Apple is pushing its health-related efforts even further, with a work posting for a Clinical Producer’ hopefully assisting Apple in fine-tuning medical-related products and services.
The work posting, which was first noticed by MyHealthyApple on the Jobs at Apple board on Friday, is for a “Clinical Producer – Health” to be located in Cupertino.
According to the report, “The individual will direct overall production of health goods in coordination with cross-functional teams”. They will also “identify core areas of focus with respect for Apple’s products, technologies, and potential for consumer influence” in collaboration with clinicians.
The applicant would be responsible for “shepherding end-to-end growth for Apple’s health products from idea to delivery,” which would include collaborating with design, technical, and regulatory teams to identify specifications, the customer interface, and product specifications.
Although the first sections of the definition could refer to a number of consumer Apple goods, such as the Apple Watch, the later sections indicate that it is a position that deals with clients in the healthcare sector rather than customers.
Collaboration with clinicians to “evaluate clinical criteria, usefulness, and use cases,” the need to “distill clinical experience into requirements and values to advise product creation,” and “help clinicians with crafting clinical validity trials” are only a few of the references.
Although the Apple Watch and other fitness-related devices are well-known as part of Apple’s health-inspired work, the brand is now collaborating with healthcare professionals on medical initiatives. Apple’s Health Records app is one example, but the company is also expected to transform the healthcare sector in other ways, such as AI and analytics.
Apple’s recruiting spree in the medical sector continues with this work posting. A career posting for a “Senior Engineer Project Manager for Wellness Technologies” in February suggested that Apple was working on entirely new health devices.
Apple advertised for a cardiologist to join the health technology team in April, most likely to assist the firm in overcoming regulatory barriers involved with getting consumer medical products to market.
