The Mayo Clinic has launched support for the Apple Health Records function, allowing patients to add their medical records to the app on iPhones.
Health Records is a feature by Apple that allows patients to view and compile all of their health data in one place, with more than 700 institutions and 12,000 care locations supporting the app in the US, Canada, and UK.
Now, Mayo Clinic patients with a Patient Services Account can access their medical data through the Apple Health app.
According to MacRumors
“There are more ways than ever for patients to be actively engaged in their health care, and smartphone apps can be helpful for accessing records and tracking daily fitness and diet,” said Steve Ommen, MD, Medical Director of Experience Products for Mayo Clinic’s Center for Digital Health.
“We want patients who are interested in these apps to be able to use them securely and enhance their health care at Mayo Clinic,” he explained.
