Tampa, Fla. (PRWEB) January 04, 2013
Fast Track Urgent Care today announced the new iTriage mobile check-in integration for its Carrollwood location, its third urgent care facility in the Tampa area, including its Westchase and South Tampa sites. In response to the growing statistics on mobile health information access, as well as the soaring number of smartphone users, the new iTriage integration launched in December creating a one-stop, consumer healthcare experience (app and website) that lets patients quickly and easily search for information about a medical condition, find nearby facilities, and check-in for a visit at a Fast Track Urgent Care prior to arrival.
“Consumers want more control and convenience when accessing healthcare services, especially when they are in a location they’re not immediately familiar with,” said Matthew Dowdy, M.D. “Fast Track Urgent Care is proud to provide the iTriage resources and technology to the members of and visitors to our community when they have a medical need.”
The iTriage app lets patients instantly connect with Fast Track Urgent Care and access clinic details including hours, services provided and directions. In addition, patients can use iTriage to check in prior to arrival, alerting staff of their impending visit.
iTriage also provides users with information about:
- Diseases and medical conditions
- Procedures and treatment options
- Medication information
- A nationwide database of every medical provider
iTriage is available as a free download for iPhone®, iPad® and Android™ devices, and is accessible from any Internet-enabled device at http://www.iTriageHealth.com.
