iTriage® announced today the addition of UK A&E department listings within its free consumer mobile healthcare application. This addition enables iTriage users in the UK to use the app’s Symptom-to-Provider pathway to access nearby A&Es (presently labeled "Emergency Departments").
iTriage's ground-breaking Symptom-to-Provider pathway will offer iTriage users a way to answer the two most common heath care questions:
- What could be wrong?
- Where should I go for treatment?
iTriage users will now have access to 275 hospital A&E listings in England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland, all with mapping. In the future, iTriage has expansion plans for additional UK A&E listings, as well as other health care provider facility listings around the world.
iTriage has been adopted enthusiastically by users in the UK and globally for its “always with you and on-demand” symptom checking. Now, users will have the added benefit of being able to connect with UK A&Es.
