12-Lead Consolidation & Management

HCA’s Redmond Regional Medical Center in Rome, Georgia is at the top of its game when it comes to cardiac health. The center is a regional referral source for all of Northwest Georgia, as well as parts of Alabama. It is an Accredited Chest Pain Center with Percutaneous Cardiac Intervention (PCI). Nationally recognized as a top cardiac care center, Redmond Regional is also a recipient of the Gold Seal of Approval.

Sounds pretty impressive, doesn’t it?

So anyone can imagine the Commissioner’s dismay when he realized that his 12-lead notification system was…less than impressive.

One can also imagine the frustration of using a system that forced first responders to export 12-Leads instead of making them readily available, clearly and immediately.

One can surely also imagine the uncertainty in the ER as precious time ticked away- open a CATH lab? Wait? Risk a false lab activation?

Risk a life?

So obviously, one can imagine that Redmond Regional decided it was time to make a change.

Luckily for the medical center, the Commissioner found a much more reliable solution, one that is an FDA-listed, HIPAA compliant device that has the capability of receiving 12-leads from multiple monitors- no exporting necessary. A solution that is being used in almost 1,000 medical centers nationwide (and counting); one that enables storing, sharing, forwarding and review at the push of a button.

Luckily for Redmond Regional, they found the GD CAREpoint & GD e-Bridge solutions.

GD Telehealth Solutions allows first responders to send crystal clear, timely 12-lead reports to the ED, eliminating time wasted on exporting the reports or, even worse, trying to decipher blurry photos taken in a fast-moving ambulance.

GD e-Bridge eliminates the need for a guessing game, reducing false lab activations, and saving time and money for the medical center.

We won’t mention what Redmond was using before- we’ll let you….Muse over it….but we are proud to say that their system of choice is now GD Telehealth Solutions.

Interested in having GD CAREpoint or GD e-Bridge be your system of choice? When you’re done musing over it…give GD a call.
