Paso Robles, CA, United States, 2011/04/22 - Now get current ER wait times, health and hospital info on your mobile devices.
Twin Cities Community Hospital launched a mobile application to further connect the hospital to the community and increase access to health-related information. The mobile application, powered by WorldLink, is available as a free download for iPhone™, iPad™, iTouch™, Android™ and BlackBerry™ devices.
The application allows users to access:
• ER Wait Time – launches mobile web browser to view the current ER wait time;
• Hospital map and directions;
• Call Us – a list of frequently-called hospital numbers;
• My Data – an area to list allergies, emergency contacts, important contacts, insurance information, medical history, physician contacts and medications;
• First Aid Guide;
• Health Library; and
• Physician Finder – find a physician online.
“Every day, people look for ways to conveniently manage their health care. Mobile applications provide a real-time and readily available way to access health-related information,” said Rick Lyons, Twin Cities Community Hospital chief executive officer. “We’re excited to offer this emerging technology to members of our community.”
A survey from the Pew Research Center’s Internet & American Life Project reported that 17 percent of cell-phone owners have used their phone to look up health information, with young adults aged 18-29 (29 percent) and Hispanics (25 percent) as the top users. In addition, a research2guidance report estimates that 1.4 billion people worldwide will have smartphones by 2015, and one in three people will have a health-related application on their phones.
