EMS World pegs Pulsara’s cutting edge communication solution as the winner at EMS World Expo in Nashville.
BOZEMAN, Mont. — Pulsara has repeatedly been recognized as a leading innovator in mobile healthcare communications and has recently garnered the distinction of receiving the 2018 EMS World Innovation Award. Identified as a finalist earlier this fall, Pulsara received the winning news this month. With the addition of Consult, Transfer and Video capabilities, the company’s mission to unite caregivers by connecting healthcare teams continues to shine through in their product advancements.
The 2018 EMS World Innovation Award recognizes new products or those that have undergone significant modifications or upgrades launched after June 15, 2017. It highlights new technologies that are transforming prehospital care and operations.
“We are humbled by the recognition that Pulsara is positively impacting the EMS Community,” said Kris Kaull, Flight Paramedic and Chief Marketing Officer, “Pulsara is a tool for clinicians, by clinicians. We care deeply about simplifying the care providers’ tasks while simultaneously helping those clinicians achieve better patient outcomes.”
Pulsara is a mobile-first platform that enables clinicians to exchange patient-specific information through alerts, messaging, audio clips or video chat during a time-sensitive emergency, no matter the location or type of illness or injury. It is designed for secure, two-way, real-time communication allowing all caregivers to receive the same information simultaneously, including photos (e.g., driver’s license for pre-registration, medication lists), estimated time of arrival, and case summary.
Pulsara is the only solution that entire regions can use to build a communication network between prehospital, intrafacility and interfacility care teams. Recent research shows that Pulsara decreases treatment times by an average of 30%.
“Our healthcare system is highly fragmented. Traditionally, communication solutions have been as well,” said James Woodson, Pulsara CEO and Founder. “Sixty-three percent (63%) of time is wasted secondary to ineffective communication during inter-facility patient transfers. Our new and enhanced inter-facility communication functionality is yet another way regions can leverage our regional communication network to reduce treatment delays and improve patient outcomes.”
Effective communication is a key ingredient to patient safety in any situation, emergency or otherwise. Pulsara’s award-winning platform was built to improve the lives of patients and caregivers through innovative communication.
Pulsara provides a real-time communication network across an entire region. The Pulsara platform, built on the power of mobile technology, unites the right clinicians at the right time for the right patient -- providing transparency and streamlined communication. Simply CREATE a dedicated patient channel. BUILD the team. And, COMMUNICATE using audio, video, instant messaging, data, images, and key benchmarks. Studies report an average decreased treatment time of nearly 30% when using Pulsara. Pulsara is the evidence-based standard of care. For more information, visit https://www.pulsara.com.
