Sutter Health Offers “MyChart PHR for the Iphone” mHealth (Epic Medical Records)
Posted Jan 03 2011 6:56pm
This is hard to believe that Sutter beat Kaiser to the phone here, but in fairness Kaiser is a much larger system and perhaps their set up and getting everything ready is a little more complex with so many more locations, but Kaiser was the first to put it online to be fair. Stanford Hospital also uses Epic as well as a few other well known hospitals and systems like Memorial Care and Cedar Sinai.
"MyChart for the iPhone” is the actual name of the program and it can be downloaded either from your iPhone or the iTunes online app store and we all know where that is. Now patients can send secure messages, make appointments and more from their Iphone. BD
