        Apple announces the brand new shiny Heatlh app with the new Health Records capablity.  This is all lashed to FHIR (Fast Healthcare Interoperability Resources), a REST based text exchange protocol for healthcare data. Woo hoo.

         

        https://www.apple.com/newsroom/2018/01/apple-announces-effortless-solution-bringing-health-records-to-iPhone/

         

        So they add the following data to HK:

        • Allergies
        • Clincial Vitals - "what the clinic says" vs "what Withings says" I suppose
        • Conditions
        • Immunizations
        • Lab Results
        • Medications
        • Proceedures

         

        None of this is presented in the HealthKit.framework headers:

        ..../Xcode-beta.app/Contents/Developer/Platforms/iPhoneSimulator.platform/Developer/SDKs/iPhoneSimulator.sdk/System/Library/Frameworks/HealthKit.framework/Headers/

         

        So how to get something like HKCategoryTypeIdentifierAllergyMedication to add such values from an app on the device?

         

        I certainally hope that the interface and data elements are not locked to medical institutions... my medical data belongs to me, not my doctor... I let my doctor borrow it.
