Apple Incorporated and Mayo Clinic have cooperated avidly as regards the iPhone 6. It has worked so far and might do so in the future.

Apple is about to unveil its iPhone 6 and might also its iWatch in two more hours. And it is going to display its products in the company of the Mayo Clinic. Now the Mayo Clinic is a pretty huge name in medical establishments and healthcare units.

In fact, it’s been two years since the two have been collaborating with each other on a daily basis. The medico wizards at Mayo Clinic not only helped in the design of the Health App but also left behind their signature on the HealthKit API.

“We believe Apple’s HealthKit will revolutionize how the health industry interacts with people,” according to Mayo Clinic CEO Dr. John Noseworthy. Mayo Clinic was “proud to be at the forefront of this innovative technology,” Noseworthy added.

At the new Apple convention which took place today, Mayo Clinic officials and doctors were present and they explained the healing art of improved medical science to the newbies present. The revolutionary implications for the future with these technological applications and bio-monitoring products are simply mindboggling.

One of the medical doctors especially endorsed Apple’s products. “If you’re motivated enough to wear one of those, you’re more likely to respond to what the devices tell you,” said Wayne Kaniewski, a Minneapolis physician and owner of a health records consulting firm.

“Doctors are spending an awful lot more time being data-entry people rather than caring for patients,” Kaniewski said. “We’ve gotten obsessed with data collection.”

The Mayo Clinic is pretty proud to be at the forefront of this movement in innovation and creativity. By changing the very game plan of health care, Apple has earned a laurel for itself. And this is not just hearsay or empty twaddle.

“That was an evolution and now it’s common and people don’t give it a second thought,” says John Wald, medical director of marketing at Mayo. “We’re at the start of that evolution in health care.”

“Consumers are really going to have to look at their budget and see that the lowest cost for a health care plan may not be the wisest investment,” he said.

“They may have a higher out-of-pocket expense. They may go from one provider to the next and the next without getting an answer for their clinical question. They’ll start to figure out where the best value is and that may not be, as we know in other areas of consumerism, the cheapest product.”

It is the real deal. Both Apple and Mayo Clinic are in this together and they won’t back away from giving it their all. The youthful ideas of the technologists at Apple and the discoveries and inventions of the explorers of the human body at Mayo Clinic are the ideal combination that will spell better days ahead.

The fact that the Mayo Clinic offers a stamp of approval to Apple is of significance. As the saying goes “two heads are better than one.” Meanwhile, Apple too has to enter other fields besides the tried and tested stomping ground which is science and technology.

And so such endeavors as health, sports and medical monitoring beckon Steve Jobs’ brainchild to make that leap into the dark. And it is going to be a leap of faith alright.
