Scarborough and Rouge Hospital announced that its three emergency departments are now using the Dash MD app to provide patients and their families with information about the EDs, as well as follow-up information and instructions to improve post-discharge care.
Dash MD has a number of features that can help patients during and after their ED visit, including:
- Information about the hospital (i.e., what to expect while in the ED, services available onsite, and other hospital FAQs);
- Links to supplementary care providers in the community, such as pharmacies, physiotherapists, and family health teams;
- Medication, task, and appointment reminders; and,
- A survey link to provide real-time feedback.
“Implementing the Dash MD app builds on our culture of continuous improvement, innovation, and delivering the very best patient experience within the EDs,” said Nancy Veloso, patient care director of the Medicine and Emergency programs at Scarborough and Rouge Hospital.
