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

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

The iPhone maker released plans in January to integrate patient health records into its Health app as part of the 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, almost 200 hospitals, health systems and clinics have signed onto the project, according to Apple's tally as of Dec. 13.

Ricky Bloomfield, MD, clinical and health informatics lead at Apple, tweeted an update Dec. 12, listing the seven hospitals that recently joined the initiative.
