Denver, CO (PRWEB) April 24, 2012
OnPoint Urgent Care today announced that they have collaborated with iTriage® – a free consumer-based health care application that lets smartphone and Web users access health information, obtain directions to their facilities, and even pre-register for a visit.
When patients use the iTriage application to locate OnPoint Urgent Care, they have the option to click the “Tell Us Your Coming” button and provide details like name, phone number, symptoms, and any other information to help staff prepare for their arrival.
“OnPoint Urgent Care is committed to providing the community with the resources to access prompt, convenient medical care when unexpected illness and injuries occur,” said Dr. Jonathon Mihok, Medical Director OnPoint Urgent Care. “The Early Check-In feature on iTriage allows patients to coordinate their arrival with us and potentially reduce their wait time.”
iTriage also provides information about hundreds of medical symptoms, causes, treatment options and directions to nearby medical providers including OnPoint Urgent Care’s Aurora and Highlands Ranch locations. iTriage is available as a free download for iPhone® and Android™ mobile phones from app stores. Internet users can find the same information on the iTriage website at http://www.iTriageHealth.com.
