Will my health data be locked to a specific os?
Great potential, but somewhat leery of my healthcare provider using my data in a walled garden. I understand the initial need to keep this in the ios sphere until the bugs are worked out. However, since most of the world uses android and google, I'll encourage my doctor to not be locked into this partnership. My data is my data and interaction with it should not depend on what type of phone I own.
