New mobile app makes it easier to connect with Spira Care

Patients can use the app to:
- Log in via facial recognition and touch ID
- Access health information like lab or test results from a Spira Care appointment
- Send and receive secure messages from the Care Team
- View upcoming appointments
- Join virtual appointments
Members enrolled in plans with Spira Care can get started with the app in three simple steps.
