FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
BOZEMAN, MT -- October 10, 2018 -- For the second time, EMS World recognized Pulsara for its continued innovation following the release of the platform’s newest functionality that redefines the healthcare communication industry. The added ability to consult or transfer a patient; coupled with the power of an innovative live video chat feature, expands Pulsara’s ability to bring regional teams together to improve the lives of patient and caregivers. With a focus on patient safety and team coordination, the Pulsara mobile platform delivers evidence-based workflows to decrease crucial time-to-treatment for any time-sensitive emergency.
The 2018 EMS World Innovation Award recognizes new products or those that have undergone significant modifications or upgrades launched after June 15, 2017. It highlights new technologies that are transforming prehospital care and operations.
“Transferring a patient from one facility to another is an onerous, convoluted process,” said critical care flight paramedic and Pulsara Chief Marketing Officer, Kris Kaull. “In fact, studies show that 63% of time is wasted on ineffective communications during a patient transfer. Now, with a few taps, paramedics in the field or physicians at a referring facility can quickly connect with the resources they need.”
Pulsara is a cloud-based mobile healthcare communication platform that spans the patient care journey. The only platform that brings together intrafacility, interfacility and prehospital communications, Pulsara is for ANY emergent condition. With Pulsara, EMS agencies and hospitals reduce risks during transitions of care, increase efficiency in interfacility transfers, improve turnaround times for EMS, improve capture of registration and billing information, share video of any injury or condition, eliminate costs for ECG transmission and reduce costly false activations.
“This award recognizes the impact of our platform addressing ineffective communication throughout the patient journey." said James T Woodson, Founder and CEO of Pulsara. "Value based healthcare and patient outcomes are determined more by what we do together rather than by what we accomplish for our patients in our silos. Hospitals now have a simple, cost-effective tool that unites the patient's prehospital and interfacility team members with their intrafacility clinicians."
Pulsara provides a real-time communication network across an entire region. The Pulsara platform, built on the power of mobile technology, unites the right clinicians at the right time for the right patient -- providing transparency and streamlined communication. Simply CREATE a dedicated patient channel. BUILD the team. And, COMMUNICATE using audio, video, instant messaging, data, images, and key benchmarks. Studies report an average decreased treatment time of nearly 30% when using Pulsara. Pulsara is the evidence-based standard of care. For more information, visit https://www.pulsara.com.
