CNBC has learned that a secretive team within Apple's growing health unit has been in talks with developers, hospitals and other industry groups about bringing clinical data, such as detailed lab results and allergy lists, to the iPhone, according to a half-dozen people familiar with the team. And from there, users could choose to share it with third parties, like hospitals and health developers.
Time will tell, but this seems to have the pieces for a good opportunity. Apple has the foundation for such a thing with its HealthKit and strong security. Medical data is also fragmented between health systems and consumer services/vendors.
