CMC offers new mobile app to expand telehealth services

Posted

The MyHealthONE Mobile App is now available for both iOS and Android devices.

The COVID-19 health crisis has reinforced that digital technology is playing an essential role in helping patients manage their own health. The MyHealthONE Mobile App is a user-friendly app that saves patients time, allows them to easily interact with healthcare professionals and puts the power of information at their fingertips.

“We worked hard in the early days of COVID-19 to offer patients access to our doctors and specialists through our expanded telehealth services, and patient response was overwhelming,” said Colleton Medical Center CEO Jimmy Hiott. “They found new ways to manage their health with their phones and computers.”

From Fitbits to Smartwatches, patients are becoming more comfortable with mobile apps to track and monitor their health. Now, with the MyHealthONE Mobile App, healthcare is open 24/7 with no waiting from anywhere in the world. Patients can pre-register for appointments and save time at the doctor’s office, and plan for children’s well visits. The app will provide patients with tools to help find a doctor, manage appointments, view test results and even sign up for classes.

With the new MyHealthONE app’s proxy feature, caregivers can access their loved one’s health records, help schedule their appointments, and message the nursing team — all from the convenience of their mobile device. The functionality will make it easier to share clinical documents with other providers for alignment on treatment options as well.

“We understand patients are all unique and their needs may be different. From a 21-year-old recent college graduate to a 33-year-old new mother, from a 45-year-old cancer survivor to a 75-year-old grandfather with a chronic condition, this app can help manage a personal healthcare journey. It is our goal is to empower our patients and give them to tools to take control and safeguard their own health,” said Hiott.

The new MyHealthONE Mobile App is HIPAA compliant and available free in the App Store or Google Play Store.
