This weekend Cedars-Sinai Medical Center joined The Mayo Clinic and Duke University Medical Center in allowing their patients access to integrate personal health data into their electronic medical record using Apple HealthKit. This update to the hospital’s medical records system enabled access through HealthKit to more than 80,000 patients.
