The job listing hints that the person who will be hired for the role would be pivotal in dealing with clients in the healthcare industry itself.
Apple's Previous Job Listings
Apple had looked for other healthcare workers to help the company in their pursuit towards the healthcare industry, including an experienced cardiologist who has experience with health products and technology.
The job listing, which was spotted and reported by MyHealthyApple on Apr. 5, is looking for a cardiologist who can define clinical feature definitions and specifications and can conceptualize innovative product features to impact heart health.
"This is an outstanding opportunity for a clinician to demonstrate their medical expertise and passion to assist in building health-focused technologies," Apple's job listing reads.
In February 2021, Apple had sought a Senior Engineer Project Manager for Health Technologies, who will be tasked to "lead the design and development of Apple-branded Health Hardware products."
Apple's Role in the Health Care Industry
Apple has become one of the major tech companies that played an important role in the consumer health industry.
According to Apple Insider's report on Apr. 25, fitness-related items the tech giant had offered are known as part of Apple's health-inspired work.
The initiative includes the centralized Apple's Health Records feature in iPhone released in U.K. and Canada, giving consumers direct access to all their health data in one place.
The tech giant had also released an Apple Watch with WAtchOS 7 that could effectively monitor patients suffering from cardiovascular diseases.
The Apple Watch was designed with the late Steve Jobs in mind after he died from pancreatic cancer in 2011.
Apple is also reportedly planning to help the healthcare industry by tapping on AI and analytics to track user data for further analysis.
