Strengthening EMS & Emergency Department Communication
Timing and communication matter for effective patient care in EMS and hospital systems. Poor patient handoffs can slow down turnaround times, cause adverse patient outcomes and result in care providers who lack the full picture prior to continuing treatment.
Without strong coordination and communication, emergency departments can miss important information needed to respond to patient conditions. To overcome these challenges, Indian River County Fire Rescue in Florida, leveraged ESO Alerting.
