Apple helped Stanford Medicine build an app to connect first responders to test sites for COVID-19 if they start to show symptoms.
Apple has a new health website dedicated to ResearchKit and CareKit. It’s not a sub domain of Apple.com, but a separate website.
In addition to ResearchKit and CareKit, Apple is said to be building a new framework for research studies called SensorKit.
A limited Apple Watch grant program is launching this fall for ResearchKit and CareKit researchers. It’s part of what Apple calls an “Investigator Support Pilot.”
Apple said the new initiative, which is currently still in development, will have a simple submission process through the redesigned ResearchKit and CareKit website. While details on the new program were light during Apple’s presentation, the company said it would prioritize “studies that advance science and help people to lead healthier lives by uniquely leveraging our ecosystem,” and that more info would be available on the new website soon.
