Irvine-based Monarch HealthCare has designed a mobile application to make healthcare more accessible in Southern California. The Monarch CareFinder app enables users to find a healthcare facility, including its address, directions, phone number, hours of operation and available services .

Through the app, users can locate urgent care centers, labs and radiology centers close to their home or work. After finding an ideal center, they can create a Favorites list to keep their top choices in one place.

“We are providing a valuable tool to help busy people get the healthcare resources they need in a way that is most convenient for them,” said CEO Bart Asner.

The app is also equipped with a free subscription to Monarch’s healthcare messaging service, so users can access and improve their care from their phones.

“The new Monarch CareFinder is part of Monarch’s commitment to making healthcare more accessible,” said Asner.   

Earlier this month, Monarch Healthcare was selected to participate in the new Pioneer ACO (Accountable Care Organization) Model by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) Innovation Center. The federal pilot program is designed to reduce Medicare costs for health care.
