A Guide to Apple Health: What You Need To Know

Staying healthy is a priority for many. With Apple Health, you can easily track your health and fitness data, share medical information with your healthcare provider, and even connect with third-party apps for additional features. Let’s take a look at how you can use Apple Health to stay healthy and share medical information.

How to Use the Apple Health App

The first step in using Apple Health is downloading the free app from the App Store. Once it is downloaded, you will be prompted to enter some basic information about yourself such as age, height, weight, etc. This data will help customize your experience within the app, providing tailored advice and guidance. After entering all of this information, you can choose which data points you want to track—ranging from heart rate and sleep patterns to nutrition and physical activity—and get started on tracking your progress.

Sharing Medical Information with Your Provider

One of the most helpful features of Apple Health is its ability to securely store and exchange medical information with your healthcare provider. You can easily access all of your medical records directly from the app and share them with any provider that participates in Apple's health network. This means that all of your important health data is readily available anytime you need it—which makes it easier for providers to quickly diagnose any issues or provide treatment options more quickly than ever before.

Connecting Third-Party Apps & Devices

You can also connect third-party apps or devices—such as Fitbits or other tracking devices—to the Apple Health platform for an even more comprehensive view of your health data. By connecting these external sources, you are able to track a wide range of metrics like steps taken or calories burned in order to get a better understanding of how active (or inactive) you have been over time. Plus, if there are any discrepancies between what one device tracks versus another device (or manual entry), then it's easy to reconcile by simply viewing both sources in one place on the app itself!

Apple Health offers powerful tools that make staying healthy easier than ever before—from tracking health data and sharing medical information with providers to connecting third-party devices & apps for an even more comprehensive view of your health journey.
