Apple's Health Records App Will Let Vets Access All VA Records 02/13/2019

Health record screen from Health app on iPhone

The VA laid the groundwork for the Apple app when it launched its first health application programming interface late past year, which it said would allow veterans "to interact with their own personal health data within innovative mobile and web-based apps".

Apple is increasing its Health Records characteristic in iOS to cowl one of many bigger teams within the USA: particularly, veterans. That includes information about allergies, conditions, immunizations, lab results, medications, procedures, and vitals.

All the data is encrypted and protected with the user's iPhone passcode, Touch ID or Face ID.

"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. Those positive results led the UC Health system to expand Apple Health Records access to its 5 million patients. "It's truly an honor to contribute to the improved healthcare of America's heroes".

"We're excited to bring this feature to veterans across the United States", said Kevin Lynch, Apple's vice president of Technology.

Welcoming VA providers into the fold is a huge addition.

The information will be gleaned from across 1,243 facilities, serving 9 million veterans.

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.

"When patients have better access to their health information, they have more productive conversations with their physicians", Apple COO Jeff Williams said in a statement.

Apple has announced that its Health Records feature on the iPhone will soon be available to military veterans.

The Wall Street Journal reported in November that Apple had been working with the Veterans Administration on the records service since 2017.
