A New Way to Track Your Health

Research and innovation frequently go together. As we make discoveries in healthcare, our goal is to use that information to advance the health of our patients today and tomorrow.
 
In order to make our health care better, MedStar Health has joined in with other providers to work with Apple to be the first institutions to be a part of the new Apple Health Records app, allowing patients to see their medical records on their iPhone.


While the app is still in beta testing, I’m proud to be a part of the group of early adopters. Making it easy for patients to access their medical records can help them have better outcomes and a better understanding of their care.
