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:
"[In response to COVID-19] Pulsara is being utilized to take 911 responses and perform billable tele-health encounters in lieu of transport to the hospital. This reduces disease exposure and spread, while maintaining revenue for EMS agencies and hospitals."
“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.”
“When COVID-19 and the pandemic started, we realized a true need for telehealth within the community. Pulsara really stepped up and said, ‘We’re working on a platform.’ We came together, it worked great, and we were able to roll out a full platform that we were able to go out and provide care directly in patients’ homes.”
“[By utilizing Pulsara and our ET3 clinic partner agency], where I have four employees who would normally be staffing two ambulances [they can now handle] the call volume of five ambulances. So suddenly, with the same amount of workforce, I'm able to handle twice as much volume just because we're doing it differently. If you're sitting here wondering, does it actually work? Yes, it actually works. And this model can be an absolute beast if you want it to be.”
“Pulsara has been a tremendous advancement in our ability to communicate with patients during the COVID pandemic.”
