Cleveland Clinic, 27 other hospitals join Apple's Health Records initiative

Cleveland Clinic is one of the latest hospitals allowing its  patients to access their health data on their iPhone as part of Apple's Health Records beta program.

"Access to one's own medical records is a crucial part of the digital transformation taking place in healthcare today, and enhances our relationship with our patients," said Peter Rasmussen, MD, a neurosurgeon and medical director of digital health at Cleveland Clinic. "Our goal is to make that access as easy, convenient and useful as possible, placing patients firmly in the center of their own health data."
