AfterOurs Urgent Care today announced a new partnership with Healthagen® to provide medical and facility information on iTriage® – a free, consumer smartphone application for iPhone®, iPod touch®, Android™ and Palm® users, and also for all Web-enabled devices at iTriageHealth.com.
With the introduction of this premier level of service, AfterOurs Urgent Care joins a growing number of medical providers in New Jersey and throughout the United States utilizing this interactive mobile technology to provide their services, specialties, recognitions and hours of operation. The app also allows users to:
• Search medical symptoms
• Learn about possible causes
• Find appropriate locations for treatment
“AfterOurs Urgent Care’s partnership with iTriage gives residents and visitors in our community the information they need to make fast, informed decisions when minor illnesses and injuries occur,” said Christopher Rehm, President, AfterOurs Urgent Care. “By providing detailed information about our urgent care on iTriage, we further connect with our mobile patients needing healthcare information.”
Built by emergency room physicians, iTriage aggregates healthcare information in a structured and actionable way, and closes the information gap between doctors and patients. As the healthcare landscape changes, iTriage continues to provide technology to empower healthcare consumers.
“Competition for the U.S. mobile smartphone user is heating up fast in New Jersey and AfterOurs Urgent Care’s decision to partner with iTriage makes sense for this level of care,” said Peter Hudson, M.D., CEO, Healthagen. “We look forward to helping mobile patients find great urgent cares across the country with iTriage and help empower patients with better access to healthcare information.”
