Digital HealthSamsung is committed to helping create and accelerate a wider digital health movement. To support this effort, the company announced:
Samsung Digital Health (SDH) Platform and SDK: SDH SDK provides developers a feature to track information on personal health, such as activity, workout, food consumption and more. In addition, it syncs the information with Samsung Cloud server and Samsung Account. It allows services and apps to be connected to the SDH Platform, on which users can enjoy quality healthcare services from Samsung’s partners in the healthcare industry.
Samsung is expanding its domain from personal wellness to preventive healthcare service by building relationships in the medical, insurance and healthcare service provider industries.
Samsung continues to expand its vision for the Smart Home, through its own initiatives with Samsung Smart Home and through SmartThings. The Samsung Smart Home platform is designed to deliver smart home experiences that enable new kinds of conveniences for consumers. Development tools, such as the beta release of the Smart Home SDK, allow customers who have appliances developed by the SDK to control them by using a Samsung Smart TV or smartphone.
The Gear S SDK enables developers to create exciting, unique applications that harness network and location data by capitalizing on the cellular functions, richer notifications and advanced UI of the device.
