Dr. Oz pushes health tech at Apple eventCNET talks to Dr. Oz ahead of Apple's special event in Cupertino, Calif., and discusses the potential for Apple's software in the health sector.
[MUSIC] Well, Apple pushing for healthcare is a very important one. Right now, health information, especially mobile devices, is very balkanized. It's very fragmented. So, for people like me who are very excited about creating apps that a large audience can use need to have platforms to help onboard. Folks. But also give them confidence that their data's being treated correctly, and most important connect the different apps together so we can make a seemless experience. So, I'm optimistic that with, this new platform, we're gonna have a very different experience for people who are looking for the best ways to stay healthy. The new devices that are gonna be announced today will allow folks to gather information about themselves without even trying. Which means I can tell you things about you, you didn't even know. With this smart phone I can assess not just how many step you're walking, but your body temperature. Maybe insights about how you're sleeping at night. Maybe your blood sugar. Maybe ideas about whether you're really hungry, or are you just tired. Is that why your cranky? But also more important observations, about literally, are you becoming premenopausal, are your hormones messed up? Things that a lot of times, people don't realize can happen at very different ages to different people. The best part of this whole platform, the reason I'm so excited about being here is because instead of basing advice to you on last year's, or last decade's information, I'm gonna tell you based on what's happening right now to ten million people just like you, so I can make it intelligent enough to educate you going forward. This is ahead of where doctors historically have been.
