Mitigate Patient Surge
Pulsara is the healthcare communications and logistics platform that unites teams and technologies during dynamic events. HIPAA-compliant and video-enabled, Pulsara can be accessed on any smart device for an unlimited number of users.
See how one metro area used Pulsara to combat the communication inefficiencies highlighted by the pandemic.
What happens after the pandemic? Don't spend time, money, and resources implementing a system that will only serve you during specific events like COVID-19. With Pulsara, the same system you use for major stress events is also the one you'll use all day, every day for every other patient type, for everything from behavioral health to STEMI to trauma and beyond.
Rather than transport all of your patients to hospitals that may be at capacity, reduce the risk of infection and save time and resources with a telehealth consultation from anywhere with Pulsara PATIENT.
When your facility is already at capacity, the last thing you need is to be spending your time making multiple phone calls trying to transfer patients. Alternatively, if you have beds available, it should be simple to share that information with those who need it. With Pulsara, gain instant team awareness into available resources at other facilities, and even track individual patients' transfer statuses.
Pulsara provides a deliberate and organized approach to matching hospitals needing to transfer COVID-19 patients to hospitals with capability and capacity to treat them. You can also:
Leverage live video and messaging for medical control scenarios, transporting only the patients who absolutely need to transport to the hospital.
Mitigate and manage patient surge.
Limit clinician exposure and preserve personal protective equipment.
Below is an example of how some regions are currently leveraging Pulsara for COVID-19:
“When COVID-19 hit our community, we immediately recognized that our vision of needing to have immediate telemedicine capability from the crews in the field to the medical directors was an immediate necessity. It wasn't something we could wait a long time for, and the logical choice was to use Pulsara……We wanted a product that we didn't just start up because of the pandemic. We wanted to use an existing product that we knew worked well that could flex into and out of pandemic situations.”
“We made all of our chiefs a destination, and that allowed our field staff and for those medics on the squad to do video-to-video consults to determine [COVID patient management and triage]… The [Pulsara] app is super intuitive and easy to figure out. Once you get one or two things in, you have it.”
“The best way to move forward, regardless of COVID-19, is a system-wide approach to advancing our communication. Everybody struggles with all these different modalities and chain links that can break. We see Pulsara as a holistic system of care that we are planning on expanding through the entire patient base, not just isolated to strokes or heart attacks. We’re already working on that and see that as the vision of our near future.”
“Pulsara has been a tremendous advancement in our ability to communicate with patients during the COVID pandemic.”
“Pulsara was really helpful with suspected COVID [and patient triage]… Victoria had quite big [COVID-19] numbers for Australia, and it was really helpful to minimise the risk of having infected patients coming through the ED.”
