Patients now have access to both Android and iOS versions of the
app so they can easily get lab results, pay their bills online, and
make appointments all from the palm of their hand
STANFORD, CALIF. – Stanford Health Care recently released a new
app that allows patients using Android smartphones to easily access
their own medical information anywhere in the world. The Android
version and the iOS 8 MyHealth mobile app are both designed to put a
patient's health information right at their fingertips, making it
quick and simple for them to manage their care, including reviewing
test results, paying medical bills, managing prescriptions, scheduling
appointments, and conducting video visits with Stanford physicians.
"At Stanford Health Care we are continuing to develop a suite
of mobile offerings and innovations that empower our patients, making
it easy and convenient for them to access the information and tools
they need to manage their health," said Pravene Nath,
MD, Chief Information Officer, Stanford Health Care. "By
developing and incorporating new digital technology and leveraging
available health data, we are providing increased, flexible
opportunities for patients to engage with clinicians and better manage
their overall care."
Over 200,000 people are now messaging their physicians, scheduling
appointments, and reviewing their medical records through Stanford
Health Care's MyHealth. The in-house developed apps leverage Stanford
Health Care's digital platform, which with its electronic health
record integration provides a seamless experience for the user to get
all the important health information they need. Additionally, the apps
allow patients to communicate directly with their care team through a
confidential and secure messaging system, and make quick, easy, and
secure online payments.
This latest version also includes new features such as:
- TouchID for faster and more secure entry; and
- In app
and Apple Watch alerts when new lab results and messages from your
care team are received.
The free Stanford Health Care MyHealth app can be downloaded from Google Play. It is available for current
Stanford Health Care patients with a MyHealth account. Existing
patients that do not have a MyHealth account can sign up at myhealth.stanfordhealthcare.org.
