Louisiana hospital partners with Apple for health records access

Ruston-based Northern Louisiana Medical Center patients can now access their medical data through Apple's health records app.

Northern Louisiana Medical Center's partnership with Apple aims to make patients' health records more accessible. Using the app, patients can view their medical information including immunizations, lab results and medications straight from their iPhone.  

Patients' medical records from the hospital were previously stored across multiple healthcare providers' websites. With Apple's health records, patients' medical data from participating organizations will be stored in one place.
