Mayo Clinic Sets Industry Standard for Mobile Experience
ROCHESTER, Minn. — Mayo Clinic has created a comprehensive mobile health application; combining a custom mobile experience with unparalleled expertise and access. Mayo Clinic patients can now read their doctor’s notes, see lab results, refill prescriptions, get directions to their next appointment, and get ideas for where to eat lunch.
Mayo Clinic launched Patient, a free Apple iPhone/iPad application, this week. Its features are much more extensive than any previous smartphone offerings. As smartphone use continues to grow, Mayo Clinic decided to create an application to help Mayo Clinic patients and the people who accompany them.
For a Mayo Clinic patient, the functionality is personalized, providing secure access to their medical record, an up-to-date appointment schedule, lab results and navigation to amenities on Mayo Clinic campuses as well as in the community.
“Mayo Clinic has always put the needs of patients first, and we built this mobile health application based on what our patients said they would find useful to enhance the way they connect with us,” says Sidna Tulledge-Scheitel, M.D., vice dean of eHealth, Mayo Clinic. “Mayo Clinic is now literally an in-your-pocket resource for people across the world, extending beyond our walls and following them wherever they go.”
