Akron Children’s Hospital is debuting its newest app – Akron Children’s Anywhere. It’s part of the hospital’s efforts to continually add services to make hospital visits easier.
The app is available for both Apple and Android and will put a variety of health care tools in the palm of your hand on your smartphone.
Patients already familiar with MyChart will find expanded services with the app. Those who don’t have MyChart can use the app, too. It’s available for anyone in the community.
Some of the services available are: Find a doctor, bill pay, first aid, advice, symptom checker, medications lists and more.
“In a browser, information is actually going back and forth wherein an app, it’s resident to your mobile platform. It’s faster, it’s easier and you can personalize your own experience and is just an efficient tool,” said Harun Rashid, Akron Children’s chief information officer.
The new app gives users quick, secure access to MyChart and all its features, including messaging your doctor, requesting prescription renewals, direct scheduling and obtaining test results.
