While the world turns its attention to the hottest mobile hardware of the future in Barcelona, Spain as Mobile World Congress 2015 gets underway today, some of the biggest innovations in mobile healthcare applications are taking place today in the U.S. at some of its most prestigious schools.
Case in point: Stanford Health Care recently announced its new iOS 8 MyHealth mobile app for patients.
Developed in-house by Stanford Health Care (SHC) engineers, MyHealth “connects directly with Epic’s electronic health records, Apple’s HealthKit and cloud services for consumer health data monitoring.”
Impressively and conveniently, the SHC MyHealth mobile app is designed to make it quick and simple for patients to manage their care right from their iPhones, including reviewing test results and medical bills, managing prescriptions, scheduling appointments, and conducting video visits with a Stanford physician.
“At Stanford Health Care, we are reinventing how health care is delivered and our new custom MyHealth app is an important milestone in our efforts,” said Amir Dan Rubin, president and CEO of Stanford Health Care. “We provide care for some of the most technologically sophisticated patients in the country, whose lives revolve around innovation. After carefully evaluating all of the available mobile technologies, we recognized that to meet the needs and expectations of our patients we had to develop our own solution that worked seamlessly with our existing electronic health record system.”
