As an emergency room physician, I experience firsthand the impact of outdated communication systems — how they hamper good patient care and challenge even the most talented, dedicated, and well-trained medical professionals. In emergency situations, when seconds count, fast and accurate communication between care teams can mean the difference between life and death.
Too often, medical professionals don’t have the tools they need to ensure the best outcomes for their patients. As you’ll see in the pages of our eBook, a crisis in communication is leading to hundreds of thousands of preventable deaths each year in hospitals and other healthcare settings across the United States. Perhaps what is most frustrating — but at the same time heartening — is that solutions to these problems do exist today. Innovative, progressive and patient-centered health systems have made changes to processes and implemented new technologies that improve communication and lead to better patient care.
We founded Pulsara because it didn’t make sense that I was relying on a convoluted system of faxes and pagers to try to coordinate care for a heart attack patient, yet I could order a pizza, track a shipment, and video chat with my children all on my mobile phone. We are dedicated to improving and streamlining communications between healthcare providers caring for the most critical patients. By building better communication systems we can increase the speed and efficiency of care for patients with time-critical needs, and we can dramatically improve their chances for recovery.
