ETMC triage on smart phone
Special to The Monitor
ATHENS–ETMC Athens has expanded its presence in the growing mobile market through a partnership with iTriage®, a consumer healthcare application that gives users on-the-go access to medical information and providers.
Mobile users have quick and easy access to symptoms, diseases and hospital information.
iTriage is available as a free download through the iPhone® and Android® mobile device App Stores, and any Internet-enabled device at www.iTriageHealth.com
According to the most recent Nielsen statistics, 40 percent of mobile consumers in the U.S. now own a smart phone, with 50 percent adoption predicted by the end of 2011.
This growing trend has led ETMC Athens to reach out to mobile users in the community by providing convenient access to information about the hospital and its services.
Schumacher Group, the nation’s third largest emergency and hospital medicine management firm, is partnering with ETMC to bring iTriage to ETMC Athens and other ETMC hospitals throughout the region.
This state-of-the art technology gives East Texas residents the resources to learn more about a specific medical condition and make the most informed decision about where to seek treatment. iTriage lets users:
• research medical symptoms.
• learn about possible causes and treatment options.
• obtain medication information for treatment of a specific condition.
• find detailed ETMC information like services, specialties, hours of operation and turn-by-turn directions.
“Our partnership with iTriage allows us to provide more information about the services we offer and helps our patients make informed decisions about where to seek attention for their medical needs,” administrator of ETMC Athens Pat Wallace said.
“We are proud to offer the latest technology to our community, which reinforces our commitment to enhancing the patient experience,” Wallace added.
 

4-H Clover Kids get educated about animals
Special to The Monitor
EUSTACE–The Henderson County 4-H Clover Kids have had two field trips in the last two weeks. They went to the Tindel Farm in Eustace to get some hands on training with sheep, Boer goats, chickens of various breeds, ducks, and two breeds of heifers; one with long hair and one with short slick type hair.
They were shown how to use a comb for long hair and a brush for the short hair with the cattle and how to use a show stick in setting them up and placing their feet. They were also invited to attend the Dash for Cash Clinic in Athens on Dec. 9 to learn more and to watch the show the following day.
They are also preparing for the County Food Show coming up in January 2012 and made a trip out to the Childress Farm. Andrew Childress gave a cooking lesson starting with washing your hands, then measuring, mixing and baking a yummy Broccoli Quiche, while the Clover Kids watched with interest.
4-H is proudly supported by the United Way Fund. For more information about 4-H, contact the AgriLife Extension Office at (903) 675-6130 which is now located on the third floor of the Henderson County Court House.
