How Networked Communication Makes Care Teams Exponentially Better

Featured Image

Networked Communication Tools Create Better Care Team Connections

When inter-organizational healthcare systems utilize shared communication tools, every member of the patient’s care team has access to the most up-to-date and accurate information available—in real time.

A People-Focused Solution

Pulsara is a HIPAA-compliant, secure and easy-to-use app that unites the entire care team, resolving many of the challenges of coordinated care.

It’s a networked communication platform that connects people when seconds matter with a secure, unified patient channel—replacing multiple phone calls, radio reports, faxes, and pagers—and allowing care teams to communicate efficiently and effectively when treating patients.

Receiving hospitals who have embraced telehealth are able to proactively prepare for the patient’s arrival and greatly expand the pool of expertise available for treating them.

Healthcare Systems Leveraging Pulsara’s Healthcare Communication Platform Can:

  • Facilitate smoother consults and transfers with instant patient data
  • Connect team members quickly and easily at the touch of a button
  • Streamline workflows during pre-hospital, intrahospital, and inter-hospital care
  • Expand inter-organizational care teams in a non-linear fashion as the case evolves
  • Share audio, video, instant messaging, data, images, and key benchmarks in real time

Building Regional Systems of Care with Pulsara

Des Moines metro-area EMS agencies and hospitals wanted to streamline care coordination during time-sensitive emergencies. They implemented Pulsara as a region-wide solution across 32 separate healthcare organizations to improve treatment times, patient care, and team coordination. By building a regional system of care, they were able to connect all care teams on one channel of communication and successfully reduced their average door-to-CT times by 21%.

“We have seen case after case where a patient receives time-sensitive care rapidly
because of improved communications through Pulsara.”
—Dave Edgar, Assistant EMS Chief

Strengthening Healthcare Systems Around the World

Latrobe Regional Hospital in Australia wanted a technology solution that could scale to meet patient needs and centralize communication for all of its departments, staff, and partners. Made possible by grant funding, the hospital activated Pulsara across multiple entities in February 2020, including ambulance partners, cardiology, stroke, and mental health teams. 

The Latrobe team implemented Pulsara just in time to use it for COVID-19 response, and successfully used the app to minimize the risk of exposure with better communication around moving and treating patients. And, within a matter of months, Latrobe staff were able to improve door-to-CT times by 68%. (Read the full case study here.)

“Pulsara gets the right information to the right care team members at the right time,
allowing us to adequately prepare for a variety of patient cases.”
—Janet May, Stroke and Pulsara Coordinator

 

Unite Care Teams Across Organizations

Time and lives are precious. Ready to build and unite your inter-organizational care teams with a solution that works?

Questions to Ask Yourself and Care Team Members:

  • How much better could patient care be if communication was streamlined across a healthcare system, regardless of location or organization?
  • How could your life, the lives of your fellow clinicians, and the lives of your patients improve with an efficiently coordinated patient care journey?
  • How much more efficient could patient care be if each team member has easy access to patient details—providing what they need to know, when they need to know it—on a single channel dedicated to each patient?


Let’s create better patient care together.
