SALISBURY, Md. — TidalHealth will now offer MyChart subscribers a view of their overall health and well-being by partnering with the Apple Health app.
The app tracks sleep, steps, nutrition and more on Apple devices, while MyChart focuses on secure medical records, lab results, appointments and messages from health providers. Both are free.
TidalHealth’s vice president of information technology Dr. Mark Weisman hopes the partnership provides patients a single view of their health.
“MyChart really has the ability to comprehensively bring all the data together. It is important for patients who use multiple systems for care to have a unified, single-source view of their health,” he said. “We know that patients who are more engaged in their health care actually do better in life.
“So we want to make it possible for people to have that opportunity, if they’re so motivated to do those things, and we want them to be able to do it with TidalHealth,” said Dr. Weisman, also the health system’s chief information officer and chief medical informatics officer.
The collaboration of the two apps is just one of many goals for the TidalHealth team, which continues to strive for advanced online care.
