On June 2, Apple announced the pending release of the Health app and corresponding SDK,
HealthKit at its Worldwide Developer Conference (WWDC). Apple also announced that it is working
with both the Mayo Clinic and Epic to refine their health offering for both clinician workflow and
patient/consumer engagement. The implications of this announcement could be significant, particularly
for patient generated health data (PGHD), which is a proposed requirement for MU Stage 3.
