People around the world watched as Apple revealed a series of new developments during its Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) June 2-6 in San Francisco. Those announcements included plans for a new Health app coming with iOS 8, which will gather information from various health apps and fitness devices to provide an overview in one place.

The Health app uses specific information from other apps such as Nike+ to provide a more comprehensive way to manage health and fitness data and goals, according to a statement from Apple. From sleep to nutrition, users can create a custom profile and improve overall health or athletic performance.

While iOS 8 beta software currently is available for iOS Developer Program members, it will be available this fall as a free software update for Apple devices.

Could health-related apps ultimately change doctor/patient relationships, providing the ability to interact through real-time data sharing?
