TPP’s SystmOnline app was released yesterday onto the iTunes app store following approval by Apple. The app, available currently for the iOS platform, offers patients much of the same functionality as the SystmOnline website, but optimised for smartphones.
The patient can log in, with a username and password provided by their practice, and view their own electronic record on the app. Patients can also order repeat prescriptions, book and cancel appointments and send communications back to their GP, all via the app. A unique feature of the app also uses Apple maps to show the patient a map and directions to their registered surgery.
