Next Generation of Emergency Services – Connected EMS (Part III of III)
Every day more than 1,000 lives are lost to sudden cardiac arrest, the leading cause of death in the United States. Therefore every second counts and the ability to arrive on scene quickly and immediately exchange information between the incident scene and the hospital emergency department is critical to continuing saving lives.
Motorola Solutions’ designers, researchers, and engineers work with EMS responders and hospital emergency department personnel to understand their work as well as the challenges they face. Our teams ride in ambulances, carry the equipment and observe their operations. This in-depth immersion helps us innovate best-in-class solutions so they can work quickly and more efficiently.
- Our communication solutions stream mission critical voice, data and video in real-time between EMS responders and the hospital emergency department.
- Automated threat and status detection sensors constantly monitor for trouble by tracking EMS responders’ vitals and other critical data to help understand their status and keep them out of danger.
- Real-time collaboration allows everyone to see the same information from the situation, resulting in faster and better patient health decisions and improved outcomes.
