Today Pulsara released version 6.4 of the care coordination platform. The updates are are summarized below:
EMS Unit and EMS Shift
EMS Unit Numbers
Many customers requested the ability for EMS medics to specify the EMS Unit number for each patient they transport to a hospital. Starting in 6.4, users can configure the list of EMS Units available at your EMS Agency, and medics can select their Unit and associated phone number at the start of their shift.
And now, hospital users can easily see the EMS Unit for each patient and quickly tap the phone button to call the Unit.
Mobile User Interface
EMS Medic - Shift Screen:
After a medic logs in, they will be taken to the new Shift Screen where they can select a unit from the list and easily update the phone number for the unit.
NOTE: Pulsara doesn’t display a Unit selection box on the New Patient screen to keep the patient creation workflow as streamlined as possible for EMS.
EMS Medic - New top-level navigation to EMS Shift:
Easily view and update shift information from the always-accessible navigation menu.
EMS Medic - Active Patient EMS Card:
Users can view and update the Unit for an already created patient.
Hospital - Active Patient EMS Card:
Patient care team members at the hospital can easily see the EMS Unit bringing the patient and call the Unit phone with a tap.
Admin User Interface
As an EMS Admin, users can see their list of units, add additional units, and edit existing ones.
Anticoagulants New Default: Not Known
In order to improve patient safety, we modified the Anticoagulants field for stroke to support a “Not Known” option.
Going forward, the default is set to “Not Known” for all new stroke patients.
Case Export Improvements
Users now have the ability to export all patients from the Export Cases screen, including General Patient records.

Test Cases Won't Affect STATS
When users run test cases, entering "Test" as the patient first and last name won't affect your stats!
Removed Distance (Miles) from Mobile Screens
Pulsara still records the automatically calculated distance attached to the case, but removed it from the patient creation flow for simplicity's sake.
Android Notification Update
Notifications that arrive while the app is on pin screen will be sent to the notification drawer on Android, instead of being displayed as a pop-up.
Pulsara now properly displays all members in a team (>25 people) to Admins.
Pulsara now allows ALL admins to manage teams for a user from the Manage Users screen.
The tea improved the Set Age button to consider the full date of birth when calculating age on iOS.
Pulsara now consistently lists all stopped or cancelled patients for every case type in mobile.
