It’s far better than nothing. It’s probably limited most by MyChart, at best a clunky interface even on a desktop. However, iPhone app is most annoying for the poor integration with FaceID, as it only opens your collection of KeyChain passwords, instead of automatically loading the password. Then once selected from the long list manually, the password often loads very slowly, often causing me to think the app is stalled. Another annoyance is that the red alert icons don’t reset after reviewing a category. For example, currently the app suggests 3 billing issues as shown by the little, red circle, yet review shows all visits paid and account balance of $0.00. Similarly, I have persisting red indicators that haven’t reset in Tests and other categories, despite my full review of each category. Otherwise works okay and allows easy Rx refills.

Thanks so much for this feedback. We have Face ID integrated - have you enabled it the app yet? Sounds like you may just be using it for accessing your keychain, rather than actually logging in. To enable, log in with your password, then tap Settings from the menu (top left corner). Finally, tap MyChart Settings, then enable Face ID. If this doesn't fix things, we'd love to hear more: email us at As for the alerts - we are aware of the update issue, as well as some persistent alerts, especially on the billing icon. We're working to resolve the problem, and will have a new solution available soon, along with some better alert personalization options!

Beware - Communication Breakdowns and Confusion Guaranteed

The app is supposed to help with communication between a doctor’s office and patient, instead it creates an even bigger bureaucratic bottle neck than is already taking place at Northwestern Fertility Clinic. My experience has been that I have several extra steps each time I need to connect with the office: logging in each time (no ability for facial recognition), having a limited amount of sender options (I can’t email a nurse directly, only my doctor but they never respond directly), unresponsiveness (sometimes I have to wait days for an urgent question to be answered) and runaround from the office (when I call the office they tell me to send a MyChart message) and when I send a MYChart message I see that someone has read it but not responded.

The app does have some good UI elements: easy to find the message, billing and results sections. The bones are there for it be a great app with a little consideration for the patient experience. I don’t have insight into what the doctors and nurses see on their end, but it seems like there could be some better designs in place to help connect the two sides. Get a UX expert, it’ll be well worth it and save a lot of time, frustration and patient retention.

Hello- we're sorry you're having trouble with MyNM. Face ID is available - click the gear icon on the menu to visit the app's settings and turn it on. It sounds like the other issues pertain more to an issue at the clinic you visit, so this feedback has been passed along to the manager of the Fertility Clinic. If you'd like for someone to respond to you directly, please email us at so that we can communicate with you personally.

They should accept feedback!

This app has some nice features and it provides a convenient place for communications, test results, and appointments. But there are some real annoyances. They seem to only expect you to contact them via phone; no email option. No way to give feedback on the app itself. Let me give you suggestions if you want to improve! I tried to find a physician via the app but it ended up not really being supported, and it seemed like nobody ever tested the scenario. You can’t forward messages: I don’t manage my communications in your app, even if you think I should. No way to export test results. Again give me access to my own information rather than locking it in your limited app. You’re not the world: try to be play with others. And support email!

Developer Response ,

Hi there, and thanks for your feedback. We'd like to hear more about how you'd like to leverage email instead of communicating through the app, as well as the scenario you tried to follow to find a physician. Could you contact us at if you have time for some additional feedback? We use this feedback to help focus improvement efforts.
