Re: HealthKit v. HealthVault
You're right, part of the trick of making this work would be to make sure there is value to the individual in whatever analysis gets done on their data. If they can tell you you're going to have a heart attack before it happens, then that's valuable. If the data gets siphoned off for the benefit of Merck or someone, not so much (although some people would agree to that in return for the occasional Starbucks gift card).

Re: HealthKit v. HealthVault
> The most promising space for Apple and other systems software vendors to innovate, Sheaf said, is in the analytics for data gathered from mobile gadgets.

Why would I, as a healthcare consumer, want anyone to have access to my health data?

HealthKit v. HealthVault
It strikes me that these mobile health integration platforms share the same broad goals as personal health records platforms like Microsoft HealthVault -- where HealthVault is the most widely used of the bunch but the category as a whole has never thrived. The question is whether consumers will be more interested in keeping a consolidated health record linked to their mobile device. The answer might be yes if more of the data gathering can be automated, rather than something they're expected to type into a web form.
