Health Records on iPhone now available to veterans across the US

The tech titan partnered with the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs to give vets access to personal data on their iPhone.

The Location Services white paper explains how "Location Services acts as a gatekeeper between the user and apps that want to use location data", how Apple makes sure that "Significant Locations" can't be read by them, and how the latest iOS and iPadOS versions have new protections preventing apps from discovering users' location.

The VA serves more than nine million veterans across more than 1,200 facilities, which now includes Allscripts, John Hopkins, Quest Diagnostics and University of California San Diego.

Apple Inc on Wednesday said that USA military veterans who utilize its iOS gadgets and get medicinal care from the Veterans Health Administration will have the option to get to their wellbeing records on the gadgets.

This webinar will help providers develop patient-centric strategies to modernize their patient collection infrastructure and increase financial performance.

The VA gradually worked with Apple over the summer on the technology and now its available for all.

Apple is putting health records directly into veterans' pockets.

"Helping veterans gain a better understanding of their health is our chance to show our gratitude for their service", Jeff Williams, Apple's chief operating officer, said in a blog post.

Health Records on iPhone brings together veterans' hospitals, clinics, and existing information in one place. Apple's Health Records initiative promises to deliver a "fuller, more comprehensive picture" of a user's health.

This capability was developed through the VA's Veterans Health Application Programming Interface (Veterans Health API).

The continually updated records let patients view an all-in-one snapshot of their health profile whenever they need it.

Apple has been working on partnerships with healthcare organizations to allow access to health records on its devices, promoting their privacy and security features.
