CVS to let customers share med history with Apple Health
CVS’s health insurance subsidiary, Aetna, has unveiled a new application that will allow members to opt-in to share their electronic medical records (EMRs) with Apple; in turn, Apple will use the information to help Apple Watch wearers meet personalized fitness and health goals.
Aetna, which in 2017 was purchased by CVS Health for $69 billion and is now a subsidiary, said the new app builds on a 2016 collaboration with Apple in which 90% of participants reported a health benefit from using an Apple Watch. Participation requires that Aetna members have an iPhone 5S or later and a first-generation Apple Watch or later.
