Apple has introduced personal health records. Think you’ve heard it before?

Actually, it is the same, but different. Microsoft and Google were ahead of their time and the medical community or electronic health records were not ready for them the first go-around.

What makes it different is that this time, many doctors’ EHRs have affiliated portals and Apple PHRs are now interoperable with them. In the first phase, Apple is offering PHRs for iPhones to hospitals with portals, to Beta test with their patients.
