Carilion Clinic’s MyChart, an online personalized health management tool for patients, is now available as a mobile app.
MyChart launched in 2008 as a secure online program for Carilion’s patients to see test results, email doctors, view upcoming appointments and check immunization and medication records.
Since the number of patients using the system has grown to about 20,000 people, said Carilion spokeswoman Allie Buth.
Last year, Carillion began to develop the mobile app as way to make the MyChart system easier for patients to access, said Dr. Anthony Stavola, vice chairman of Carilion’s Department of Family and Community Medicine, in a news release.
“It is our hope that patients feel better connected to their healthcare providers and more proactive in managing their health,” Stavola said.
The app is available for iPhones, iPads, and Android phones and tablets.
