Sunflower Prompt Care of Topeka today announced a new partnership with Healthagen® to put medical and facility information into the hands of smartphone users with iTriage®. Smartphone users can download iTriage at no cost from the app stores or search iTriageHealth.com from any Internet-enabled device to access healthcare information.
With the introduction of this premier level of service, Sunflower Prompt Care becomes the first urgent care clinic in Kansas to utilize this interactive technology, which enables consumers to:
• Search medical symptoms;
• Learn about the possible causes;
• Find appropriate locations for treatment;
• Connect with personal health records from their iPhone®.
“Expanding our investment in technology, especially where patient communication is involved is top priority for Sunflower Prompt Care,” explained Matt Burkdoll, office manager of Sunflower Prompt Care. “The iTriage application enhances our ability to communicate with existing patients and reach out to new ones who utilize mobile devices as their primary communication tool.”
Built by emergency room physicians, iTriage aggregates healthcare information in a structured and actionable way, and provides unrestricted access to important medical information. As the healthcare landscape changes, iTriage continues to provide technology to empower healthcare consumers. With this addition, residents of Topeka and nearby communities now have on-the-go access to Sunflower Prompt Care details like contact information, new expanded hours, mapping, quality reports and facility capabilities.
“Sunflower Prompt Care’s decision to partner with iTriage speaks directly to their belief in providing cutting edge medical care through advanced technology. We look forward to a truly flourishing partnership with this innovative urgent care clinic as more Americans adopt smartphones as their frontline communication tool,” said Peter Hudson, M.D., CEO, Healthagen, developer of iTriage.
