WakeMed’s app, created for iPhone and Android devices, enables users to find the closest WakeMed facilities and search more than 1,000 physicians, in addition to inputting personal health and insurance information and staying abreast of hospital news.
The WakeMed app is GPS enabled, providing real-time identification of the nearest WakeMed Emergency Department or facility. Turn-by-turn GPS directions are automatically generated from your current location and touch-to-call phone numbers are listed for every facility. For the convenience of patients and visitors, the app includes hospital floor plans and campus maps for easier navigation.
The Doctor Finder feature allows users to search more than 1,000 physicians representing nearly every specialty and subspecialty. Health Profile and My Insurance sub-sections offer users the ability to store physician phone numbers, medications, photo of insurance cards and other personal health information.
Emergency Department wait times for the system’s five, soon to be six, emergency departments across Wake County will be added in the near future.
