Government leaders learn how iTriage integrates community health-data to help Americans select the most appropriate point of care from its mobile applications

Lakewood, CO (PRWEB) June 2, 2010 -- Healthagen® today announced its iTriage® presentation at The Community Health Data Forum: Harnessing the Power of Information to Improve Health, hosted by Institute of Medicine (IOM) and the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS). As one of 15 participating technology companies invited to the National Academy of the Sciences in Washington DC for today's public forum, Healthagen will help community leaders understand how the community health-data integrates into the iTriage mobile health application to expand, improve and empower citizens to make informed healthcare decisions.

From the 2009 launch of the iTriage healthcare application for the iPhone®, Healthagen has seized opportunities to meet the growing, mobile, healthcare demands of Americans. Touted by HisTalkMobile healthcare blog as the “most promising platform for assisting and enhancing the consumer-oriented healthcare movement” iTriage quickly expanded its feature-rich application to meet the needs of consumers and medical providers.

Today, the company is a leader in healthcare consumer engagement and blazes the trail in symptom-to-provider technology and mobile ER Wait Times. Supplying free mobile guidance for the most appropriate level of care leads to lower healthcare costs and iTriage combines this extensive provider information with a wealth of consumer knowledge on medical symptoms, diseases and medical procedures, which is designed to help individuals become more informed healthcare consumers.

“Increasingly, we see a growing need for Americans to become more educated about their healthcare provider options, otherwise, the spike in new healthcare participants will restrict access in our newly-reformed healthcare system,” explained Peter Hudson, M.D., CEO of Healthagen. “Making federally-qualified health centers accessible is critical to our entire population. So, Healthagen has integrated this government data into the iTriage mobile applications to do our part by helping solve some of these potential healthcare issues.”

With a diversified array of mobile platform availability, Healthagen achieves its iTriage mission of providing comprehensive healthcare information to empower all Americans on applications for iPhone, iPod touch®, iPad™, Android™ smartphones and all other Web-enabled devices at www.iTriageHealth.com. iTriage will also soon be available as a BlackBerry® and Palm® application.
