Ws 7

  1. 1. Apple’s Announcements & HEALTHCARE
  2. 2. Voice Assistance The most landmark of the Apple announcements, Siri voice assistance, holds the promise of a new way to interact with mobile devices and apps. This development isn’t just important for busy doctors trying to keep sterile hands, it’s also a significant advancement in assistive technology and a harbinger of things to come.
  3. 3. Voice control and dictation isn’t new on iPhone. iOS already has a primitive system built in, and many medical apps such as Touch Medix Lightning Charts integrate their own dictation software. But Apple’s new voice assistance, Siri, goes far beyond these. With Siri, doctors can converse with their phones to book appointments, reminders and more. Plus, the apps ties to WolframAlpha, making it particularly useful for doctors.
  4. 4. Paired with iOS 5’s new assistive features, such as custom gestures, SMS tones and custom vibration, iPhone 4GS could become the choice device for handicapped users.
  5. 5. Although there isn’t any current indication that it will happen, it’s possible that one day all apps could include voice commands and artificial intelligence, similar to what’s currently being integrated with Microsoft Kinect.
  6. 6. Dual Core A5 Chip A5 Chip & Dual Core Apple may have used gaming to showcase their phone’s new processing power during the keynote, but this isn’t the only arena where extra processing power is important. This development brings the same processing power to iPhone that has made iPad 2 a powerhouse in healthcare and means that MRIs and other images can be viewed more clearly.
  7. 7. 7 x Faster Graphics 2 x As Fast As iPhone 4 As the regulatory bodies like the FDA begin to look more closely at diagnostic apps, and developers are creating more sophisticated medical image viewers, this boost in processing power helps establish iPhone, and not just iPad, as a true medical tool.
  8. 8. Health Tracking Goes Mainstream Nike+ made run tracking easy with its specialized pedometer and mobile integration, but mobile health tracking is about to go even more mainstream as the feature becomes integrated into iPod Nano. This landmark opens the doors to encourage more mobile health tracking, allowing doctors to better understand our daily activity.
  9. 9. iPod Nano represents a fun, easy and cheap way for users to track their activity. With its low cost and durability, it’s possible users may start viewing Nano as a fitness tool rather than a music player. Mobile devices hold the potential to passively record people’s activity and use positive feedback loops to reinforce healthy habit. The integration of these features is a step in the direction of our mobile device being seen as a healthcare tool.
  10. 10. Lack of NFC It’s not just about what iPhone 4S has, it’s about what it DOESN’T have, and NFC is one glaring omission. NFC has the power to allow doctors to securely and easily get information from patients and medical devices. Google launched NFC in Android earlier this year, but Apple’s failure to follow spells difficulty for the technology.
  11. 11. Several aspects of NFC, including its security and affordability, make it an ideal way to exchange health data between doctors and patients, patients and medical devices, and more. Apple holds patents that include NFC, but their failure to include it can either been seen as a blow to the technology, or a boon for Android. In addition to having NFC, Android also does not require certification of accessories like Apple does.
  12. 12. Multiple Carriers & Cheap Devices Lots of companies have entered the smartphone markets with a variety of high- and low-end products on a range of carriers. This variety has challenged iPhone. The introduction of a free 3GS and an additional carrier means that a doctor can use a high-power device while his patient can opt for the basics.
  13. 13. Apple is successful in the smartphone space, but globally the company represents only 5% of the mobile phone market. There is a large number of people who will be purchasing smartphones in the next few years and a free 3GS ups the chance those phones will be iPhones. FREE The introduction of another carrier means that there’s no pain for users in switching phones, also upping iPhone adoption
  14. 14. iPhone has been proven to be one of the best devices for seniors, and with a plethora of diabetes, medication and other healthcare apps, it holds great potential. Until now, iPhone has been prohibitively expensive for fixed incomes, but the discounted 3GS opens new options. Perhaps one day it will be even covered by medicare.
