Atlantic General HospitalApp Development

Mobile app for hospital wait times

How do you help a hospital reduce the stress level of patients and their families?  One way is to give them a clear idea of when they’ll be seen in the emergency room, or administered their lab tests.

Atlantic General Hospital became the first hospital in Maryland to offer a “30-minute ER promise.”  Two years later, it also became one of the first in Maryland to display hospital service wait times on its website.

Interactive communications tool

To publicize these great unique tools, we decided to help Atlantic General Hospital build on their technological advantage by developing a mobile application interactive communications tool that takes the convenience of real-time information one step further: allowing people to check the wait times for selected hospital services anywhere, anytime.

Real-time updates and communication

The phone app displays the times for emergency room, X-ray and lab services. It retrieves updates twice per minute to ensure that the information is accurate and timely. The mobile app was created in multiple platforms to be available for iPhone and Android users.

Important COVID-19 Announcement

At Mullin/Ashley, we’re very concerned about the well-being of our customers, employees, business partners and communities currently battling to control the COVID-19 (Coronavirus) threat.

Maryland Governor Larry Hogan announced that effective Monday, March 23, 2020, all non-essential businesses in the state must close their offices.  A follow-up pronouncement on March 30 instituted further “stay-at-home” orders for Maryland residents.

We are complying with these mandates.  In fact, in anticipation of the Governor’s announcements, we had already taken steps to reduce our social footprint by setting up all Mullin/Ashley employees to work from home, with no interruption in the delivery of services.

In addition, travel activities by our staff have been severely curtailed since early March.

By taking these steps, we’re committed to continuing to provide our customers with the services they need, even as we work to reduce our social footprint.

We continue to monitor the situation on a daily basis and will take additional steps to minimize the risks from the COVID-19 virus, as needed.  Thank you for your patience and understanding as we work collectively to control the Coronavirus threat.
