Libertyville, Ill. (PRWEB) February 21, 2013
Advocate Condell Medical Center has launched a new Emergency Room notification feature through the mobile healthcare app iTriage® enabling residents and visitors in Libertyville, Ill., to notify ER staff that they are en route to the hospital.
When a consumer uses the iTriage application to locate Advocate Condell Medical Center, they have the option to click Tell Us Youre Coming from the facility listing. From there, users can fill out details like symptoms experienced, allergies and any other information that helps staff prepare for their arrival.
Consumers are on the go 24-7 and want fast, convenient access to healthcare information and services, said Dr. William Maloney, Advocate Condells Department of Emergency Medicine Chair. The early check-in feature with iTriage offers a convenience to our patients when they have an urgent medical need, and allows our staff to begin preparing for their visit.
iTriage also provides users with information about:
- Medical symptoms
- Diseases and conditions
- Medications, procedures and treatment options
