The Next Big Health App Needs To Do More Than Just Track Our Numbers

Mat Honan But there isnt a great holistic way to first track all this stuff and then extract meaning from it. Which makes it very tempting to look at how many steps you took yesterday and conclude, Im healthy. Yet change may be coming in the form of a new app called Healthbook. This week we got a deep look at the rumored new health and fitness tracking application for Apples next iPhone, called Healthbook. According to the report in 9to5mac, Healthbook not only will track things like how much exercise and sleep youre getting, but also your blood pressure, your blood sugar levels, and much more. It appears extremely comprehensive.

Pelosi says health law a winner for Dems

"We just couldn't be prouder" of the legislation, Pelosi told a news conference where she said the law already has resulted in "better coverage, more affordable, better quality" insurance for nearly 12 million people. The California Democrat's appearance was timed for the fourth anniversary of the bill's signing by President Barack Obama on March 23, 2010, an occurrence that few other congressional Democrats seem inclined to herald at a time when party strategists seek a strategy to blunt criticism from Republicans and their allies. The first test of their strategy ended inauspiciously for Democrats in Florida recently, where Republicans won a special election for a House seat after a costly campaign in which the health care law played a heavy role in television advertising. Pelosi has said the defeat was due more to the make-up of a district long in Republican hands. Other Democrats speaking privately concede the health care law played a role. Opinion surveys indicate the public generally wants to improve the law rather than repeal it, and party strategists are urging lawmakers to take credit for its benefits at the same time they emphasize their desire to change portions of it. Some Republicans seemed delighted that Pelosi had chosen to trumpet an issue the GOP seeks to put front and center in the campaign.
