DFW airport emergency room takes off with innovative communication platform
The world’s first fully-equipped airport emergency room opened recently at the Dallas Fort Worth International Airport. Using state-of-the-art communication platform, Pulsara, the ED will be able to quickly exchange patient information, estimated time of arrival, and other data with local EMS to get critical patients treated sooner.
These medical care facility projects at DFW are the brainchildren of Texas company Code 3 ER and Urgent Care. According to the article published in Dallas News, Code 3's Chief Executive, Carrie de Moor, said “I think that there’s definitely a need … We definitely hope to see it expand not only in the United States but potentially throughout the world.”
