Oakwood Medical Avatar Brings Personalized Health Info to Mobile Devices
Date:9/19/2013

Dearborn, Michigan (PRWEB) September 19, 2013

It just became a lot easier to manage 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.
