LVM Systems launched iNurseTriage.com, a web-based triage tool designed for physician offices and clinics. “We have heard from physician offices around the country,” said Mark Dwyer, Chief Operations Officer at LVM. “They have been looking for a triage solution that was did not require a large capital investment and could be accessed at their location.”
In development for nearly a year, iNurseTriage.com provides doctors’ offices with LVM’s 23 years of experience in telephone triage. Doctors’ office personnel log into iNurseTriage.com and conduct a triage encounter similar to those of a healthcare call center. A major difference however, is that with an iNurseTriage.com encounter, the nurse does not collect any personal information. Once the triage encounter is completed, the person managing the call has the choice of loading the information into the office’s electronic medical record (EMR) system or printing it and adding it to the patient’s chart.
“We designed it to be fast and simple to use,” said Brian Mortensen, iNurseTriage.com’s developer. “It provides a realistic solution for physician offices.”
iNurseTriage.com features protocols developed by Dr. Barton Schmitt (pediatrics) and Dr. David Thompson (adult), which are considered by many to be the gold standard in the industry.
The usage fee for iNurseTriage.com is $0.97 per encounter. To acquaint potential users with iNurseTriage.com, LVM is offering the first 20 encounters at no cost. When making a triage encounters purchase, users enter the code LIKEIT into the coupon box to get 20 free triage encounters.
