You can now share health data that you choose with your healthcare provider in a private way.
For example, if you have a concern about your heart health, you can now share your heart data.
This is shared securely.
No one else including Apple will see this information.
Your doctor can then view this data directly from their Electronic Health Record system and look for important trends such as changes in activity And a history of alerts like high heart rate.
Access to this information helps give your doctor a more complete view of everyday health outside of the clinic.
We are so excited about the zoo capability to share your date from the health app directly with your doctor.
This electronic health record companies in the US will be the first to support this feature.
And we look forward to expanding availability even more in the coming months.
Now for many of us it's not just the changes in our own health that we care about, it's the health of our family and loved ones too.
Whether they live with us or far away.
For some of us it means taking care of our kids and for others it's our aging parents.
And for many of us, it's actually taking care of both generations above and below to empower you to care.
We're introducing health sharing a private and secure way to view health data trends and alerts for the people most important to you.
For example, I could set up a sharing relationship with my mom and with her permission, I can view data like her heart rate, activity and laugh.
And just like with my own health data, trends proactively highlights changes in my mom's health data for me.
I can also receive notifications including high heart rate alerts, changes in mobility and more.
And it's easy for me to connect with her about her health.
So if I see a noteworthy change like her resting heart rate increasing, I can simply tap messages and start a conversation with my mom.
This is a powerful new way to stay connected to the well-being of those you love, you'll have peace of mind and they'll know they have a trusted partner on their health Journey since the beginning of our work in health, all of our health features have been architected to keep your data secure and protect your privacy.
Your health data is under your control and is encrypted in transit and at rest.
The permissions built into the sharing experience give you granular control over which types of data you share and with whom.
And you can make changes at any time right from the sharing tab.
Data you share is sent in an encrypted form.
An Apple does not have access to any of this information.
