UMC Burn Surgeons Introduce App to Revolutionize Regional Burn Consults

With the introduction of the UMC Burn Consult mobile app, physicians and nurses across Nevada and surrounding states now have more immediate access to advice from the expertly trained burn surgeons at the UMC Lions Burn Care Center, Nevada’s only burn center.

The app allows health care providers to easily and securely transmit photos of burn injuries to UMC’s highly skilled burn surgeons within seconds to receive timely consultations.

Dr. Jay Coates, Medical Director of the UMC Lions Burn Care Center, says he and his fellow burn surgeons recognized the importance of providing other hospitals and medical offices in the region with a free and convenient tool to gather valuable treatment information from UMC’s burn specialists.

“As representatives of the only burn care center in Nevada, our team feels a responsibility to foster the development of new and innovative resources designed to improve outcomes for burn patients,” he says. “The UMC Burn Consult app will play a key role in our efforts to improve the level of burn care available across the region.”

Provided as a complimentary service to all area physicians and nurses who might treat burn patients, the HIPAA-compliant app has already played a key role in guiding health care providers to ensure their patients receive appropriate treatment for burns. The app also helps patients and family members avoid unnecessary travel if specialized care is not required to treat a burn.

UMC invites physicians and nurses to contact Burn Program Manager Mary Martinat, RN, at 702-671-1087 or mary.martinat@umcsn.com to complete a simple registration process for the app, which is available for both Apple and Android devices.

“This revolutionary app gives health care providers the opportunity to have their patients’ burn wounds assessed almost instantly by a trusted expert,” Dr. Coates says. “The UMC Lions Burn Care Center has served our community since 1969, and we look forward to continuing our commitment to meeting the unique needs of burn patients.”

In addition to Dr. Coates, UMC’s experienced team of burn surgeons includes Dr. Paul Chestovich, Dr. Terry Lewis, Dr. Nathan Ozobia and Dr. Syed Saquib.
