Apple has recently added a medical records section to its existing health app. This enables the user to store all of their medical information in one place that is always accessible at their fingertips. The new feature also enables participating providers to update the patient with new information. Instead of having multiple apps, portals or paper copies to keep track of, all of a patient’s information from multiple doctors can be accessed in one place. Making this a version of the Electronic Health record not created and geared towards physicians and hospitals but instead to the consumer. For more information see: https://news.nnlm.gov/bhic/9ayk
