Houston Methodist Hospital is the first hospital in its city to join Apple's health records project.

The iPhone maker released plans in January to integrate patient health records into the iPhone's Health app as part of its iOS 11.3 beta rollout. The program first launched at 12 hospitals, including leading providers like Danville, Pa.-based Geisinger and Baltimore-based Johns Hopkins Medicine. Since then, almost 90 hospitals have signed onto the project, according to Apple's tally as of Aug. 22.
