Navy Rolls Out Enterprise-Wide Healthcare Resource App

The U.S. Navy‘s medical organization has released a mobile application designed to offer  sailors, marines and their families information about the locations of military treatment facilities and available healthcare services.

The app is designed to also help users access Defense Department hotlines, the RelayHealth patient-doctor communications service and links to Navy Medicine’s social media and health resources, the military branch said Monday.

Navy Medicine aims to install new features into the enterprise-wide app during 2017.

“Every day we leverage mobile technology for a greater portion of the things we need and want to do; our Sailors, Marines and their families deserve this same level of convenience from Navy Medicine,” said Mark Beckner, chief digital officer of the Navy’s Bureau of Medicine and Surgery.

The app is available on the Apple App and Google Play stores.
