Pulsara Around the World - 2023 Recap and January 2024

November & December Recap

We made it! In just a few days, we'll be ushering in a new year. What has Team Pulsara been up to in 2023? Before we dive into our annual Year in Review, let's look at what the team was up to in November and December.

In addition to exhibiting at ten trade shows, Pulsara's SVP - Strategic Accounts, Corey Ricketson, and Sr. Director - Strategic Initiatives, Lee Wallace, hosted an MCI Academy during the Pee Dee EMS Symposium,  Pulsara's SVP - Strategic Initiatives, Joey Branton, presented a session during IAEM's Annual Conference & EMEX, and Pulsara's Founder & CEO, Dr. James Woodson, talked to attendees about 'Pre-hospital technologies: LVO detection, triage, feedback' during the EMS World SPEED Sessions at the SVIN Annual Conference. 

Exploring Customer Successes 

  • Presented by the American Trauma Society and moderated by Pulsara CS Specialist Cara McCoy, the webinar 'How Tech + Relationships + A Winning Trauma Care System' brought two expert Colorado trauma program leaders together to discuss how they developed a state-of-the-art trauma care system with Pulsara.

2023 | A Year in Review

Pulsara In the News

  • First responders in Texas put Pulsara's Incident & Event Management functionality to the test. The simulation focused on what it would take to triage, transport, track, and reunify over 100 patients involved in the incident, all through the Pulsara platform. 
  • The Arkansas Department of Health announced that the Pulsara platform is available to all ambulance services, acute care, nursing homes, behavioral health hospitals, and other affiliated healthcare facilities in Arkansas through funding made possible by the Arkansas Department of Health.
  • 11 News spoke with the Colorado Springs Fire Department one year after Club Q, which has rolled out patient identification technology by Pulsara. Firefighters put wristbands on patients, connecting to the platform, giving hospitals real-time information so medical staff can prepare. 

Approved Cloud Software Supplier in the United Kingdom 

  • At the beginning of the year, Pulsara was listed as an approved cloud software supplier by Crown Commercial Service on the updated G-Cloud 13 framework. Because Pulsara is now available through this framework, organisations in the UK are specifically enabled to procure the Pulsara UNITED solution for hospitals and ambulance services.  

Webinars

  • How can your teams Leverage Network Communication to Build a System of Care that Scales? In this interview between Pulsara Senior Vice President - Strategic Accounts Corey Ricketson and Executive Director of the Southwest Texas Regional Advisory Council (STRAC), Eric Epley, the pair identified what it takes to build a true system of care that scales and how modern and scalable technologies are necessary to maintain this infrastructure system into the future.

They also decreased their average door-to-CT time for stroke patients from 30 minutes to less than 6 minutes.
