Cedars-Sinai to offer hospital app on Apple Watch

Los Angeles-based Cedars-Sinai Medical Center launched its Apple Watch app Sept. 27, becoming one of only a few hospitals to offer a digital, interactive app on the device.

The app provides patients a resource for managing medical records and connecting with care teams. It also helps them locate the nearest hospital or urgent care facility and search for physicians by condition, procedure or name via its "Find a Doctor" tool.

"By expanding access to the Cedars-Sinai app on the Apple Watch, we can bring a whole new level of accessibility to our patients," said Matthew Pufall, mobile product manager at Cedars-Sinai. "Our goal is to become ambassadors for the digital tools and innovative features Cedars-Sinai uses to improve the patient experience."
