Apple today announced CareKit, a tool that will work with mobile apps to help people track and manage various conditions and diseases. The app can be used to collect data points for a range of afflictions and then shared with family members or medical professionals. The first disease being targeted with CareKit is Parkinson's. The company has forged several partnerships with research centers and medical facilities to help spur engagement. Apple will release CareKit to app developers later this year.

AFIB app?

I hoped that by now they would have an app to monitor heart rhythm for AFIB and record the instances of its occurence. Since AFIB is mostly asymptomatic, one could not tell when and how often it occurs. Such an app would help a lot of people who don't want to wear a cumbersome monitoring strap around their torso.
