Epic and Omaha-based Nebraska Medicine are spearheading patient engagement efforts using the Apple Watch.

Epic's MyCare app is available on Apple Watch, and it allows patients to view messages, appointment details and medication information. Additionally, Apple Watch can notify wearers when test results, billing statements and health maintenance reminders are available on their iPhones.

"We recognize that as a more of our patients use devices like the Apple Watch, we not only have to be able to use that technology to initially provide convenience for them, but we also have to envision how we can also improve patient outcomes via use of the device in the future," said Michael Ash, MD, chief transformation officer at Nebraska Medicine, in a statement.
