Through the partnership with the HURT! app, patients of The Orthopaedic Institute can now receive free virtual after-hours access to orthopaedic specialists who can provide personalized advice and guidance on what to do next. This allows patients to avoid unnecessary emergency room visits and receive the advice they need in a timely and efficient manner.
I twisted my ankle on the trails tonight and my ankle swelled up immediately. I would have gone to Urgent Care and waited 3 hours if I hadn’t used this app. They saved me a bunch of money, and time!
The HURT! app is a perfect solution for new and unexpected injuries that require immediate attention. Patients can connect with orthopaedic specialists within minutes of an injury, receive personalized care instructions and avoid prolonged discomfort or pain.
It is important to note that the HURT! app should not be used for post-op or follow-up appointments. Patients of The Orthopaedic Institute should continue following their physician’s treatment plan and schedule any necessary in-office visits accordingly.
