Mobile App for Oakwood Healthcare

Oakwood Medical Avatar brings personalized health info to mobile devices

Mobile App for Oakwood Healthcare

It just became a lot easier to track your health and connect to any health services you may require.

Oakwood Healthcare has launched a first-of-its kind mobile application that will allow users to better manage their health, be more well-informed about their medical conditions and connect with an Oakwood physician or service to help them. The Oakwood Medical Avatar app can be personalized to show a three-dimensional image of the user’s body and is now available for free download for iPads and iPhones.

“In today’s tech-savvy world, people want more information at their fingertips—no matter where they are,” said Susan Hanchett, corporate director brand strategy & market development of Oakwood Healthcare. “We see this as a great way for patients and prospective patients to connect with us and to learn about the high quality services we provide.”

The Medical Avatar is designed to help educate users about their health and find available treatments to ease their symptoms through direct links to Oakwood doctors and services. Users can become more informed about medical issues, prepare better for medical procedures and help family members adhere to discharge instructions. The free app includes short videos that illustrate about 200 common health concerns and procedures.

“I see this as an art form that we’ve created as an app to allow you to visualize your health information in the past, present and future,” said Virgil Wong, co-inventor of the app and CEO of Medical Avatar, LLC. “It’s a way to help people understand and learn about their health in an easy and visual way.”

“We’re proud to be able to partner with Oakwood Healthcare on this,” said Wong. “This tool will help Oakwood stay on the forefront of emergent medical technology and provide better services to anyone who comes to Oakwood to receive care.”

Now only available for Apple products, an android version is also under development.

CBS News Detroit highlights how we bring health to (virtual) life

CBS recently featured the launch of the Medical Avatar app for Oakwood Healthcare, a 4-hospital system in Detroit, in a radio interview and news article. This has been a work of labor and love over the past 9 months and we are excited to share it with you.

Working closely with Dave Stanis, the Director of Digital Communication, and Susan Hanchett, Corporate Director of Brand Strategy and Market Development, we created a patient-centered app that makes it easier to connect with hospital services BEFORE you get sick. Patients can select health topics they are interested in and receive messages about screenings and seminars directly relevant to those health topics.

Dave Stanis puts it best: “that [health topic] information is tied to information on doctors and services here at Oakwood to help you treat parts of the body you may be focused in on, or information on events and classes in that particular area of health concern.”
