Pulsara Expands to Provide a Communication Solution for Entire Regions
June 4—Recently, Pulsara announced the latest version of the platform, which includes real-time consultation between specialists, transfer functionality, and streaming video. With these added features, Pulsara is continuing down the path of helping its partners improve patient outcomes and minimize medical errors due to miscommunication.
“This iteration of Pulsara is a turning point for the company,” said James Woodson, Board Certified Emergency Physician and CEO of Pulsara. “Simplifying the jobs of clinicians and allowing for increased efficiency and optimized patient care has always been Pulsara’s goal. With the added features of Consult/Transfer and Live Video we hope to streamline the communication process even further.”
Early versions of the transfer feature shaved an average of 60 minutes off of facility transfer times. With this product, Pulsara provides total transparency across entities, allowing the whole regional team to be on the same page. This vastly improves speed of sending and accepting transfers, resulting in faster time to treatment.
“The fundamental power of the Pulsara platform enables massive improvements for transferred patients by sharing limited patient data across healthcare entities and providing an ability to easily and quickly alert people and teams within a region of a transfer,” said Erich Hannan, Chief Technology Officer. “This provides total transparency to all team members regarding which people and teams have responded and acknowledged the patient."
Pulsara is the only complete communication tool—no need for multiple products that specialize in communicating during just one portion of the patient journey.
“Pulsara is focused on streamlining the communication process throughout the entire patient journey. Prehospital alerting to the emergency department is critical, but that’s only one piece of the puzzle,” Said Kris Kaull, Critical Care Flight Paramedic and Chief Marketing Officer. “To build an entire system, the product needs to cross traditional barriers and include multiple EMS agencies and multiple facilities in the region.”
Pulsara is a regional communication network for healthcare. All healthcare providers in the region can communicate about a patient on a dedicated communication channel. The data gathered through the application can provide practical insights into referral patterns as well as reveal useful quality metrics for improving efficiencies in the transfer process.
