GMA shoot - 560

Apple’s new ResearchKit, and Stanford Medicine’s MyHeart Counts iPhone app, were highlighted on ABC's Nightline on Friday. Michael McConnell, MD, professor of cardiovascular medicine and principal investigator for the MyHeart Counts study, was interviewed, telling business correspondent Rebecca Jarvis around the 4-minute mark that the app will "definitely" change the way his job works. "It gives us a whole new way to do research," he explained. "Traditionally reaching many people to participate in research studies is quite challenging. The ability to reach people through their phone is one major advance."
