Just two months after Apple announced its Health Records solution that allows consumers to see their medical records right on their iPhone, 39 health systems have signed on to launch the feature, the tech giant announced this week.

This information can help patients better understand their health history, have informed conversations with physicians and family members, and make future healthcare decisions.
This is a beautiful product at the intersection of digital technology and customer centricity.
