Morristown, N.J.-based Atlantic Health System has launched its first version of four smartphone and tablet apps the system says will allow the public to better track and maintain their health, as well as quickly access hospital information and resources.

There is a separate Be Well app for each of the Atlantic Health System hospitals: Morristown, Overlook and Newton Medical Centers and Goryeb Children’s Hospital. The apps can be downloaded from the App Store for Apple users, and the Google Play store for Android users, by searching “Be Well.” A Chilton Medical Center app is in development and will launch this summer.

The apps include several features that allow users to access resources and information, including: Atlantic Health System’s “Find a Doctor” tool; the hospital system’s extensive health encyclopedia, which includes medically-reviewed content from Truven Health Analytics and ADAM;  the locations tool which allows users to find directions to the hospital specific to the app and users can check emergency department wait times; as well as a Track Your Health tool which allows users to track their weight, blood pressure, glucose, cholesterol, mood and headaches, and document their medications.

In addition, the apps stream updates from Atlantic Health System’s social media channels, including each hospital’s Facebook, the Well Aware-Your Way blog, and the Atlantic Health System news feeds, allowing users to keep up with the latest news about the health system. The system says the apps will be continuously enhanced with more features and functions, increasing the connectivity between users, their healthcare providers and Atlantic Health System’s services.
