  1. Re: Apple’s hiring of Sumbul Desai. CNBC is reporting today regarding Apple’s plans for healthcare. (http://www.cnbc.com/2017/06/14/apple-iphone-medical-record-integration-plans.html).

    It is clear that Apple fancies itself as become the dominant consumer facing gateway to health information and data. They likely have looked at patient facing apps from major EHR vendors and have realized (like the rest of us using those apps) that they are highly utilitarian at this point with limited ability to pull data from multiple EHRs, lack any substantial functionality to help with patient engagement and in general have mediocre user interfaces.

    Whether they will be successful in this effort or, like Google/Microsoft, end up being a roadkill of healthcare world is something only time will tell.
