Sturgeon Bay, WI (PRWEB) November 19, 2012
In response to the growing number of smartphone users, Ministry Door County Medical Center has partnered with iTriage® – a one-stop health care app that lets consumers quickly and easily access information about symptoms, diseases, procedures and directions to nearby emergency departments.
“At Ministry Door County Medical Center, we recognize the importance of connecting with our patients when they have an immediate medical need,” said Kevin Grohskopf, chief business development officer. “Our partnership with iTriage allows us to provide a valuable resource to the members of our community by increasing access to medical care and information.”
Infinity HealthCare, the Midwest region’s premier provider of Emergency Department Management services, has brought iTriage to Ministry Door County Medical Center. An iTriage partnership with Infinity HealthCare was announced in a press release earlier this year. As a free resource to the community, iTriage lets users find critical facility information like services provided, specialties, hours and directions. iTriage also lets users do the following:
- Search medical symptoms and conditions
- Learn about possible causes and treatment options
- Get medication refill and appointment reminders added to personal calendars
- Access a nationwide database of every medical provider in the country
“iTriage gives health care facilities a way to leverage mobile devices and wireless networks to provide better care for patients, and puts actionable information into the hands of consumers, including facility mapping, so they can easily obtain treatment,” said Peter Hudson, M.D. co-founder of iTriage. “We recognize Infinity HealthCare and Ministry Door County Medical Center for their innovation in adopting mobile solutions that improve health care delivery.”
iTriage is available as a free download from app stores for iPhone® and Android™ mobile devices, and is accessible from any Internet-enabled device at http://www.iTriageHealth.com.
