Roper St. Francis Healthcare goes mobile with iTriage
CHARLESTON, S.C. (May 09, 2012) — The substantial growth in Smartphone use has led Roper St. Francis Healthcare (RSFH) to expand its services in the mobile arena by partnering with iTriage®, a free healthcare application.
Developed by doctors, iTriage combines health information with GPS and mapping technology to help users find care whether they are traveling, at work or close to home. iTriage also gives users quick and easy access to medical information and the ability to schedule appointments from their phone.
“Partnering with iTriage allows Roper St. Francis to better serve our community by providing timely access to health resources,” said Krista Robertson, interactive marketing manager at RSFH. “Patients have immediate access to symptoms, diseases and provider information — all from their Smartphone.”
This mobile technology brings immediate healthcare information to residents and visitors in the tri-county area and surrounding communities. Mobile users of iTriage can:
- Search medical symptoms
- Read about possible causes and treatment plans
- Find information on RSFH services, hours of facility operations and directions to facilities
- Check into RSFH emergency rooms before actual arrival
