During today’s Apple Event, the company expanded its HealthKit and ResearchKit initiatives with a new service dubbed CareKit. The new system will allow users to share health information with care providers and loved ones in order to better facilitate doctor-patient communication. Like ResearchKit, CareKit will be a framework rather than a specific app, allowing third-party developers to tie into the data and services provided by the CareKit APIs. CareKit is scheduled to become available to developers in April.
