Pulsara Named 2022 SIIA CODiE Award Finalist in Best Healthcare Technology Solution

Pulsara MED OPS™ earns nod from industry leaders for its impact on healthcare communication during MCIs, large-scale emergencies, and disasters. 

BOZEMAN, Mont., May 23, 2022 - Pulsara, the leading mobile telehealth and communication platform that connects healthcare teams across organizations, announced today that Pulsara MED OPS was named a 2022 SIIA CODiE Award finalist in the “Best Healthcare Technology Solution” category. CODiE finalists represent the best products, technologies, and services in software, information, and business technology. 

The SIIA CODiE Awards, the long-running, premier awards program for the software and information industries, are produced by the Software & Information Industry Association (SIIA), the principal trade association for the software, education, media, and digital content industries.  Pulsara MED OPS™ was picked as one of 137 finalists across 43 business categories in a talent-packed field of nominees.


“The 2022 CODiE Award finalists highlight the products and people who drove their industries forward through innovative products and leadership in these uncertain times,” said SIIA President Jeff Joseph. “These honorees continue the proud tradition of CODiE Award finalists of recognizing the most impactful products, services, and leaders of their time, setting a foundation for the next generation of innovators. Congratulations to all who received this well-earned acknowledgment.” 

Pulsara is a HIPAA-compliant, secure, easy-to-use communication and logistics platform that unites healthcare teams and technologies across departments and organizations for any patient event. Replacing archaic technologies with live video, audio, instant messaging, image sharing, and more, Pulsara unites the entire care team on one patient channel. With Pulsara, care providers see reduced treatment times and reduced costs, improving the lives of both patients and caregivers. 

When the pandemic began, Pulsara moved quickly to aid the many health systems overwhelmed by surges of COVID-19 patients needing emergent care. The Pulsara MED OPS™ package provides emergency managers with one unifying tool to connect team members during any event—from the Multiple Patient Incident (MPI/MCI), to the full-fledged disaster, to the worldwide pandemic. By enabling systems of care that scale, the Pulsara MED OPS™ package provides emergency responders with a secure and HIPAA-compliant communication solution that can integrate into existing workflows or establish new ones depending on the event. 



Using Pulsara MED OPS™, everyone—from EMS to Public Health—has full transparency from the beginning of the event through patient follow-up and reporting. Built to eliminate fragmentation of communication and coordinate mutual aid, Pulsara effortlessly scales as the situation unfolds, translating to more efficient emergency management and patient care. 

During the COVID pandemic, the scalability of Pulsara MED OPS™ gave the Texas Emergency Medical Task Force the flexibility to build Regional Medical Operation Coordinating Centers (RMOCCs). Utilizing Pulsara’s platform, these coordination centers were able to assess regional and statewide needs and compile resources (i.e., bed availability lists from hospitals) into one place. 

While Pulsara offers a 60-day implementation period, it took just 48 hours—during a COVID surge—to get the RMOCCs onboarded. The time savings and reduction in miscommunications were tangible. The RMOCCs streamlined the patient transfer process, reducing the number of phone calls to transfer one patient by 75% (from 30-50 calls down to 7-12). 

From rural areas to entire cities, regions, and states, healthcare providers can communicate with every member of the care team in real-time—without the worry of information being lost due to limited connectivity. Pulsara’s public API is built on a secure, cloud-based platform, allowing for seamless integrations and partnerships with companies including AT&T’s FirstNet. These partnerships ensure communications are prioritized for delivery during high-stress events when other networks are jammed or down. 

“We are honored to be recognized by the SIIA CODiE Awards as a healthcare technology leader and innovator,” said James Woodson, CEO and Founder of Pulsara. “At Pulsara, we believe It’s About People. When care teams are connected, the lives of both patients and caregivers are improved. From the rural care teams to the urban multi-facility healthcare organization to the emergency medical operations task force COVID response teams, supporting each person and team to better communicate and care for their patients is what drives us onward.” 

The SIIA CODiE Awards are the industry's only peer-recognized awards program. Finalists are determined by industry experts. CODiE Award winners will be announced during the virtual winner announcement celebrations on June 8 and June 9, 2022.
