Intermountain Healthcare’s new GermWatch app helps physicians provide faster and more accurate diagnoses for their sick patients.
KSL is highlighting the GermWatch app as part of their Your Life, Your Health partnership with Intermountain LiVe Well®.
A KSL news story in November noted: “The app summarizes what viruses are going around certain communities on a weekly basis. When patients are tested for an infectious disease at an
Intermountain lab, those results are sent to a database and passed onto doctors through the GermWatch program. The idea is that physicians can now use this data to give patients a specific diagnosis and not give antibiotics when they’re not needed.”
