Can a SQL data base update app when there is a change?

I have an app that talks to a MySQL data base. This is fine for posting queries and updating records.

Is there a mechanism that tells my application when someone else updates the data base? When that happens I want to update the display in my app with the changes. I can do this with periodic queries but it would be much better to have a push system originating from the data base.
