"Preliminary results show that every stage of the patient journey is faster when Pulsara is used."
Teams at the Florey Institute of Neuroscience and Mental Health in Victoria, Australia are setting new care standards for patients suffering suspected stroke or STEMI.
As part of their Pre-Hospital Real-time cOMmunication using Pulsara Technology (PROMPT) Project, the care teams have implemented Pulsara to determine whether the platform can help improve treatment times for critical conditions by facilitating communication between and among EMS teams and care teams at the hospital.
Pulsara is quickly dominating the United States healthcare space as the only regional communication network for healthcare, but the platform is now widely used in Australia too. Researchers of the PROMPT project recently unveiled their preliminary findings.
The project examined "25 Ambulance Victoria branches involving more than 200 paramedics, and 2 regional hospitals, Bendigo Health and Ballarat Health Services, involving more than 200 in-hospital clinicians from emergency departments, neurology, cardiology and radiology."
In addition to finding faster treatment throughout the entire patient journey, the preliminary results of the PROMPT project also show an increase in the proportion of patients who are being treated within the recommended time windows.
Pulsara is humbled and excited about these results, and extends a huge congratulations to the Ambulance Victoria, Bendigo Health, and Ballarat Health Services teams, as well as to PROMPT project supervisor, Dr. Christopher Bladin, and Project member Dr. Kathleen Bagot for their work!
