The technology to make healthcare more personal.

Apps on iPad, iPhone, and Apple Watch are capable of helping medical professionals deliver personalized care. Our powerful hardware is built to keep up with the demands of healthcare organizations to make work faster and more efficient. And intuitive apps provide easy access to critical health information, so healthcare teams have all the resources they need to make the best decisions for their patients.

Deliver better care
with powerful tools.

Apple products are designed to make healthcare more human. Our software is powerful and easy for both medical professionals and patients to use. We’ve built our devices to protect patient data and be accessible for everyone. And we’ve streamlined the way health data is collected and devices are deployed.

An intuitive, familiar interface.

Our products are built on a platform people are already familiar with. Apps on iPhone and iPad allow patients to learn more about their conditions or treatment, doctors to view lab results and radiology images, and nurses to send and receive secure communication or to help ensure patient safety when administering medications.

Powerful and versatile hardware.

Healthcare providers can use iPhone and iPad devices to do a variety of tasks anywhere in the hospital. The high-resolution Retina display and powerful graphics performance allow doctors to view a patient’s imaging studies on iPad. The built-in camera works with third-party apps to let nurses securely photograph a patient’s wound during treatment and store it in the patient’s record. And medical researchers can use the advanced sensors to track movement, take measurements, and record data for studies.

Safe and secure data.

Secure software requires a foundation of security built into hardware. Touch ID allows doctors to use their fingerprints as passwords to access patient charts instantly. Regular software updates protect iOS and iPadOS from emerging security concerns. And we build in safeguards to ensure that both third-party and in-house apps can access data only in ways that are authorized by the user. This gives patients ultimate control over what is shared with their care teams or other apps.

Accessible by design.

Our devices are designed to be used by everyone. Apple products come with powerful assistive features like Switch Control, which can help users operate their devices with minimal touch, and Live Listen, which lets users turn their iPhone or iPad into a remote microphone for their Made for iPhone hearing aids.

Streamlined health data.

The Health app makes it easier for people to see and understand their health metrics and records in one place. Patients can use HealthKit-enabled apps and third-party health accessories, like wireless blood pressure cuffs, to securely monitor and store their health data and share that information directly with their care teams.

Easy to deploy.

We’ve simplified the setup process so you can configure devices automatically and buy and distribute apps seamlessly. With Apple Business Manager, you can enable zero-touch configuration to remotely load account settings, apps, email, and access to the hospital directory on every iPad and iPhone. So there’s no need for the IT department to physically access each device to complete setup.

Improve the delivery of care with apps.

The App Store features over 40,000 apps that are changing the world of healthcare. Medical professionals can provide faster, more personalized care in the hospital with apps focusing on clinical care, nursing care, and the patient experience. Patients can manage their health outside the hospital with HealthKit-enabled apps. And ResearchKit-enabled apps make it easier for medical researchers to gather robust and meaningful data from larger, more varied populations.
