Local stand-alone urgent care uses iTriage to reach Mobile Smartphone users.

Provo, UT, March 14, 2010 --(PR.com)-- Riverwoods Urgent Care today announced a new partnership with Healthagen® to promote its free-standing urgent care through the iTriage® application. Users can download the iTriage application for their iPhone® and Android™ phones through the app stores, or log onto www.iTriageHealth.com from any Internet-enabled device to access healthcare information from the palm of their hand.

With the introduction of this premier level of service, Riverwoods Urgent Care is the first Utah healthcare provider to utilize this interactive technology, which enables consumers to evaluate symptoms, learn about possible causes and find appropriate locations for treatment. Additionally, Riverwoods is the first emergency center in Utah to connect with patients with such innovative technology.

“As healthcare providers we have the opportunity to provide our patients with all the resources, technology and information available to help them make informed medical decisions,” said Tracey Flamenco, Marketing Manager of Riverwoods Urgent Care. “The iTriage application allows us to provide our patients with what they need in the way that they want.”

Built by emergency room physicians, iTriage aggregates healthcare information in a structured and actionable way, and closes the information gap between doctors and patients. As the healthcare landscape changes, iTriage continues to provide technology to empower healthcare consumers. With this addition, the community now has on-the-go access to valuable Riverwoods Urgent Care details like contact information, mapping, quality reports and facility capabilities.

“Riverwoods Urgent Care’s decision to partner with iTriage speaks directly to their belief in providing cutting edge medical care through advanced technology. We look forward to a truly flourishing partnership with this stand-alone urgent care center as more American’s adopt smartphones as their frontline communication tool,” said Peter Hudson, M.D., CEO, Healthagen, developer of iTriage.
