Apple announces Health Records feature coming to veterans

Health record screen from Health app on iPhone

Help for veterans is coming quickly after Apple teamed up with Aetna on a health monitoring app, and displays a more prominent technique on the tech large.

In its official blog, Apple explained that Health Records will allow veterans across the USA to see their medical information from participating institutions organised into one view all in the Health app on the iPhone.

Today Cupertino has announced it will be working with the US Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) to make health records available at the touch of a button.

Veterans can view a snapshot of their health profiles that includes known conditions, vaccinations, lab results, medications, procedures and more.

"We have great admiration for veterans, and we're proud to bring a solution like Health Records on iPhone to the veteran community", Apple CEO Tim Cook said in a statement. Those positive results led the UC Health system to expand Apple Health Records access to its 5 million patients.


"These proposed rules strive to bring the nation's healthcare system one step closer to a point where patients and clinicians have the access they need to all of a patient's health information, helping them in making better choices about care and treatment", said HHS Secretary Alex Azar.

"For veterans, we think that it's going to be very empowering", Lynch said.

After a participating veteran visits a VA health facility, updated health record information will be uploaded to the patient's Apple device within 24 hours. Neither the San Diego VA nor the main headquarters in Washington, D.C., were able to provide additional information Monday afternoon.

Apple's announcement follows plans that Microsoft shared last week to make patient information more accessible to all involved parties, by storing health records on the Azure cloud.

Apple has been slowly but surely revolutionizing healthcare with its products and services since the introduction of the HealthKit framework and Health app in 2014.
