Navy Medicine launches patient engagement app

Navy Medicine has rolled out a new mobile app in an effort to help U.S. Navy, Marine Corps, veterans and their families access care.

The Navy Medicine app, available on both the Apple App Store and the Google Play store, lists military treatment facility locations, U.S. Department of Defense hotlines and links to health resources. It also connects users to RelayHealth, which provides patient engagement and interoperable secure messaging solutions.

"We will continue to grow the app based on the needs and wants of our Sailors, Marines and their families," said Mark Beckner, chief digital officer of the U.S. Navy Bureau of Medicine and Surgery. "Our goal is to improve the overall Navy Medicine experience and improve convenience for our patients through technology."
