Patients of University Health System, San Antonio, Texas, now have access to a full-featured mobile software application that can aid communications during the covid-19 crisis.

Developed in collaboration with Gozio Health, Atlanta, the platform enables University Health to deliver real-time push notifications directly to smartphones, and gives patients immediate access to virtual triage, real-time notifications, navigation to testing and treatment locations, and more.

“During this pandemic, real-time mobile communications are essential to the health and safety of our community,” says Selene Mejia, University Health System digital marketing manager. “With this platform, we can reach patients with the resource they are consulting the most during this crisis—their smartphones. It allows us to manage our patient flow and streamline resources, and gives patients fast access to health screeners and connection to health professionals if needed.”

“We rolled out our covid-19 Fast Track solution because hospitals need dynamic, reliable mobile communications now,” says Joshua Titus, chief executive officer and founder of Gozio Health. “Leveraging our existing extensible platform, Gozio is able to turn around a mobile app that delivers push notifications, chat bots, virtual triage, access to telehealth, navigation to testing sites, and more in a matter of days. We make implementation for hospitals as easy as possible to get essential mobile communications in the hands of patients as soon as possible.”

The app can be downloaded for free by searching for ‘University Health System Go’ on the Apple App store or the Google Play store.
