Ratings and Reviews
Great but NOT user friendly
The app is great for keeping up with my appointments, communicating with the doctor, refilling prescriptions. However, when it indicates that there is a new message, I’m not sure which message is new unless I look at the date. My inbox reflect that I have two messages. When I click on the inbox tab, nothing happens. It would be nice if when I click on it, it go straight to the new messages and the indication of “two new messages” disappears reflecting that I have read the messages. It would also be nice if there is an indication of some sort to show that there are new messages and which ones are NEW.
In regards to the “to do list,” it would be ideal if I could decline the options or have a yes or no button or something to show that I don’t need to do what it’s indicating. For example, my dental office is totally different from my primary care physician and they keep telling me my dental appointment is overdue. I wish there was some way I could tell it no or not applicable. Additionally, it keeps telling me I’m overdue for an influenza shot. I have never, and will never, get one so to be able to decline or simply say “not applicable” would be great.
If these minor disturbances could be fixed, it would be a five star app for me.
I know there is a way!
I have been using this app with UTSW for several years, and added SSM Health this year. It has made what would have been the difficult task of keeping track of multiple providers and facilities appointments, test results and communications easier. The MyChart message feature has saved hours of waiting to communicate with my healthcare team. The facility’s fluency with the app does make a difference, but there is nothing complex about the patient side of the tool.
The Blue Jeans virtual appointment feature is simple to use as well, though I find the appointment notifications for virtual appointments is not working as well as the in person one- need to add telephone recorded reminders. I have missed several appointments because the reminder emails get lost when you don’t have time to go through 300 emails to find them. For comparison, I have never missed an in person visit or even been late for one.
Another improvement for me would be access to the Radiology studies, not just the reports, but I’m not sure most folks care about that. Since I use an IPhone and not a computer, that might be available already.
I need to also have my husband’s medical records available and would like to have another copy of the App on my phone to do that. So far, I haven’t been able to figure It out. It would also be helpful to be able to mark his app icon to distinguish one from the other. Would love input?!
Developer Response ,
Hello, thanks for the feedback! The best way to gain access to your husband's medical records is to request proxy access. Please contact your healthcare organization to make the request. I hope that helps, and thanks again!
Could be better
This app is great for a number of reasons besides checking test results and appointment reminders. •Through the app I can email my doctor directly, (very often they or they’re nurse will respond within a few hours so I assume the app makes that easier for them as well. •The app has a list of my meds (accurate only if you reported it accurately to the doctor) and provides an easy way to ask the doctor for a refill.•I can request an appointment from a established doctor •I can view and even pay my bill. All of these are things I can do securely through this app. It is very useful. What I CANNOT do is make notes. Currently I use this app only for check appointment times and the occasional email to the doctor. But I would use it weekly if I had the ability to make private notes. A note associated with a recent visit. Notes on possible drug benefits or side effects as I experience them. Notes on questions to as at upcoming appointments. Associating these notes with the drug or appointment or doctor directly within the app; helps keep me organized and would improve my healthcare as it makes it more likely I’ll remember details of a visit and concerns I need to bring up at the next visit.
