Norfolk General Hospital was approached by Purple Forge, a developer of mobile applications for hospitals, public health campaigns, and government funded health education programs, to work with them to develop an NGH app. Since mobile applications for smart phones are the way of the future, we thought we would take Purple Forge up on their offer. Even better, there was no cost to NGH.
Our application will let you know about the services offered at NGH. Details will be provided for our clinical services, including video and text-based information. There will be other basic information about NGH, as well as links to other community health care services, including physicians. Our application will let NGH ‘push’ notifications out with new information from NGH. For instance, if NGH has an influenza outbreak, those with our app will get that information pushed to them.
