This is a huge deal for Apple, as the first record-sharing platform of its kind available to VA patients. It should be noted that the VA is the largest medical system in the U.S., serving more than 9 million patients across 1,243 facilities. Apple has already enlisted hundreds of hospitals, clinics, and other health institutions to support the Health Records feature of the Health app, which allows patients to see their aggregated medical information from participating institutions (now including the VA), organized into one view in the Health app. Health records data includes allergies, conditions, immunizations, lab results, medications, procedures and vitals, and is displayed along with other information in the Health app like Apple Watch data.

"One of the most exciting parts of my job right now is to see the technology that's usually equated with California and the West Coast, whether it's AI, machine learning [or] robotics, ... more and more being integrated into health care," Gorsky, the chairman and CEO, told CNBC's Jim Cramer in a "Mad Money" interview. The two giants are using the Watch in a cardiovascular health study to see how it impacts early detection of atrial fibrillation, or heart flutters, which can lead to stroke and other debilitating conditions. Apple already introduced an electrocardiogram feature for the Watch in December, marking the first release of a mass-market product with an ECG. But there has been some debate around its accuracy, which this tie-up could help improve. Gorsky also briefly addressed the scandal that shaved $40 billion off Johnson & Johnson's market cap in December: a Reuters report that accused the company of knowing for decades that there were traces of asbestos in its baby powder product.
Apple(NASDAQ: AAPL) may finally be ready to unveil its news and video-streaming subscription services, according to reports this past week about a planned March 25 event. While both projects have long been rumored, Apple has released no real details about them. The tech giant has been under increased pressure to come up with additional revenue streams to counterbalance a dip in iPhone sales and a maturing smartphone market. For the past quarter, the company's iPhone revenue was down 15%, year over year. Having 1.4 billion active iPhone devices worldwide that it can push new services on, such as news and video subscriptions, makes this a potentially fruitful announcement. That's because, as the streaming space expands to include companies like Disney(NYSE: DIS), Apple, HBO, Amazon(NASDAQ: AMZN), and others, users are having to subscribe to two or more services and navigating separate apps for each one.
Tech giant Apple Inc. plans to buy Pullstring, a voice application company based in San Francisco, for an undisclosed sum, Axios reported Friday, citing multiple sources. Pullstring was founded in 2011 by former Pixar executives for enhanced computer-based conversations and is backed by Greylock Partners, Charles River Ventures, Khosla Ventures, True Ventures, and First Round Capital among others, according to its website. Axios said the deal will help Siri become more competitive against Amazon.com Inc.'s Alexa given that the iPhone maker has trailed both Google and Amazon in adoption and development of voice technology. Shares of Apple were unchanged in the late trade after falling 0.2% to close at $170.42 in the regular session.
In January, CNBC's Jim Cramer suggested that such a move would make sense for Apple, as it looks to get deeper into health care. Faulkner, who's the third richest woman in the country, runs her company with a strict mantra to never do deals, and never go public. Most CEOs would not balk at the idea of Apple buying their company.
