Apple has partnered with medical records company Epic Systems to bring a health record tool on macOS.

Apple wanted Epic Systems to develop a native version of the tool for macOS, but the latter is instead working on one that would be simpler to use than a native application, reports AppleInsider.

Epic Systems is the largest provider of electronic health records in the US.

A report from 2021 claimed that over 250 million patients have a medical record kept by Epic Systems.

Last month, Apple's latest update of macOS Ventura had introduced a "Continuity Camera" feature that allowed users to connect their iPhone to a Mac to use it as a webcam with applications like FaceTime or Zoom.

With the new feature, users were able to use their iPhone as a web camera by wirelessly connecting it to their Mac.
