Proactive Acute Care
Smarter, Proactive Acute Care Accelerates,
Streamlines and Enhances Treatment
Seconds equal lives with acute care. As the moments tick away, so do the chances of a full recovery – especially with STEMI, trauma and burn patients.
One of the biggest challenges to the speed of acute care is how responsive it is. A person gets hurt or has a medical issue, 911 is called, EMS is dispatched and treatment is given based on the patient’s condition. Each step of the situation is reactive. What if the tables turned and acute care became more proactive in terms of care? This would quite literally change everything.
Smarter, proactive acute care is what GD strives to accomplish. We help hospitals and EMS teams anticipate patient needs before the ambulance reaches the hospital, or for example, prior to the patient being seen by the cardiologist. Proactive care leads to far better outcomes, reduced costs and risk.
GD’s CAREpoint and e-Bridge proactive care solutions equip medical staff and paramedics with these (and other) real-time capabilities:
- One-click team notifications
- One-click lab activation
- Automatic routing of ePCR to medical teams
- Full STEMI reports accessible via mobile phone
- ETA Geo-tracking of ambulance arrival
These and other proactive care features enable your staff to:
- Streamline care: Review full cases and make workflow improvements to accelerate treatment and improve outcomes.
- Anticipate care: ED staff and specialty physicians can review real-time electronic patient care reports in advance of patient arrival to better prepare treatment.
- Initiate care: Proactively initiate lab activations and other treatment protocols via automated smart triggers, which are activated upon specific actions or data entry.
- Accelerate care: Speed patient handoffs and door-to-needle time by giving ED staff immediate, advanced access to EMS-generated data prior to arrival. Equipment, beds and physicians can be readied in advance.
- Visualize care: EMS can share live video with the hospital to demonstrate how the patient is presenting, which enables the ED to prepare proper treatment.
- Guide care: Live stream doctors and/or specialty physicians right into the ambulance to direct additional care.
- Coordinate care: Live-track and prepare for multiple incoming patients simultaneously with real-time, electronic workflow management.
