Evernote and iHealth Partner

Evernote is a popular application which allows users to jot down notes and keep information on multiple devices. Because the application is free and available on just about any platform, you could see why it’s so popular. But the real reason Evernote is so useful and popular is because there are so many different things users can do with it. iHealth seems to think that Evernote can be useful to the healthcare sector when it comes letting doctors and patients receive better data in real- time.

iHealth has already been recognized as a company that has taken healthcare to the mobile platform. They have offered up applications for the iPhone, the iPod Touch and the iPad. The partnership with Evernote means that users will be able to track and share their iHealth results over Evernote. In addition, it  will allow users and doctors to share health information using iHealth’s Practice Fusion network.

"iHealth's products make it simple to track personal health information, including weight, blood pressure, blood glucose and more with easy-to-use devices that provide valuable information," said Adam Lin, general manager of iHealth Labs.

"But that information is even more useful when paired with popular services such as Practice Fusion's Electronic Medical Record, or Evernote's application which make it easy to remember almost everything."

The partnership will allow Evernote users to see their iHealth readings on their Evernote account as a “results card.” The card will show, at a glance, readings such as BMI and weight data, as well as systolic and diastolic and blood pressure readings. Being able to see these bits of information in their Evernote account will keep people well aware of their health readings in a way that will prove beneficial to patients and doctors.
