If you're a healthcare professional, you recognize the problem all too well ...
The patient enters the hospital (shoot, what was door time again?), the ED doc makes his way to the patient, and determines it's a true STEMI. Your patient needs to go to the cath lab. But are they ready for him? Is the cath team all there or are some people still on their way in? The call list was wrong again, so now your unit clerk is frantically paging and calling around to try and figure out who the correct on call doc is. The cardiologist has requested a copy of the ECG, so your unit clerk is also working on faxing it over from the ED. Is it working? Has it sent? Maybe she should try email. But she still doesn't know if the cardiologist on call is on his way in! SO MUCH CHAOS (all the while your poor patient is losing precious tissue because of wasted time).
Pulsara's easy-to-adopt applications, built atop a Cloud-based platform, provide access to telecommunications services via smart device - seamlessly unifying communication. With real-time interactions between the field (EMTs and paramedics) and between hospital staff (RNs, MDs, Techs, etc.), Pulsara allows for online and wireless delivery of data to healthcare providers. This helps accelerate time to treatment for critical care patients, which in turn improves outcomes.
And, Pulsara’s secure electronic messaging feature allows for transmission of an ECG image or medication list to the hospital, or simply lets you get the quick answer you need, right when you need it. Pulsara increases the speed and efficiency of care for patients with time-critical medical needs by facilitating coordination among care team members. Providing quick and coordinated treatment to these patients dramatically improves their chances for recovery. Simple. Efficient. Effective.
Who We Are
Pulsara is a Bozeman-based care coordination company focused on the acute setting of healthcare. The idea for the company came about at a dinner party when a group of physicians, fed up with the pitfalls of their current acute care protocols, asked “How can we improve patient care in our facilities? How can we help our healthcare system pursue value based healthcare – providing improved quality of care at a lower cost?”
This challenge turned into a quest to improve telecommunications access services for patients, healthcare providers, and healthcare systems in acute care coordination. The group combined their years of personal experience with the wisdom from team members with all departments involved with the delivery of critical care – from EMS to definitive treatment.
