Massachusetts General Hospital Launches iPhone App to Locate Emergency Rooms

 

FindER Connects Users to the Most Complete Database of ERs in the U.S.

 

BOSTON?Researchers at Massachusetts General Hospital?s (MGH) Emergency Medicine Network (EMNet) announced today the launch of EMNet findER?, a free iPhone application designed to help users locate the closest emergency room to their current location, as well as provide directions and additional information with a touch of the screen. FindER uses the iPhone?s global positioning system to quickly direct patients to emergency rooms anywhere within the United States.

 

?FindER is designed to provide key information to people experiencing health emergencies,? says Carlos A. Camargo MD, of MGH?s Department of Emergency Medicine and EMNet director. ?FindER uses information from EMNet?s own database of emergency departments, which is the most complete and accurate in the nation.?

 

Along with directions and general information, findER is designed for quick phone calls to both the care-center itself and in cases where necessary, 911 emergency services.

 

?EMNet researchers maintain a database of nearly 5,000 emergency rooms in the United States. Unlike a simple Google search where the results may include many emergency centers that have closed or moved, or even veterinary hospitals, findER?s results are based on an aggregation of emergency room listings from multiple sources that have been confirmed by researchers at EMNet,? says Camargo. ?FindER is designed to help patients get to emergency rooms in the shortest amount of time.?

 

FindER is ideal for travelers, especially those suffering chronic medical conditions, or those traveling with friends or relatives with health problems. FindERis available now as a free download in the iTunes app store. Simply click this link or search "EMNet findER," to download. For a short demonstration video, users can visit YouTube.

Thanks for posting this!

 

Just as info - the iTunes store said that there was nothing called FindER when I did a search. I found it only by typing EMNet findER. I have the app - looks great - and I hope I never need it again!
