Recently we launched a mobile app called AmericanEHR Health Alerts with a campaign aimed at spreading awareness of infectious outbreaks. The campaign has been gaining momentum with a selection on BestAdsonTV, a Bronze at the Lotus Awards, and yesterday it was selected as one of only 10 Platinum winners globally for the Graphis 2016 Advertising Annual.
The AmericanEHR Health Alerts app brings timely information on outbreaks and incidents on public health emergency topics, including: diseases, infections, natural disasters, drug recalls, travel medicine, and more. This information is pulled directly from live feeds provided by the world’s most trusted sources for public health information, including: Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC); World Health Organization (WHO); US Food and Drug Administration (FDA); and more.
It is projected that a coordinated outbreak prevention strategy can help save tens of thousands of lives annually. The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reported that by preventing infections from antibiotic-resistant germs through more efficient coordination among healthcare facilities and public health departments, as much as 80 percent of infections could be prevented in the next five years.
AmericanEHR’s Health Alerts app can not only slash the spread of these types of diseases and infections, but it provides clinicians, the public, health agencies and healthcare facilities with real time alerts and updates to stop outbreaks in their tracks. Being aware of the latest health bulletins and the symptoms to keep a watchful eye open for means lower healthcare costs, and faster, more accurate responses to health threats as they materialize.
