FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
BOZEMAN, MT -- June 5, 2018 -- Pulsara and JEMS (Journal of Emergency Medical Services) are proud to announce the selection of Pulsara’s version 7.0 as a Hot Product from the JEMS EMS Today Conference & Exposition, which was held February 21–23 in Charlotte, NC.
Prior to this release, Pulsara’s communication platform focused on STEMI and Stroke care from EMS to definitive treatment within the hospital. Version 7.0 allows users to dynamically create a patient channel, build any team based on patient need, and communicate.
“Broadening the Platform to include any time sensitive emergency will allow EMS providers to have one way to do their job. They no longer need to use different communication tools for different conditions. One tool for any emergency,” said James Woodson, Board Certified Emergency Physician and CEO of Pulsara.
Pulsara was selected after a team of twelve judges consisting of emergency medical services (EMS) product specialists, physicians, educators, managers and paramedics reviewed a host of product contenders. The judges reviewed products designed to not only improve the ability to deliver optimal emergency medical care to sick and injured patients, but also allow EMS agencies to do it safely, more efficiently and with enhanced comfort for the patient.
Products were rated on a 1–5 scale in four distinct categories: 1) Originality; 2) Functionality; 3) Ease of use; and 4) Need in the EMS setting. Pulsara was one of only 30 products selected as Hot Products after the EMS Today Hot Products review team reviewed and rated 64 products submitted by 52 companies.
JEMS Editor-in-Chief and EMS Today Conference Chairman A.J. Heightman said, “There were an amazing group of Hot Product submissions for our reviewers to review and rate this year. All of the products reviewed were extremely innovative and well designed for the EMS industry, showing that our industry is keeping pace with the current science of emergency medicine and developing or upgrading their products to stay out in front of the science and technology curve.”
The selection of the final 30 Hot Products appears in the June issue of JEMS and can also be viewed at http://www.jems.com/2017-hot-products.
