Waikato trialling Emergency Q as ED fills up

Waikato Hospital is running a six-month trial of the award-winning Emergency Q app, which has reduced emergency department patient volumes at Auckland's North Shore Hospital by 12 per cent.

Inspired by the ability to track the progress of a pizza order by developer Morris Pita, the app shows patients where the closest emergency department is and how long they will expect to wait, along with alternatives such as general practices and urgent care clinics.
