Lee Memorial Health System Announces New MyChart App for Mobile Devices

Medicine is going mobile! In addition to MyChart internet access, Lee Memorial Health System now offers a MyChart Mobile App for patients to access their medical records. The MyChart® App is the only one of its kind in the area, offering patients 24 hour access to health records, information about physician appointments, tests, and other medical services from any Android or Apple device with internet access. The MyChart App gives patients the information they need right at their fingertips, anytime, anywhere.

The use of MyChart and electronic health records has not only simplified the delivery of safer, more reliable, and better coordinated care, but has also encouraged the growing trend of having patients more engaged in their health care.

The MyChart app offers:

One Seamless Shared Record. The use of electronic health records puts the patient, caregiver, physician, and specialists all on the same page; providing a single record across all settings to support coordinated care focused on the specific needs of the patient.
Quick and Easy Access to Your Physician’s Office. The convenient features of MyChart offer patients a little something we all can use more of – time! With the push of a few buttons you have the power to: request prescription refills; receive important health reminders (coming in 2014); send messages to your physician’s office; and review, request, or cancel appointments.

Quick and Easy Access to Your Medical Information. MyChart provides access to your health summary, medications, and most test results. By giving the patient direct access to this information, MyChart lets patients monitor their care and especially helps those with chronic conditions to better manage their health. Individuals with chronic disease can receive health reminders when regular tests are due and afterwards review the results and their doctor’s instructions all through MyChart. Having MyChart enables patients to be pro-active and gives them a sense of confidence and satisfaction with their care.

A Tool to Help You Assist with a Family Member’s Care. If authorized, MyChart provides access to the above features on behalf of a loved one. This can be an invaluable tool for monitoring children, elderly parents, or other loved ones who need help managing their health. Patients with efficiently managed care have fewer visits to the hospital, which means more time spent doing the things you enjoy with the people you love.

Currently, MyChart and the MyChart app offer access to your physician’s office records. Hospital visit information is expected to be available shortly.

To get started with MyChart, visit your doctor and ask for an activation code. Activation codes can be provided, in person, by any participating Lee Physician Group, Lee Convenient Care, or Florida Neurology Group provider.
