Health care is a $3T+ industry that tech giants have not cracked yet. Rumors around Apple’s involvement in health care have been swirling for a couple of years. Apple has several advantages in the space including non-health care revenue ($52.9B revenue in Q2 2017), leverage (85.8M US iPhone users), and many more which we’ll talk about.
This briefing is a deep dive into everything we know about Apple’s ambitions in the space using patents, acquisitions, interviews, job data, and more. We’ll talk about what Apple has done so far, where they might be going in the future, and who will be affected.
