ESO to Market Alerting System to Alert Hospitals of Incoming Critical EMS Patients
EMS-to-Hospital Notification System Will Integrate with ESO EHR ePCR Software for EMS
AUSTIN, Texas, December 14, 2017 — ESO and Innovative Communications, LLC, (InnoComm) have announced a new partnership to market Alerting, a system that notifies hospitals of incoming critical patients in real-time, as an ESO product offering, officials with the two companies said.
“With ESO Alerting, paramedics and EMTs no longer need to interrupt patient care to give a radio report to the hospital about incoming patients,” said Allen Johnson, Vice President and General Manager of Analytics and Health Data Exchange at ESO. According to Johnson, ESO Alerting allows delivery of critical patient information from the field directly to the hospital ED and cath lab. “This is a natural extension to EHR that saves time in both the prehospital setting and hospitals, as well as ensuring that information about critical EMS patients is available throughout the hospital,” he said.
ESO Alerting will integrate with ESO’s industry-leading advanced ePCR, ESO Electronic Health Record (EHR), allowing EMTs and paramedics to enter data once and have it available in the prehospital and hospital electronic patient records.
Based in Charlottesville, VA, Innovative Communications, LLC, was founded in 2014 with a vision to develop a communication tool for EMS to simplify the way meaningful data gets from the incident site to the hospital. “We are thrilled to be part of the ESO team,” said InnoComm President and CEO Ed Cusick. “ESO’s reputation for quality and innovation, plus its rapid growth in the fire and EMS markets, make it a natural partner for TrackEMS.”
