A Delaware health system has customized an Amazon Alexa mHealth app to give patients personalized care management information at home.

Wilmington-based ChristianaCare announced this week that the Home Care Coach mHealth app will be prescribed for home care patients to use on the voice-enabled digital assistant platform. The app was designed at ChristianaCare’s Health & Technology Innovation Center.

“We have a bold vision of the future: All care that can be digital will be digital, and all care that can be done in the home or in the community will be done in the home or in the community,” Janice Nevin, MD, MPH, CEO of the three-hospital health system, said in a press release. “Engaging patients digitally is more important than ever right now, as it will help them reach their health goals, improve their experience, and shape the future of health care as we know it.”
