A 286-bed suburban hospital was without a standardized communication and alerting process. As a result, they were unable to answer all of their inbound notification calls from EMS and did have the ability to record or document them. The selection and implementation of the e-Bridge Communication Platform and CAREpoint Workstation from General Devices were the key to their success. Learn more in this case study.
90% of GD’s Emergency telehealth Study survey respondents use telehealth for pre-hospital EMS communication. The study highlights the value of using telehealth in pre-hospital communication and implementation challenges, and knowledge of a few best practices. Learn more in this case study.
There are unique aspects e-Bridge does that other applications don't.
