Underscoring ways in which hospitals can use mobile technology to reach patients, Schumacher Group a leading emergency medicine staffing and management firm, announced today that it will use Healthagen’s iTriage mobile healthcare platform to enable over 180 of its hospital clients to promote their services to smartphone-toting patients in need of hospital emergency services.

A proven leader in providing patient satisfaction tools and resources to emergency departments, Schumacher Group sees iTriage as an effective way to bring the latest consumer mobile technology to its hospital clients. With the iTriage mobile healthcare platform, potential patients can locate critical medical information that leads them to the closest Schumacher-staffed hospital ER or to other nearby ERs.

“With smartphone adoption predicted to hit 50 percent this year, mobile technologies are providing a new interactive channel between medical providers and patients,” said William C. “Kip” Schumacher, M.D., Chairman and CEO of Schumacher Group. “We value technologies that can make a difference in patient engagement and have committed to providing these technologies to our hospital clients as a complimentary service.”

“This is a wonderful opportunity for Baton Rouge General to connect with patients using mobile devices and yet another way to extend our brand reach to the community,” explained Bill Holman, President and CEO of Baton Rouge General. “Our Bluebonnet and Mid City ERs take great pride in their low ER Wait Times and the iTriage app provides us with another channel to increase awareness around those Wait Times.”

Designed by emergency medicine physicians, iTriage is the leading consumer healthcare mobile app that offers a complete Symptom-to-Provider™ pathway – the combination of information on symptoms, diseases, procedures, and medications with a nationwide provider database that helps patients locate the closest and most appropriate medical provider for a specific condition. iTriage can be downloaded for free on all iPhone® and all Android™ smartphones and Android tablets, and is available over any mobile or desktop web browser at iTriageHealth.com .

“When hospitals use iTriage to connect with patients at the exact point of medical need, they improve patient experience,” said Peter Hudson, M.D., CEO of Healthagen. “This strategic partnership showcases how Schumacher Group leads the way in helping emergency departments improve effective and efficient healthcare delivery for those with immediate and acute medical needs.”
