First responders often face barriers when it comes to connectivity and the transfer and sharing of patient data and other relevant information. When they are out in the field responding to a rural 911 call, or treating a patient via telemedicine, the ability to have access to technology that “just works” is paramount. The current use of a hodgepodge of connectivity devices to transmit data and video to the hospital effectively can impede the ability of first responders to efficiently communicate during an emergency, thereby delaying medical interventions, which can result in poor patient outcomes.
Instead of wondering how to effectively transmit critical patient data to the emergency room, EMS personnel must be able to focus on responding to the patient’s needs and vital signs. That’s where Pulsara, a mobile telehealth and communication platform, comes in, simplifying and streamlining the care coordination process with live audio and video calling, secure messaging, image transfer, ECG transfer, and more.
But what happens when WiFi is unavailable and cellular coverage is spotty? Together with Allerio and FirstNet, first responders have access to the FirstNet dedicated public safety broadband communications platform, allowing paramedics and public safety to refocus their attention on what matters most.
