Apple has hopes of contributing to the health care industry

Apple CEO Tim Cook has jumped on board, along with other huge companies, to start contributing towards bettering the health care industry.

Apple’s phones now have software for people and health developers to access medical information.  Apple also has products, including the iPad, that many medical professionals use in their offices.

Apple is already in the process of collaborating with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.  They are creating a pilot program to help the agency figure out how to regulate lower-risk digital health products. It has locked down a partnership with health insurer Aetna to get discounted Apple Watches into the hands of its members.

Cook also mentioned the company's efforts to bring medical records to the iPhone. This product is still in beta, and only about a dozen hospitals are signed up, although the company has big ambitious to open this up more broadly to the entire U.S. health-care ecosystem.

"The more and more time we spend on this," explained Cook, "the more excited I am that Apple can make a significant contribution here.
