Apple is putting health records directly into veterans’ pockets.

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

Following a trial run with select patients this summer, all former military personnel who use iOS and receive care through the Veterans Health Administration now have entreé to a “fuller, more comprehensive picture” of their health.

Patients’ medical records are typically held in multiple locations, forcing people to log into various provider websites to manually piece together their data.

But what if those details were stored at your fingertips—accessible with the click of a button?

Apple’s Health Records feature debuted in beta early last year, with Johns Hopkins Medicine, Cedars-Sinai, and Penn Medicine among the first participants.

“Helping veterans gain a better understanding of their health is our chance to show our gratitude for their service,” Apple Chief Operating Officer Jeff Williams said in a statement.

“By working with the VA to offer Health Records on iPhone,” he continued, “we hope to help those who served have greater peace of mind that their health care is in good hands.”

The VA is the country’s largest medical system, providing service to more than 9 million veterans across 1,243 facilities—including hospitals and clinics.

This week, it joined Johns Hopkins, University of California San Diego, Quest Diagnostics, Allscripts, and 400 other healthcare provider organizations, laboratory networks, and electronic health records vendors to support Health Records on iPhone.

Vets can simply sign into their provider’s patient portal in the Health app to find details about allergies, conditions, immunizations, lab results, medications, procedures, and vitals.

The platform regularly updates personal records, giving folks access to “a single, integrated snapshot of their health profile whenever they want, quickly and privately,” according to Apple.

All Health Records data—including sensitive, personal information—is encrypted and protected with the user’s iPhone passcode, Touch ID, or Face ID.

This week the company Omni MedSci filed another lawsuit against Apple in Northern California, which refers to a new patent obtained Omni MedSci 31 December 2019. It is believed that this patent will strengthen the position of the plaintiff. We will remind, the first model of the Apple Watch was introduced in late 2014 and went on sale in spring next year.

According to the company, Omni MedSci, from 2014 through 2016, she collaborated with Apple, and even provided the appropriate technologies, but at some point Apple refused further cooperation and did not license the patents to Omni MedSci. The application for the above mentioned patent was filed in 2016.

The disk subsystem was represented by a disc drive, designed for diskettes of 3,5 inches. All the components of computers were placed in the common tank with a monitor on a monochrome CRT with a size of 9 inches. This machine cost 2495 dollars.

Apple Macintosh emphasis was placed on ease of use, due to the presence of a GUI and mouse. The subsequent history of the industry showed that the rate for this factor is fully justified.
