Boston Children's Hospital has launched a ResearchKit-powered research project on body temperatures. Using Apple's newly launched ResearchKit, the hospital has released an app on the App Store called Feverprints [via AppleInsider] that seeks to gather temperature data on a wide and diverse population of children and adults. The study is hoping to identify fever patterns (or "feverprints") that can then be used to "improve our ability to determine the cause of fevers." ResearchKit is an API Apple released to enable such studies, and to allow them to collect data while protecting privacy. The app is free, requires you to enter temperature data, and provides some reporting features for the user, in addition to contributions to the study.
