U of Kansas Health System partners with Hurt! mobile app


Topeka-based University of Kansas Health System has partnered with the Hurt! orthopedic mobile application to offer patients after-hours orthopedic care. 

With the Hurt! application, patients can send photos, videos and messages to orthopedic specialists 24/7 and receive an instant response, according to a June 12 press release from the American Hospital Association.

Orthopedists can then recommend follow-up care with network partners or a visit to the emergency room in urgent situations. 

The app can accommodate injuries from tears or pops in the shoulder; elbow or wrist injuries that occur during regular daily movement; and pain and swelling around the knee or ankle after twisting, stepping wrong or falling.
