4 more hospitals join Apple's health records project

Four new hospitals have signed on to Apple's health records project since late September.

Early this year, the iPhone maker released plans to integrate patient health records into its Health app as part of the iOS 11.3 beta rollout. In January the program launched at 12 hospitals, including leading providers like Danville, Pa.-based Geisinger and Baltimore-based Johns Hopkins Medicine.

Since its launch, roughly 100 hospitals, health systems and clinics have signed on to the project, according to Apple's tally as of Oct. 10.

Here are the four most recent hospitals to join Apple's health records project, according to an update tweeted by Ricky Bloomfield, MD, clinical and health informatics lead at Apple:

  • Fort Healthcare (Fort Atkinson, Wis.)
  • Grace Cottage Hospital (Townshend, Vt.)
  • Kaiser Permanente (Oakland, Calif.)
  • Overlake Hospital Medical Center (Bellevue, Wash.)
