Life saving application for paramedics
As paramedics we have found a massive gap in communication from the field of Pre-hospital medicine to the Emergency Department. We have created a suite of mobile apps that are used by first responders to alert the receiving hospital of the incoming patient. By doing this the Emergency Physicians are able to see exactly what the paramedics are looking at. Images of EKG's and registration info are some examples of the data able to be sent. This allows the hsopital to prepare much more thoroughly to provide better patient care. Inaccuracies with registration will be minimized with the secure transmission of patient demographics. The First Responders capture images by using a free app and are able to securely send to an iPad mounted at the receiving facility. The process takes approx 8-10 seconds from opening the app to viewing the image at the ED.
