6 more hospitals, clinics join Apple's health records project

Six hospitals and clinics recently signed on to Apple's health records project.

The iPhone maker released plans to integrate patient health records into the iPhone's Health app last year. The program launched at 12 hospitals in January 2018, including leading providers like Danville, Pa.-based Geisinger and Baltimore-based Johns Hopkins Medicine. Since then, roughly 200 hospitals, health systems and clinics have signed onto the project, according to Apple's tally as of Jan. 22.

Ricky Bloomfield, MD, clinical and health informatics lead at Apple, tweeted an update Jan. 16, naming the six most recent hospitals and clinics to join the project.

The six latest hospitals and clinics to adopt Apple's health records feature:

  1. Brain Vitals in California
  2. Decatur County Hospital in Leon, Iowa
  3. Foot and Ankle Specialist in Arizona
  4. Margaret Mary Community Hospital in Batesville, Ind.
  5. Mid-Columbia Medical Center in The Dalles, Ore.
  6. Oregon Health & Science University in Portland
