HealthAchieve has long been one the largest and most respected events in North America, becoming the preeminent gathering place for health care and business leaders.
"We are very proud to have our mobile applications showcased amongst the best mobile health care applications by the Ontario Hospital Association," said Gail Johnson, NGH Vice President of Patient Care. "This again reinforces the direction we have taken in building mobile applications for better engaging the community with the goals of promoting healthy living, lessening wait-times and helping to reduce the costs of providing health care."
The Norfolk General Hospital mobile health application provides "on the go" information, helping to create a healthier community for all. Features include: information about available care options, location of care centres, visitor information, wait-times, and support.
"The Ontario Hospital Association has been a strong supporter of firms delivering technology to improve the quality of care between hospitals and their communities," said Brian Hurley, President and CEO of Purple Forge. "We believe other hospitals would strongly benefit from the experience Norfolk has had in using mobile health apps for engaging their community."
