How does moblMD work?
Share commonly used hospital numbers directly to clinician devices
Distribute the latest hospital and service-line policies
Enable inpatient bedside phone dialing without the operator
Save clinicians time by reducing calls to the hospital operator
In cooperation with the hospital leadership, moblMD was rolled out as a communication tool within UChicago Medicine. During the COVID-19 pandemic it was used to distribute hospital phone numbers and policies to over 1500 employees.
Our manuscript was published in JMIR mHealth in January 2021.
moblMD was developed by Emeka C. Anyanwu during his cardiology fellowship at UChicago Medicine. Tired of calling the hospital operator or looking for numbers on whiteboards and sticky notes, moblMD was developed to share phone numbers and hospital policies from a central easy-to-update repository. As a mobile app, it helps hospital employees find the latest hospital info without drudging through emails or the intranet.
