SAN DIEGO – UC San Diego Health has launched a new mobile app to help patients manage their health information and communicate with the physicians. The MyUCSDHealth app also provides resources like facility visiting hours, directions and parking information. “We recognize patients are juggling many life obligations, including their health care needs,” said Dr. Thomas Savides, chief experience officer at UC San Diego Health, in a statement. “We want to meet patients where they are and provide the most convenient access to physicians and resources with the simple touch of a phone screen.” UC San Diego Health patients with a MyUCSDChart account can also use the MyUCSDHealth app to communicate securely with their care team, view test results, manage prescriptions, view and pay bills, and schedule different appointments and screenings, including annual mammograms. In addition, the app provides users with the ability to search a physician database and read bios of doctors from primary care to specialty care. “The launch of this app is part of our overall strategy to understand the needs of patients for an optimal experience and then align people, processes and technology to successfully make it happen,” said Kim Kennedy, chief marketing and communications officer at UC San Diego Health, in a statement.
