Apple now lets you access medical records from 39 health systems in Health app

iOS 11.3 includes a new feature: Health Records. If you’re a patient within certain health systems — like Duke, NYU Langone, Stanford and Yale — you can view your medical records on your iPhone.

The medical information — such as allergies, medical conditions, vaccinations, lab tests, medical procedures, and vitals — will be available to iPhone users who are patients at 39 health systems that are working with Apple, including Stanford Medicine and Johns Hopkins.

Providing patients with a way to easily see their medical records gives them somewhat better control over their health information, which can stay stuck in the silos of individual health systems.
