Overlake Hospital Medical Center and Providence Health & Services in Washington today announced their new partnerships with Healthagen® and its iTriage® application to give local residents on-the-go access to medical and facilities information through 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, Overlake and Providence, along with Harrison Medical Center in Bremerton, are the first healthcare providers in this region to team with Healthagen. The three organizations join a growing number of medical providers throughout the United States offering the convenience of this interactive mobile technology. With this tool, users can:

• Search medical symptoms.
• Learn about possible causes of symptoms.
• Find appropriate locations for medical treatment.
• Get access to healthcare provider specialties, recognitions, videos and social media links.

“We have the great fortune to live and work in a community surrounded by many high tech companies and very tech-savvy consumers,” said Steve Marshall, MD, medical director of Overlake’s Emergency & Trauma Center. “By providing detailed information about our hospital, urgent care and medical clinics via iTriage, we’re able to reach smartphone users who want instant access to reliable healthcare information so they can seek treatment at the most appropriate and convenient location. This application allows us to connect with patients in a way that’s most helpful to them.”

“To excel as a healthcare provider in today’s busy, mobile society, it is essential that consumers have easy access to resources and information so they can make informed medical decisions wherever they are,” said Karina Jennings, vice president, Regional Marketing and Communications for Providence Health & Services in Washington. “Our partnership with iTriage gives the residents of our community greater control over their healthcare by making access to medical information more convenient.”

Developed 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, making it one of the leading free downloadable healthcare applications in both the iTunes® Apple® store and the Android™ Marketplace.

“Competition for the U.S. mobile smartphone user is heating up fast in Washington and Overlake Hospital Medical Center’s and Providence’s decision to partner with iTriage shows they are on the leading edge of this communication trend,” said Peter Hudson, M.D., CEO, Healthagen. “We look forward to working with Overlake and Providence to provide patients with improved access to healthcare information and medical services.”
