OCH Regional Medical Center recently released an app to make access to the Medical Center’s information more accessible to users. The app was created by faculty from the information technology service (ITS) department at OCH.
“When you look at businesses today, everything is going mobile, so we felt that an app would be a great way to connect with the community and our patients by giving them easy, quick access to our services,” said OCH ITS Director/CITO Chamath Wijewardane. “We’re proud to be one of the few smaller, rural hospitals to jump out there and make this happen,” added Wijewardane.
The app provides a wealth of knowledge for the users at a touch of a button such as, clinics, physicians, services, contact information, and even the hospital cafeteria menu.
“The app is beneficial for not just patients, but also visitors and caregivers who may need additional information such as wayfinding or clinic hours,” said OCH ITS Senior Interface Programmer Mike Kerr, who was instrumental in the app’s development.
To download the app, go to the Apple App Store and search for OCH Regional Medical Center.
