Pre-hospital care is all about timing. Door to needle time is critical to ensure the best patient outcomes, and this all comes down to ambulance arrival. With GD’s built-in ETA geo-mapping technology, the hospital medical team can track EMS’s anticipated arrival down to the second and see where the ambulance is on a map at any given moment – all from a mobile device.
Knowing precisely when a patient will arrive enables the medical team to notify the physician(s) and specialty doctors, activate the lab, free up a bed, and so on. The more prepared the ED is, the faster it can start treating the patient.
In short, you’ll know who is coming and the exact second they’ll arrive, so you can better prepare.
What if your ED knew exactly when the next ambulance was pulling up and who was being treated? This would change everything, right? You could prepare for the patient’s arrival and get the right team in place. With GD’s new Ambulance Tracking & Real Time ETA solution, you can!
Nurses, doctors and EMS coordinators will receive an automated alert of an incoming patient, including the precise arrival time (down to the second), patient information and vitals – right to their mobile device.
What this means for your ED:
- Timely preparation of incoming EMS patients, leading to better patient outcomes
- Faster and smoother patient handoff
- Less chaos
- The right team and care available at the right time
- Proactive management of incoming patients
