Apple hired Ricky Bloomfield, MD, a physician at Durham, N.C.-based Duke University Health System, to join its healthcare team, according to MobiHealthNews.


Katie McMillan, one of Dr. Bloomfield's colleagues, made the initial announcement on Twitter.

Dr. Bloomfield currently serves as director of mobile strategy at Duke University Health System. He will leave his position to work for Apple, though Apple has not confirmed what his role will entail.

Apple revealed Apple Health and Apple HealthKit in 2014. Shortly thereafter, Duke was one of the first hospitals to integrate its Epic system with the Apple HealthKit platform.

Dr. Bloomfield demonstrated an interest in Apple's ResearchKit, as he played a role in developing Autism and Beyond, Duke's ResearchKit study.
