Apple CareKit apps arrive, giving more data to your doctor

Tech Industry
It's getting easier for doctors to track your health with iPhone apps. I'm Bridget Carey, this is your cnet update. [MUSIC] Apple is getting more involved in your healthcare. The company created a software platform for apps to share your medical information with the doctor. It's called CareKit. And four apps have just been updated to take advantage of this. There's an app called Start, it helps you track if your medication for depression is working. There's an app called One Drop Those with Diabetes tried glucose, food, and medications, and activity data. It also syncs data with bluetooth monitors. And there's another app that I've been using for several months already. It's called Glow Nurture, and it's for logging your habits during pregnancy. And to be honest, I never really cared to use this to log my weight and my blood pressure, but it would be helpful if my doctor could just. Plug in that info during my visits and I could supplement the data once in a while, usually the only benefit to pregnancy apps is they tell you how big your baby's getting every week, comparing the baby's size to fruits and vegetables. Apparently today, my baby is the size of a small spaghetti squash, but I don't know what that is. I have to translate this into gadget speak. So at 18 inches, my baby is about the length of a Samsung Galaxy View tablet, and at 5.3 pounds that comes out to about three Surface Pros. [SOUND] Okay, well back to CareKit. There's another one called Glow Baby And that can help track my infant's growth and feeding schedules eventually but its also for me. Unless I can find a pediatrician and a setup to monitor this data and that's going to be the biggest challenge for Apple. I mean some doctors can't even get switched properly to electronic records much less be ready to adapt to Care Kit. But if doctors don't upgrade maybe some fitness apps could use Care Kit. To send date to personal trainers. Meanwhile, for those that could care less about physical activity, there is some virtual reality news. Samsung announced that it is working on creating its own VR headset and this would be able to sense how you're moving in the virtual space. Right now, Samsung does have a Gear VR. They created that with the help of Oculus, and it's powered by a Smartphone inside the visor, But during a presentation, a Samsung executive said that in three years, you could have technology like a holodeck experience, where you can interact with objects. Well, at least someone's working on making my Star Trek dreams come true. That's all for tech news roundup. you can head to Cnet.com for the latest. From our studios in New York, I'm Bridget Carey.
