Fast Track Urgent Care Launches Early Check-In on iTriage App
“Check-In Now” lets patients quickly and conveniently alert staff of their impending arrival from smart phones
Tampa, FL and Denver, CO (PRWEB) June 11, 2012
Fast Track Urgent Care has collaborated with iTriage® — a free consumer healthcare app that lets smartphone and web users access medical information, obtain directions, and even pre-register for a visit, all from the palm of their hand.
When patients use the iTriage application to locate Fast Track Urgent Care´s South Tampa or Westchase locations, they have the option to click the “Check-In Now” button and provide details like name, phone number, symptoms, and any other information to help staff prepare in advance for their arrival.
“Fast Track Urgent Care recognizes the importance of providing the community with the resources to access prompt, convenient care when unexpected illnesses and injuries occur,” said medical director Matthew Dowdy, M.D. “Our partnership with iTriage lets patients coordinate their arrival with us and reduces their wait time.”
Created by two ER doctors, iTriage also lets mobile and web users search symptoms, diseases, procedures, and obtain directions to nearby medical facilities from any location. iTriage is available as a free download from app stores for iPhone® and Android mobile devices, and is accessible from any Internet-enabled device at http://www.iTriageHealth.com.
