With Steve Jobs at the helm, Apple developed the iPhone and iPad, creating a way for doctors to monitor patients remotely, e-prescribe medication and hold telehealth sessions. Just as Apple co-founder Steve Jobs played a huge role in personal computing, music, telecommunications and consumer electronics, his inventions have left a mark in health care as well.

Jobs passed away on Oct. 5 at the age of 56 after a long battle with pancreatic cancer.
