URMC creates a website to tell you if you need to go to the emergency room

Strong Memorial Hospital has created a new website to help people decide where to get medical services.

The website is called Get Care Now and helps patients understand their symptoms or injuries. After that, he shows them where they should receive treatment apart from the emergency room. This will help hospitals as their emergency rooms begin to reach threshold.

A recent letter to the White House was sent by health agencies and schools. He explained that hospitals have become their own public health emergency. This is thanks to the fact that emergency rooms are overwhelmed while being understaffed.

URMC’s Dr Michael Kamali agreed with the letter, saying the government should work with hospitals to find a solution. According to Rochester First, Kamali explained that assistance was needed from the federal level to help make the necessary fixes.

The new Get Care Now website can help people who aren’t quite sure if they should go to the emergency room for care. They might end up waiting several hours and not even need to be there for a more minor issue. The website will also show the average wait times you can expect if you need to go to the emergency room.
