New mobile technology is being used to help [reduce treatment times] at Singing River Health System.
Singing River health care providers say Pulsara, a new medical application, dramatically speeds up communication between First Responders and their hospital emergency departments.
Every minute counts during an emergency. That's why health experts say this new mobile communication tool is so important.
"Every minute we save is brain [tissue] and heart muscle saved," says Acadian Ambulance Paramedic, Patrick Phillips. He adds they're already seeing a difference since Singing River started using Pulsara three months ago. The medical app offers real time communication between First Responders and the hospital. Phillips says, "We've had several cases where we have saved tons of time, anywhere between 10 to 20 minutes of time saved."
