Dash MD™ app a helpful new tool for ED patients

Patients and families now have a new tool to find useful hospital information, as well as resources and guidance on follow-up care, with the launch of the Dash MD™ app across Scarborough and Rouge Hospital’s (SRH) three Emergency departments (EDs).

Dash MD™ has a number of features that can help patients during and after their ED visit, including:

  • Information about the hospital (i.e., what to expect while in the ED, services available onsite, and other hospital FAQs);
  • Links to supplementary care providers in the community, such as pharmacies, physiotherapists, and family health teams;
  • Medication, task, and appointment reminders; and,
  • A survey link to provide real-time feedback.

“Implementing the Dash MD™ app builds on our culture of continuous improvement, innovation, and delivering the very best patient experience within the EDs,” said Nancy Veloso, Patient Care Director of the Medicine and Emergency programs at SRH.

The Dash MD™ app can be downloaded for free from the App Store or Google Play. Once the app is downloaded, search for “Scarborough and Rouge Hospital”.
