Saline Memorial Hospital Reduces STEMI Treatment Times by 28% in 4 Months

By Isabella Rapp on Oct 11, 2021

Saline Memorial Hospital is the only full-service hospital in the rural area of Saline County, Arkansas. Serving over 120,000 people, Saline Memorial is licensed for 177 beds and has its own EMS service (MedTran) that brings in 85 to 90% of their patients. According to Brian Mann, Saline Memorial's Director of Growth and Outreach, Saline County is and has been “one of the fastest-growing counties in Arkansas for around a decade.”

With a rapidly growing population and a system running to keep up, Saline Memorial Hospital was looking for a way to reduce their treatment times for patients arriving via EMS. Because it serves a dispersed population across a large service area and is the only American College of Cardiology Accredited Chest Pain Center in the community, Saline Memorial struggled to keep their first medical contact-to-device times low. The ACC and the AHA recommend a standard of 90 minutes. According to Jeannie Otts, RT, R, CV, ARRT, Cardiac Cath Lab Director, Saline Memorial’s STEMI patients’ first medical contact-to-device time averaged around 105 minutes from the field.

Are Pagers More Reliable Than Cell Phones?

By Isabella Rapp on Oct 08, 2021

Debunking the myths of integrated mobile technology

For a long time, pagers have been considered the logical choice for hospitals because they can get a message through even when a cell phone can’t get a signal. They have been standard in healthcare for over 40 years for good reason. 

However, mobile technology has come a long way over the past two decades. It's become the way we communicate for everything else in our lives. We text friends and family members. We can even order a pizza and track it to the front door. In the healthcare world, there have been holdups to converting to mobile technology, mostly due to concerns about the reliability of smartphones when compared to pagers. So, let's compare, contrast, and bust a few myths about pagers....

Pulsara Around the World - September 2021

By Isabella Rapp on Sep 01, 2021

August Recap

It was a busy month for Regional Sales Manager Wes Wood and others as they staffed the Pulsara booth at two in-person conferences and one virtual event. From Phoenix, AZ to San Antonio, TX, the flexibility and scalability of both our platform and team were evident at these exhibitions. 

COVID-19 has not seemed to slow down over the last few months; however, Pulsara is working hard to help our customers and their communities effectively manage the surge of patients and transfers throughout hospitals.  Both the Texas Emergency Medical Task Force (TX EMTF) and the Montgomery County Hospital District (MCHD) in Texas have leveraged Pulsara as an innovative solution and are able to not only reduce excessive phone calls, but also monitor their patients all through the mobile platform.

Pulsara also made groundbreaking strides forward in a rural and underserved Colorado community by integrating a telehealth and community paramedicine program with emergency services and hospitals in the area. After its success, the Teller County, CO leaders worked with Pulsara to publish a case study highlighting the radical development of their communities and how other emergency services agencies across the globe can do the same. Check out the video below:

 

As we head into the month of September, we kick off a busy conference season. Here's where you can find us!
