Dermatologists are now offering their patient an innovative mobile app to improve patient care and enhance the physician-patient relationship.
The mobile app delivers patient education content that helps patients prepare for their appointment, and have easy access to tools to help them to manage their care.
The mobile app for patient education delivers over 200 in-depth skin care resources including interactive “learning modules” that help patients master key issues regarding their condition or treatment. The patient education content is authored by the dermatologist, or provided by trusted authorities, such as the National Institutes of Health (NIH), Centers of Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the American Academy of Dermatology (AAD), and disease advocacy organizations, such as the National Eczema Association.
For instance, a patient of Dr. Roger Ceilley may download the app to his or her own mobile device for convenient access to practice information (driving directions, insurance information) and in-depth information about the reason for his office visit. If the patient is seeing Dr. Ceilley for a Mohs Surgery consultation, the patient may view a video to prepare him/her for the procedure and receive monthly skin cancer check reminders via the mobile app.
Patients may also use the mobile app to document key points discussed during their doctor’s appointment, or jot down questions for their next appointment.
Patients are directed to AppStore (iPhone) or Google Play (Android) to download the Vivacare app and then enter their doctor’s code to view personalized doctor-recommended resources relevant to their care.
