This week: Medical records, health proxies and cobalt

Now there's a new way for iPhone users to store their health records from multiple health providers in one handy place on their iPhone.

Upstate Medical University has partnered with Apple to support HealthRecords. Neal Seidberg, MD, explains how this can benefit patients, and how the information is protected.

Also this week on the show: the importance of selecting a health care proxy, plus information on cobalt and its relation to health.

Tune in Sunday, September 2 at 6 a.m. and 9 p.m. for "HealthLink on Air."
