Apple to partner with hospitals to gather user’s medical records in the new Health app

Apple recently announced the addition of Health Records in its Health app as part of its iOS11.3.

This  new addition to the Health app aims to accommodate all your health records in one place only a click away. Apple released the first beta version of iOS 11.3 today. However the new version of iOS is going to remain in beta testing for a couple of months. it should be available as a free download to all iPhone users pretty soon.

In order to achieve this humongous task, Apple is busy looking for clinics and hospitals to be its partners in this endeavor.
with the help of this new feature, users will be  able to add any file to this menu as long as it’s a CDA file (Clinical Document Architecture). Although this information might be available in hospital records  but Apple wants to automate this process. This feature will be quite handy for users who get a lot of medical test results and have to monitor their condition on a regular basis.

Although it might prove difficult for Apple to convince every hospital or clinic, many have actually agreed and even started Beta testing including Johns Hopkins Medicine, Cedars-Sinai and Penn Medicine.
