Chillicothe, OH and Denver, CO (PRWEB) June 24, 2012
Adena Health System is now accessible on Smartphones and other mobile devices. Recognizing that now more than ever, patients are turning to their mobile devices to find location, contact and healthcare information, Adena has launched a mobile web site with direct and easy-to-navigate information.
“By simply, going to http://www.adena.org on any Internet-capable Smartphone or mobile device, patients will be taken to Adena´s new mobile web site,” said Dave Trudell, Adena´s System Director of Marketing and Communications. “As people turn to their mobile devices for information, Adena will be there to connect with patients when they have a medical need.”
In addition, patients can learn more about specific medical conditions and Adena providers by using iTriage® — the free healthcare app offers users quick access to this information. The app provides users with hospital details such as: services provided, specialties, and turn-by-turn directions using GPS capabilities. Other services include:
- Research medical symptoms and conditions;
- Learn about possible causes and treatment options;
- Get medication refill and appointment reminders added to personal calendars; and
- Access a nationwide database of every medical provider in the country.
“When healthcare providers like Adena put useful medical information into the palm of their patient´s hands with iTriage, consumers are empowered to make informed decisions about where they will seek care for their medical condition,” said Dr. Peter Hudson, co-founder of iTriage.
iTriage is available as a free download from app stores for iPhone® and Android mobile devices, and is accessible from any Internet-enabled device.
