Triage.me was conceived at the Milwaukee BuildHealth Hack-a-thon in response to a challenge from Aurora Health Care. That challenge: "Reduce the number of ED visits for non-emergent care in Milwaukee County."
Today, Triage.me uses either text messaging or a web portal to help patients find the nearest available community clinic or Federally Qualified Health Center (FQHC).
We provide public transportation directions and can notify the patient’s clinic or case manager that a specific person is looking for help.
Tailored to patients with Medicaid and those without insurance, Triage.me looks to improve access to care for the underserved while lowering costs by reinforcing the use of appropriate, primary care.
