Stanford Health Care Launches Custom Mobile App That Connects To Epic EHR And Lets Patients Manage Their Care On The Go

Stanford Health Care MyHealth app now available in the Apple App Store

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. 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. The MyHealth app also supports Stanford Health Care’s new ClickWell Care, which delivers the services of a Stanford primary care physician online, combined with customized wellness coaching from a dedicated SHC certified personal trainer and online review of home health data.

“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, 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.”

With the new MyHealth app, patients can communicate directly with their care team through a confidential and secure messaging system. In addition, the app automatically syncs with wearable and wireless products, allowing patients to take vital signs at home or on the go. That data is automatically and securely added to the patient’s chart in Epic for their physician to review remotely.

“The SHC MyHealth app allows patients to connect their lives with their health care,” said Pravene Nath, MD, Chief Information Officer, Stanford Health Care. “By integrating with companies like Withings, our physicians have access to meaningful patient data right in Epic, without having to ask the patient come in for an appointment. We believe this is the future of how care will be delivered for many types of chronic conditions.”

The free SHC MyHealth app can be downloaded from the Apple App Store. It is available for current Stanford Health Care patients with a MyHealth account. Existing SHC patients that do not have a MyHealth account can sign up at
