“Our goal is to help consumers live a better day. We’ve worked closely with the health community to create an experience everyone has wanted for years — to view medical records easily and securely right on your iPhone,” said Jeff Williams, Apple’s COO. “By empowering customers to see their overall health, we hope to help consumers better understand their health and help them lead healthier lives.”
Stephanie Reel, Chief Information Officer at Johns Hopkins Medicine, said improving communication between patients and healthcare professionals can make accessing medical records a simple daily task for patients.
“Streamlining information sharing between patients and their caregivers can go a long way towards making the patient experience a positive one,” Reel said in a news release.

At the time of Apple’s beta launch in late January 2018, more than 10 hospitals and clinics were participating to make this latest feature available to their patients.
Apple expects more medical facilities to connect to Health Records in the upcoming months.
