Once ready, it will let American veterans receiving care through the Veterans Health Administration view their aggregated health records on their iPhone.
The tech giant would create a tool that allows vets to download health records directly to their iPhones and link them to other health apps.
The partnership will focus on analyzing patterns from around 700,000 historical, de-personalized health records to develop machine learning algorithms.
The Learning Corp's app provides veterans suffering from brain injury with access to critical rehabilitation anytime, anywhere.
The 'anywhere to anywhere' idea is to allow VA providers to provide telehealth services from anywhere in the country to veterans anywhere in the country.
The collaboration has started with a hands-free virtual assistant that uses Nuance's AI technology together with Epic's EHR system.
The application called Annie will be tested at four VA sites, including Washington, D.C.; Portland, Maine; Cleveland; and Minneapolis.
Called Patient Viewer, the application allows providers to access information contained in the VA's Vista electronic health record platform.
Veterans will no longer be required to travel to a VA facility, and can receive telemedicine treatment from anywhere, including their home or a community center.
The smartwatches will be used in a pilot study focused on tracking sleep patterns in veterans suffering from PTSD-related nightmares.
