Triad Group Launches Mobile App

Monarch CareFinder™ helps people find care centers using their iPhone and Android™ Devices - mobile app innovation improves access to health care

IRVINE, Calif.  – Monarch HealthCare announced today its new mobile application designed to make health care more accessible in Southern California. The new Monarch CareFinder™ app makes finding Monarch HealthCare urgent care centers, labs and radiology centers easy for anyone with an iPhone or Android™ device.

With Monarch CareFinder™, Monarch members can find the facility they need near them, their home or work. Through smart phone GPS technology, the app displays results as pushpins on a map. Users can simply tap the preferred location to view the facility name, address, phone number, hours of operation and services available. The application will provide directions and users can add the facility to their “Favorites” menu so they can find it easily the next time they need it.



Monarch CareFinder™ is ideal for people on-the-go and who rely heavily on their mobile devices for resources and information. The application also allows users to subscribe to a health care messaging service provided at no cost by Monarch HealthCare. Ultimately, the goal is to provide convenient tools that make it easier for patients to access and improve their care.



“We are providing a valuable tool to help busy people get the health care resources they need in a way that is most convenient for them,” said Bart Asner, M.D., CEO of Monarch HealthCare. “The new Monarch CareFinder™ is part of Monarch’s commitment to making health care more accessible.”  
Monarch Healthcare was recently named a Pioneer ACO model, a transformative new initiative sponsored by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) Innovation Center to create sustainable health care model that enhances the patient experience and improves outcomes.  Monarch CareFinder™ is part of Monarch’s latest innovation to modernize the health care system.
