“We look forward to our partnership with Healthagen as we continue to invest in people, facilities, equipment and technology so that we may best care for the person in each patient,” said Chris Lang, CEO of Cass Regional. “The iTriage application enhances our ability to reach out and inform potential patients and visitors of the services Cass Regional provides,” he said.
Built by emergency room physicians, iTriage aggregates healthcare information in a structured and actionable way, and provides unrestricted access to important medical information. As the healthcare landscape changes, iTriage continues to provide technology to empower healthcare consumers. With iTriage, west central Missouri communities will be able to connect with Cass Regional Medical Center to find contact information, facility mapping, quality reports and the capabilities of its general surgery clinic and its six family practice clinics.
“Cass Regional Medical Center’s decision to partner with iTriage speaks directly to their belief in providing cutting edge medical care through advanced technology.
