New technology is now helping doctors get the most out of those moments. Here in the Ozarks, care providers use electronic pads in various clinical uses and the creation of the smart phone has opened up a world of opportunity for patients to take responsibility for their own health. MyMercy, our electronic patient portal into their own medical records, and the mobile version, already has 177,000 users. This increases access to health care and helps empower patients more.
