CTMC Offers Cutting-Edge Ways To Stay Connected With New Mobile Phone App And Social Media Sites
SAN MARCOS, TX – Staying connected with Central Texas Medical Center (CTMC) is now easier than ever before with the new, free mobile phone application, MyCTMC. CTMC is the first hospital in Hays County to offer a fully interactive mobile phone application that allows users to reach their physician in an instant, view events at CTMC, follow the latest CTMC news and more. MyCTMC is now available for iPhone users to download in the App Store and will be available for other smartphone users this summer.
“We are thrilled to offer MyCTMC as an innovative way to share information with our patients,” said Clay DeStefano, CTMC Administrative Director of PR and Marketing. “MyCTMC gives patients the latest information about their physician, services, news and more while on-the-go.”
MyCTMC allows users to learn more about the care and services offered at CTMC, view visitation hours, find their way around CTMC with a map, directly call departments with one touch of the phone number, find a physician by specialty or view a list of all physicians, contact a physician with one touch of the phone number, view upcoming events at CTMC and provides a quick and direct connection to our social media sites.
In addition to MyCTMC’s launch, CTMC has expanded its social media presence with a YouTube channel, The Women’s Council of CTMC Foundation Facebook page and an expanded partnership with Caring Bridge to provide easier access for our patients to create a private Caring Bridge page. CTMC officially launched its Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn pages in September 2010.
Mobile apps and social media are just part of the technology CTMC uses to improve patient access and quality of care. In August 2010, CTMC joined the elite ranks of 5% of hospitals in the United States with the launch of Computerized Prescriber Order Entry (CPOE). CPOE is a fully integrated electronic medical records system.
