Called HealthKit, the programme makes health data easily available to Apple users through the new health app installed on iPhone 6.

HealthKit provides a single place that applications can contribute to a composite profile of your activity and health, Forbes magazine reported.

"Developers have created a vast array of healthcare devices and accompanying applications but you cannot get a single comprehensive picture of your health situation. But now you can, with HealthKit," announced Craig Federighi, senior vice president at Apple.

This software programme finally lets Apple enter the a multi-trillion-dollar health industry. Given Apple's huge user base and market power, HealthKit could indeed be transformative for the healthcare industry, the report added.
