Mayo Clinic Sets Industry Standard for Mobile Experience: Personal, Portable and Participatory
ROCHESTER, Minn. — May 15, 2012. Mayo Clinic has created a comprehensive mobile health application; combining a custom mobile experience with unparalleled expertise and access. Empowering patients with information at their fingertips, this app sets a new standard for health care apps.
VIDEO ALERT: A video demonstration of the Mayo Clinic app is available here.
The Mayo Clinic patient app provides patients and consumers access to health information and management tips from Mayo's Web and online publications, a list of clinical trials at Mayo, and links to request an appointment at any of our locations.
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."
The Mayo Clinic Patient app is available in the Apple iTunes store.
