(MINOT, ND) – Finding a medical provider and accessing health information just got easier thanks to a new mobile application recently launched by Trinity Health.
The Trinity Mobile App, adapted for iPhone and Android devices, gives mobile-device users a tool to connect with Trinity services and providers with just a tap of the finger.
‘Mobile devices have become ubiquitous ñ they’re part of our everyday lives,’ said Jason Nichols, Web Developer and Web Content Strategist for Trinity Health. ‘After launching our online patient portal last year we explored adapting the same concept to a mobile platform to make it even easier for people to access their healthcare information and other resources no matter where they are.’ Nichols added that Trinity Health plans to build out its application with more value-added features to help users better manage their health.
The new app, produced by Trinity’s IT Department in partnership with Network Center, Inc., is available now. With the new app people can:
- Search for a provider or office location
- Gain access to contact numbers for specialists and pharmacies
- Access the MyTrinity Health eConnect Patient Portal, where patients can review information contained in their medical record, request prescription refills, communicate with members of their care team in secure messaging, and more
- View Trinity’s online nursery, Baby Bytes
The mobile app is just the latest instance of Trinity maintaining its status as a leader in healthcare IT. In July, for the seventh time in recent years Trinity Health was named one of the nation’s Most Wired health systems by Health & Hospitals Network magazine.
