EMS and providers use the all-in-one e-Bridge and D-Scribe X to support the ET3 Model. HIPAA-secure live video medical direction, and data capture and sharing enable provider consults so that EMS doesn’t have to transport all patients to the emergency department.
Configurable workflows and case management with event tracking and time-stamping support EMS in administering treatment in the field or facilitating efficient transfers to alternate destinations like urgent care and primary care doctors. These efforts reduce unnecessary hospitalizations at unnecessary costs, and give both EMS and providers more time to help more patients.
According to the Centers for Medicaid & Medicare Services, 16 percent of emergency ambulance transports to a hospital ED could have been resolved by transporting the patient to an alternative treatment site. This equates to a $560 million annual savings.
