JOINT BASE SAN ANTONIO – RANDOLPH, Texas  — Two free mobile applications produced by the Center of Excellence for Medical Multimedia are now available for Airmen and all military health system beneficiaries.

The CEMM released two mobile apps in 2013, the CEMM Virtual Medical Center app and a pregnancy app called “My Pregnancy A to Z Journal.” The apps are available for free download from the iTunes store as well as the Android Market.

“These applications were built to provide the ease and speed of information to patients so they can have these resources at their fingertips,” said Lt. Col. Constance Smith, CEMM director. 

The CEMM Virtual Medical Center app includes three main elements: a Military Treatment Facility locator, a Tricare Plan finder and a section on patient education. 

Within the patient education section, app users can look up immunization information, see lists of common health questions, view animations of medical terms or diseases, access an extensive CEMM library and even list and track their own prescriptions.

“The CEMM VMC app features a medication reminder system; this is a valuable tool especially for patients who have difficulties remembering to take their medication,” said Smith. “Patients can input what medication they are taking and what time they need to take the medication, and the mobile app can remind them when they need to take it.”

The pregnancy app includes a variety of features, including a tool for uploading and sharing photos or images such as ultrasounds, a mobile journal, an events log, a health statistics tracker, and more. The app can also be programmed to push notifications to expectant mothers depending on their stage of pregnancy. 

To find and download the CEMM VMC app and the “My Pregnancy A to Z Journal” app, Airmen can visit the CEMM library (http://www.cemmlibrary.org/) and click on the “Mobile Apps” tab on the left.
