What is ERgent?
ERgent is an app that uses your GPS location and combines it with our “Door to Doctor” algorithm to help you locate the hospital with not only the shortest average wait time to see a physician, but also the quality of care and hospital’s specialties. No one wants to sit in an emergency department waiting room, especially when they’re in the middle of their own emergency. ERgent locates hospitals with the best average wait times and factors in Medicare-reported scores in pain control, chest pain symptoms, and neurologic symptoms. ERgent works anywhere in the United States, so whether you’re at home, work, or on vacation, you can get the information you need. At ERgent, our philosophy is simple: Emergencies Shouldn’t Wait.
Here’s how ERgent works: You can use ERgent’s recommendation – our “Door to Doctor” algorithm uses your GPS location to offer the hospital with a combination of the best average wait time and highest quality of care. We give you a few others in the area, too, just so you can see all the options. You can use ERgent’s option for symptoms: Head – Have a bad headache that you want to get checked out? These emergency departments have the highest scores in neurologic examinations in your area. Pain – Sore or think you need an x-ray? These emergency departments have the highest scores in pain control in your area. Heart – Feeling unwell? These emergency departments have the highest scores in cardiac care in your area. You can use Search By Location – Looking for a hospital in a different location than where you are currently? Our search option allows you to type in any address in the United States with ERgent's algorithm.
Our main goal at ERgent is to make sure that you never have to worry about where you can get medical care, no matter where you are in the United States. At ERgent, we believe your health is important and your time is valuable, so our philosophy is simple: Emergencies Shouldn’t Wait.
