Initially, the feature is reportedly only supported in the United States for data transfer to physicians, and will be available to customers of six electronic health record companies. People who use this option will be able to transmit various data to their healthcare provider, including heart rate and time spent exercising. The transfer of information from the Health application will help doctors to closely monitor indicators related to the patient’s health, without the need for face-to-face appointments.

The source says that initially, EHR companies will gradually roll out support for the new iOS 15 option. Over time, it will be rolled out to all healthcare facilities that work with EHRs. As for the extension of the function of transferring medical data through the Health app directly to doctors outside the United States, no timeframes have yet been announced.
