4 more hospitals join Apple health records project

Four more hospitals have recently signed on to 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 launched at 12 hospitals, including leading providers like Danville, Pa.-based Geisinger and Baltimore-based Johns Hopkins Medicine. Since then, more than 90 hospitals, health systems and clinics have signed onto the project, according to Apple's tally as of Sept. 6.

Ricky Bloomfield, MD, clinical and health informatics lead at Apple, tweeted the four hospitals that recently joined the initiative Sept. 6.

Here are the four latest hospitals and clinics to adopt Apple's health records feature:

1. Norton Healthcare (Louisville, Ky.)

2. Renown Health (Reno, Nev.)

3. Torrance (Calif.) Memorial Medical Center

4. Vascular Surgery Associates (Tallahassee, Fla.)
