With the proliferation of devices like Fitbit, a growing amount of health data is being collected about consumers.

This is increasingly being done through the use of APIs, currently being offered consumer device makers such as Fitbit, Withings and Jawbone, as well as by electronic health records like drchrono, Allscripts and Practice Fusion.

These platforms include Aetna Carepass, Kaiser Permanente’s Interchange and Runkeeper’s Health Graph.
