The Apple HealthKit is a pilot hospital service that is being implemented to help monitor chronic conditions like diabetes and hypertension. Moving into the industry faster than Google and Samsung's own systems, Google Fit and S Health, the Apple HealthKit is much more comprehensive. Unlike the other two, it focuses on much more than nutrition and fitness.

By introducing a wearable tech system in hospitals, the Apple HealthKit will ensure that patients are given the best care possible. It will provide a level of assistance to doctors and nurses that go beyond the current framework. Access not only to the wearer's physical readings, but also to their records in general, will save time and effort all around.
