Christiana Care launches Apple's iPhone health records feature  

Listen

Patients at Wilmington, Del.-based Christiana Care Health System can now access their medical information through the iPhone's Health Records app.

Christiana Care Health System's partnership with Apple aims to make the health system's patient data more accessible. Health Records on iPhone allows patients to organize medical data into one system, covering immunizations, lab results and medications, among other records.

"In our digital world, we are meeting our patients' expectations that their health records should be available to them as readily as their newsfeeds, videos and social media," Randy Gaboriault, Christiana Care CIO and senior vice president for innovation and strategic development, said in a news release. "Health Records on iPhone puts the ownership of health records where it belongs — with the patient."

The 1,277-bed health system also ascribes to OpenNotes, which gives patients the ability to read physician notes from their visits as part of their EHRs.

Apple recently extended its iPhone Health Records feature to the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs as well as patients at community hospitals that use an Evident EHR. A full list of providers using iPhone's Health Records app can be found here.
