First Look: Weight Loss Department at Lahey Hospital & Medical Center Launches Mobile App

On Monday, mHealthWatch learned that the new Zappix app (which is fully HIPAA compliant), now provides patients of Lahey’s Center for Medical Weight Loss who call from a smartphone with a visual call experience when scheduling an appointment, getting additional information, or speaking with a clinic specialist.

“By offering this app to our patients we take patient engagement to the next level and provide an improved patient experience,” said Amanda Powell, MD Director of Medical Weight Loss at Lahey Hospital & Medical Center. “Our patients will now have an alternative and convenient way to access the information and services they need to stay on track.”

According to the official word this morning, any contact with the Weight Loss Center made through the mobile app is much shorter than one made via a traditional voice call, is simple to use and offers additional Omni-Channel Support options that are not available during a standard voice call, such as filling in a form or watching a video.

“I’m excited to see our new healthcare solution working for the medical weight loss department at Lahey Hospital & Medical Center,” said Avner Schneur President and CEO of Zappix. “Through a visual representation of the phone menu on a smartphone and computer screen this platform offers patients an intuitive and convenient visual interaction which simplifies their communication with healthcare providers. Zappix Healthcare Visual IVR empowers hospitals, clinics and any other healthcare providers to improve patient experience with a powerful visual self-service IVR and actionable analytics.”
