As part of iOS 8 Apple also introduced HealthKit, a hub and service that can be used to monitor health and interact with healthcare providers. HealthKit works with third-party apps, such as those from the Mayo Clinic, to collect and sync data from iOS devices to the owners' doctor's office. Apple envisions HealthKit as a central repository for all the health apps running on a device. Developers will be able to hook into the service to enrich peoples' ability to track and manage their health.

Apple's going the Samsung way

Now with HealthKit. Can't wait for Apple fanboys bashing comments.
I was about to comment this, so +1 sir
Because it's apple they will say how innovative apple is being.. Or apple will sue samsung again.
collect data and sync the information to their doctor for them to review with you? That's a beneficial feature that the S5 is missing.
HealthKit is to S-Health as iTunes is to Samsung Music Hub.
