LRGHealthcare recently launched a redesigned website, including a mobile version.
Visitors to lrgh.org will find easy access to provider information, program and services and health resources and the new mobile version offers a simple-to-use interface, providing streamlined access to information such as:
Convenience Care and Emergency Services;
Search options for physicians, providers and specialists by name, location or specialty;
Quick access to directions, parking and hours of operation for all of LRGHealthcare’s facilities.
"LRGHealthcare is continuously looking for ways to leverage technology to improve the quality and experience for our patients and visitors,” said Communications and Program Development Manager Patricia Rice. “The addition of customized, smart phone web technology brings access to the next level of convenience.”
LRGH mobile offers more easily viewed content without having to zoom and scroll horizontally. Users logging in with a smart phone or other mobile device will be automatically directed to the mobile version, and there is an option to access the full website at any time.
The use of mobile technology is not new to LRGHealthcare. For the past few months, smart phone communication systems have been utilized at Franklin Regional Hospital and Lakes Region General Hospital to coordinate in-patient care.
The Voalté clinical software system allows nurses, physicians and allied staff to communicate directly and securely via iPhones through alarms, voice and text messaging. The system has already proven to improve healthcare team communications, while ensuring patient safety and satisfaction.
LRGHealthcare is also immersed in the world of Social Media—Facebook, Twitter and YouTube are used daily to communicate news about the healthcare network. Community education programs, news about physicians and providers joining the network and the latest information about advanced medical technology is available through this widely used medium.
“It is important to keep the community in the know, and social media is a great way for us to keep in touch with patients and their families,’ stated Rice. “The response has been great. It is another opportunity to build awareness, while exchanging valuable information. We encourage people to ‘like us’ on Facebook, 'follow us' on Twitter and check out our YouTube channel.”
