A friend gave me a great tip tonight! I don't know how I was unaware of this for the past two years!

Create a user account with LabCorp and Quest Diagnostics, the two big medical companies. Then go into the Apple Health app, tap the Health Data tab, and then the Health Records. Under the Accounts section, Add Account and connect to LabCorp and Quest. In a minute or so, it will suck down all your medical records, from routine health checks (cholesterol and blood pressure) to whatever you've got special to your health situation.

If you're setup with other health providers that support online access to your records, see if you can add them too.

This assumes your providers use LabCorp or Quest. Turns out mine do here in NoVa, So I've got a lot of my routine records from the past seven years. I don't know how to get stuff from previously, when I was in Rochester. And I can't get data from my specialists on some non-standard stuff.

But still, this seems like an improvement if you want to have access to your records.

Here's my records, now with 300+ entries. And you can see it's got my blood pressure, which I'll share because I'm fortunate to not have issues there. But you also see that it has 2018 and 2015, but nothing in between. I don't know why it's missing the intervening years. It seems the digital system isn't perfect. But I'm really intrigued by this.

Hope this helps you too!

This is really cool and I’ve already added these two accounts. I guess that under the category Health Records, data can only be downloaded.
