DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) – Premier Health has launched a new online tool to allow patients to alert emergency center staff of their pending arrival, subsequently allowing medical professionals to prepare ahead of time. Additionally, the new tool allows patients to disclose their symptoms and medical concerns before walking into a facility.
Patients can use the Premier Health website to notify emergency personnel of their arrival by clicking the ‘On My Way’ tab. They can then select the emergency center they intend to visit, which will allow users to see the anticipated wait time and input current medications and other helpful data.
If a patient has a MyChart account, signing in before selecting an emergency center will extract the patient’s information to send to healthcare providers.
While ‘On My Way’ provides notification that a patient is on the way, it does not hold a spot in line. The order in which emergency patients are seen is based on the severity of their injury or illness.
