Alberta Network for Health Information eXchange (ANHIX) members to be briefed on U.S. mobile advancements in health care.
Denver, CO (PRWEB) April 30, 2012
While more Canadian hospitals consider posting live ER Wait Times on websites and mobile applications, the length of those times and how to improve health care delivery in Canada are becoming hot political topics. To foster ideas of collaboration on improvement, Jonathan White, iTriage V.P. of Business Development will speak to ANHIX members during their annual Spring Symposium in Edmonton, Alberta about mobile solutions being offered in the United States and how those may apply within a single payer health system.
As the first American company to roll out ER Wait Times on a mobile device, iTriage brings a wealth of knowledge to Canadian health care providers and government officials about transparency around those wait indicators. Additionally, iTriage has been helping more than six million people who have downloaded the app to determine the most appropriate level of care and to become more educated on their symptoms, medical conditions, treatment and medications.
“iTriage has disrupted health care delivery in the United States, by empowering individuals with medical information so that they can take a greater role in their own health,” explained Jonathan White. “We believe that delivery of trusted, on-the-go, medical information can impact health care costs around the globe as people move from passenger to the driver's seat of their health."
