iTriage Receives Invite to 2013 State of the Union Address
Last night during the State of the Union Address, Dr. Hudson, CEO of iTriage was among those honored attendees to attend in Mrs. Obama’s viewing box.
The White House’s recognition of iTriage serves as a reminder of the importance of iTriage’s mission: helping people make more informed healthcare decisions.
Headquartered in Denver, Colorado, iTriage is a global health care technology company founded in 2008 by two emergency medicine physicians with the mission to answer two of the most critical questions when Americans make healthcare decisions: “What could be wrong?” and “Where can I go for treatment?”
iTriage offers a mobile and web application Symptom-to-Provider™ that empowers consumers to make better health care decisions. Millions of consumers around the globe have downloaded the free iTriage mobile app on their iPhone and Android devices to help get their health questions answered and connect to the right health care treatment, from FastMed Urgent Care centers to the hospital to specialists in medicine.
U.S. Chief Technology Officer, Todd Park visited iTriage back in May of 2012. He had this to day about iTriage and patients making informed health care decisions, “You’re empowering people to take control of their health and you’re saving lives. What you’re doing is incredibly important.” U.S. Senator Michael Bennet visited later in the year and said, “Economic growth is decoupled from wage growth, and families are struggling to pay increasingly high costs for education and healthcare. That’s why I’m so interested in iTriage: we’ve got to educate people. People need to educate themselves.”
FastMed Urgent Care is also committed to educating patients so they can make informed health care decisions. Patients that make informed decisions on their health will save on both the cost of their health care and the time in waiting to receive care.
