It was launched seven months ago and has already been used by researchers across the country to study diseases like Parkinson's and asthma.

The company hopes that the apps will allow more people to participate in clinical trials that will provide more data from a diverse background. The data provides a crucial component for studying how and why certain diseases occur.

Researchers can use ResearhKit to study participants from around the world, not just near where the study is based.

Researchers can incorporate the iPhone's camera, accelerometer, microphone, gyroscope, and GPS sensors into their studies.
