Paging Dr. iPhone

Posted by @DanHinmon, Jan 11, 2016

Interesting article about researchers collecting real-time data directly from patients.

One example: Boston Children’s Hospital built an app called C Tracker using ResearchKit, an open-source program for creating iOS health apps. The app allows the hospital to collect personal information—like medication use, diet, and overall condition—from hepatitis C patients via their smartphones.
