Sanford App Gives Patients Convenience



Bookmark and Share

A new phone app is making it a little easier for patients to connect with their doctors.

The system is called “My Sanford Chart.”

The phone app and web system allows people to have access to their electronic health records, such as medications and immunizations.

People can also message their doctor a question and set up future appointments making it convenient for users.

“I can't imagine not using it, it's great," said Jongejeugd.

The last time Katie Jongejeugd called her doctor was a year ago, she uses the “My Sanford App,” for anything medical related.

"All of the things I need to do, prescriptions, records, labs, there's all just right there. It's just like using my email, I just log on and it's all there right for me," said Jongejeugd.

The app allows her to track her daughter Bailey and son Jacob's health too.

"Both of my kids shot records I have available to me right away. I print those off, I don't ever have to call into the office," said Jongejeugd.

"In the paper world, it was just really cumbersome and awkward and difficult, now it's there all the time," said Suttle.

Allison Suttle, Chief Medical Informatics Officer at Sanford Hospital, said her patients using “My Chart” are more engaged and involved in their care.

Suttle also uses the app for personal use.

"With my son, I can, the night before camp starts, print off his immunization records and send it to them," said Suttle.

She said the system started several years ago, but has really caught the attention of patients at the hospital.

"It's great for efficiency, it's really fun, it's wow, it's new technology, but it really takes us to a new level of care and patient care," said Suttle.

For Jongejeugd, “My Chart” is convenient, easy to use and patient friendly.

"I think it's the way of the future and it's just like we do emails and computers," said Jongejeugd.

Sanford officials said nearly 15& of their patients are signed up for “My Sanford Chart.”

The phone app and system are free Sanford patients.
