Your members may be wondering about the new Apple Research app and the first three research studies. They may know that Apple protects their privacy, but may not know that the Apple Research app meets all HIPA requirements or that Apple will have no way of identifying any data provided. They may know that the Apple Research app is designed to change the cost, time, and complexity of doing large-scale health studies, but may not know what sorts of things are being studied.

For example the Apple Heart and Movement Study is partnering with Brigham and Women’s Hospital to explore the links between physical activity and heart health, or that the Apple Hearing Study, in partnership with the University of Michigan will study how hearing could be impacted by exposure to sound at certain levels, and how this might affect stress levels and cardiovascular health.

Of course, that’s just the start. The Apple Research app could make for an interesting and rewarding meeting topic.
