The opportunity to send data to physicians, nurses and members of the family via CareKit apps empowers people to be proactive in keeping their health.

- Care Card, which assists in monitoring of the execution of the plan of treatment and medical advice, for example, taking the medicines or physical therapy classes. Performance of the needed actions can be monitored automatically and recorded by transducers Apple Watch or iPhone.

- Insight Dashboard, which shows the connection between the existence of symptoms and following the recommendations in compliance with the Care Card, and displays visually the efficiency of the therapy.
