictable regulation.

Apple has publicly acknowledged its interest in the lucrative healthcare market that some have shied away from given the regulatory challenges. Apple’s decision to release CareKit, ResearchKit and HealthKit, all of which focus on health data integration, supports its ongoing interest in healthcare.

With its partnership with IBM we expect to see more activity for Apple devices in the clinical setting.
