Online appointment setting provides a confidential service when scheduling an appointment over the phone isn’t ideal
Auburn, KY and Denver, CO (PRWEB) February 16, 2012
Auburn Community Health Clinic today announced a new online appointment registration feature through a partnership with iTriage® – a free mobile healthcare app that lets patients access medical information online and from their smartphones.
Now more than ever, patients want online access to medical providers, and a recent survey from Intuit Health reported that 81% of patients want to schedule appointments online. The appointment request feature allows patients to quickly request an appointment at Auburn Community Health Clinic directly from their computer or mobile device. This new feature increases efficiency and streamlines the appointment process. iTriage also lets users do the following:
- Research medical symptoms
- Learn about possible causes and treatment options
- Obtain medication information for treatment of a specific condition
- Find Auburn Community Health Clinic information like hours, services provided, and turn-by-turn directions
“As more patients turn to online devices to access and manage medical information, it’s crucial to provide them with the resources to insure healthcare access is convenient and reliable,” said Michelle Mitchell, Director of Business Development. “Online appointment setting provides a confidential service when scheduling an appointment over the phone isn’t ideal.”
iTriage can be accessed from any Internet-enabled device at http://www.iTriageHealth.com and is also available as a free download for iPhone® and Android™ mobile phones through app stores.
