mHealthWatch learned today that LifeMap Solutions, a subsidiary of BioTime, Inc., and Mount Sinai Health System have announced that MountSinaiNY is now available for Android devices.
This marks our entry into the large and critical Android market.
Originally launched on iOS in June, MountSinaiNY offers patients a mobile portal to find centralized information and services, providing greater access to and utilization of the Mount Sinai Health System’s services.
“With MountSinaiNY, we’ve brought our expertise in building user-friendly apps to the Android platform to reach a larger patient population,” said Corey Bridges, CEO of LifeMap Solutions. “Reaching diverse populations is a key promise of the mHealth revolution, and we’re proud to play a role in making that a reality. Expanding into the Android market will improve the quality of large-scale research studies and the impact of clinical care apps.”
MountSinaiNY was developed by Mount Sinai’s Department of Information Technology and LifeMap Solutions.
The app offers users a variety of features, including general facility information, appointment booking, bill pay, and access to patient medical records. Future updates to the app will include telemedicine capabilities, wayfinding, and enhanced access to Mount Sinai services.
