Apple has announced a solution to bring health records to the iPhone, aiming to make things easier for users to access their medical information.
Right now, accessing your health data can be a real hassle and it may not always be easy to find a lab test or some other such record. With this in mind, Apple wants to make medical records easily accessible on the go, on iPhones.
Apple Bringing Medical Records To iPhones
Patients would previously have their medical records in multiple locations, which often required them to piece all information together, from each health care provider, manually. Together with the healthcare community, Apple created Health Records based on Fast Healthcare Interoperability Resources, or FHIR for short, which is a standard designed for the transfer of digital records.
