Paramedic Benefits from GD Telehealth Solutions
Paramedics play a vital role in initial patient care- they are one of the first line of defense when a 911 call is placed and the person sent out on community paramedic vehicles. Before the patient reaches the Emergency Department, paramedics are responsible for examination, evaluation and treatment, all while simultaneously communicating with the hospital and writing/submitting accurate reports both during transport and during patient transfer.
With all of this life-saving juggling going on in a moving ambulance, paramedics need one solution to keep it all together. They need one way to capture, store and share full STEMI reports- not just a blurry photo; not just a single screen snapshot. They need the ability to access treatment direction from the specialized physicians waiting at the hospital. They need the ability to capture everything, from video and audio to pictures and data, on one mobile device.
With the right tools, paramedics can do all of this and more.
With GD Telehealth Solutions, paramedics can instantly notify the ED of an inbound patient status, such as inbound stroke, STEMI, trauma, mental health or sepsis patient with the push of one button. They can share all data, video, audio and pictures- all of which will be transmitted instantly and securely, timestamped, and stored. No more hand-written forms balanced against the wall of the rig, or on your gloves - all critical data can be easily entered digitally, providing an instant, clear picture for waiting physicians. They can communicate their ETA down to the second, giving hospital staff time to have a bed, a team, and any necessary labs activated and ready. And if the hospital still has questions or care direction to provide, GD Telehealth Solutions makes it simple with real-time secure consultation via their mobile device.
What if the patient refuses care? The refusal can be video-recorded, preventing any future legal messes and unnecessary trouble for the hospital, also in many cases, the physician communicates with the refusing patient. After the physician reviewed the patient’s vitals and data, they determine this refusing patient has a serious situation and convinces the patient to come in.
And once the call is complete the benefits continue. Paramedics can pull up past cases to recreate/reply for training purposes, to clear up any questions about care that was provided, and foster best practices among all members of the team.
Contact GD today to outfit your paramedics with a reliable all-in-one solution that keeps it all together.
