Michigan health agency launches online portal

The Michigan Department of Community Health has launched a mobile app and online portal to boost connectivity between patients and providers.

The app, myHealthButton and the portal, myHealthPortal, were designed to help give Michigan Medicaid patients the resources to better manage and be involved in their health. The applications offer members views of their health ID cards, provider searches and authorized diagnoses and provider listings for children's health care service beneficiaries.

"As we work with our residents to promote better self-awareness and responsibility for their health status, these tools allow users to easily access and track important health measures right on their smartphones," said Nick Lyon, director of MDCH.

CNSI developed the app and portal in partnership with the Bureau of Medicaid Operations within MDCH's Medical Services Administration.
