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

Louisville, Ky.-based Baptist Health and Arlington-based Texas Health Resources are among the latest healthcare organizations to join Apple's health records project.

In January, the Cupertino, Calif.-based tech giant unveiled plans 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, nearly 80 hospitals have signed onto the project, according to Apple's tally.

Here are nine hospitals and clinics that joined Apple's health records project in the past two weeks, according to a series of tweets by Ricky Bloomfield, MD, clinical and health informatics lead at Apple:

  • Baptist Health (Louisville, Ky.)
  • Buffalo Medical Group (Williamsville, N.Y.)
  • Carroll County Memorial Hospital (Carrollton, Mo.)
  • Coquille (Ore.) Valley Hospital
  • Catherine Vanderloos (Shreveport, La.)
  • Memorial Community Health (Aurora, Neb.)
  • Texas Health Resources (Arlington)
  • UCLA Health (Los Angeles)
  • Vibrant Health Family Clinics (River Falls, Wis.)
