Yesterday the Agency for Health Care Administration (AHCA) released its mobile app allowing consumers the ability to obtain medical provider location & driving directions. AHCA says the following about the app:
“I am excited the Agency is able to make this mobile technology available,” said Secretary Liz Dudek. “The mobile facility locator will provide residents, consumers and tourists with easy access to facility information and driving directions for Florida health care facilities.”
Consumers can search for a facility by license type, county, city, proximity distance or a combination of those options. After a facility has been selected, the mobile app will provide directions using the same directions feature on FloridaHealthFinder.gov or enter the facility address into the phone’s independent navigation application.
The app also allows the consumer to learn what type of beds and capacity the facility offers, along with the names of the facility administrator and owner. From the app, the user can link directly to the facility’s specific website, if available, to learn more. This additional resource can assist consumers in finding health care facilities that are nearby to them and fit their needs.
