4 hospitals, health systems that have launched apps in the past 60 days

Several hospitals and health systems have rolled out new mobile applications for wayfinding and patient communication in the first two months of 2020.

Here are four new hospital apps, beginning with the most recently launched:

1. Pittsburgh-based Allegheny Health Network deployed MyChart Care Companion, part of the Epic-developed patient portal MyChart, to help newly discharged hospital patients track their care journey and communicate with providers from home.

2. Cedars-Sinai Health System in Los Angeles began rolling out an app, designed in partnership with health tech startup Feedtrail, through which patients can complete short surveys about their hospital stays in real time.

3. A new wayfinding app gives patients at Piedmont (Ga.) Columbus Regional, part of Atlanta-based Piedmont Healthcare, step-by-step directions to any destination within the hospital and within Piedmont pharmacies, urgent care locations and physicians' offices.

4. San Antonio-based University Health System partnered with Gozio Health to develop a wayfinding platform of its own, which will guide patients through more than 3 million square feet of hospital property, including satellite clinics, urgent care centers and parking garages.
