Northwest Health launches Apple's iPhone health records app

Listen

Springdale, Ark.-based Northwest Health now offers its patients access to their medical information through Apple's health records application on iPhone, Talk Business reports.

Northwest Health patients can now use their iPhone to view their health information, including allergies, medications, conditions and procedures. Previously, patients' health records were stored in multiple locations, which required individuals to log into their separate care providers' websites to view their medical data.

"We're excited to offer patients this convenient access to their health record in the palm of their hand," Northwest Health market CEO Denten Park told the publication.

Apple collaborated with various healthcare industry members to develop its health records feature. The app aims to take a consumer-friendly approach to medical data and is built on fast healthcare interoperability resources.

In June, Apple began offering self-registration for the health records app to hospitals and health systems interested in implementing the app at their organizations.
