Concept: How we hope battery management in iOS 11.3 will look

Apple invites hospitals to beta test personal health record with patients

iPhone users will be able to download medical records from hospitals after Apple software update

Specifically, the battery health feature in iOS 11.3 show users the health of their iPhone battery, and also recommend if a battery needs to be serviced. In a blog post, SPM co-founder and chairman emeritus Dave deBronkart said the Apple project is "a nice start", but won't offer data patients can't already access through portals, limited to "allergies, conditions, immunizations, lab results, medications, procedures and vitals". Alphabet (Google), Microsoft and Samsung have similar ambitions in the space.

What's more, the release will bundle a total of four fresh Animoji - a bear, a dragon, a lion and a skull - in addition to a new Health Records section of the Health application and a slew of enhancements for ARKit, Apple's AR framework.

Soon after Farr's report was published, Healthcare Informatics spoke to Micky Tripathi, Ph.D., president and CEO of the MA eHealth Collaborative, a notable health IT expert, who said at the time, "Apple has a unique positioning where it is in customers' minds with respect to people having already put their faith in Apple".

Apple's latest update to the Health app could mark an important milestone in the digitization of health records.

"Streamlining information sharing between patients and their caregivers can go a long way towards making the patient experience a positive one". Data collected through the app is confidential to the app creator and the patient.

The ability to access and control your own health and medical records - as opposed to relying on your doctor's office or other healthcare companies - aims to redefine and deepen people's relationships with their doctors.

Now, the question that is likely top of mind: how does Apple protect your privacy and security? Don't be surprised if it takes a few minutes, but if it takes more than 15, you might want to call Apple for help.

You can send these Animoji via iMessage, but many have also used them to create lip-sync videos to a range of popular songs. After that, you will see the Apple TV is displayed as an available device in the Home app. If that happens you're expected to contact your doctor directly the old fashioned way, assuming the physician hasn't gotten in touch with you first. He also noted that it will let patients decide what data should be shareable and will ease data transfer.

Apple is just getting started here. You can sign in without being a paid member of the Developer Program, but you won't be able to see all the downloads and info available to a full member (including the iOS configuration profile download necessary to install iOS 11.3).
