MSDC Launches Healthy Physician App

Nov 1, 2021, 08:27 AM by MSDC Staff
The new app brings wellbeing resources directly to physicians to use at their own schedule and without going through their employer.

On Friday, MSDC announced the launch of the newest wellness tool for DC area physicians - the Healthy Physician app. The app is available now in the App Store for Apple devices AND Google Play Store for Android devices.

The Healthy Physician app brings wellness, moral injury, and community resources for physicians directly to them. The app is health system agnostic so physicians do not need to worry that their interactions and data are being tracked by their employer. Instead, the content and resources are moderated by their community for them. The app was designed in partnership with Results Direct and through a grant from the Institute for Technology in Health Care.

The app has features that allow physicians to connect with resources and each other when needed. Users can:

  • Engage more meaningfully during wellness events (both in person and virtual)
  • Watch wellness videos from MSDC and other sources
  • Read wellness articles from MSDC and other sources
  • Receive a brief wellness thought daily via push notification
  • Connect with other physicians who you met or spoke with at an event (both in person and virtually)
  • Arrange an appointment with a wellness professional through MSDC (Active members receive two free consultations)
  • Connect with the Physician Health Program in case of addiction or behavioral health concerns.
