Preventing False Lab Activations with e-Bridge
By: General Devices
Once you type those 3 numbers, you fully expect the knock on the door that comes a few minutes later will bring an expert, someone who knows exactly (or almost exactly) what to do to keep you stable while they get you to the ED. You expect them to know which questions to ask, which treatments to pursue, and which hospital's doors to pull up to with doctors at the ready.
You expect an EMS team that is both well-trained and well-equipped with the latest, most reliable, life-saving technology.
Because HCA's EMS is equipped with and trained in GD e-Bridge, they are connected to Chippenham's ED before a stretcher is even fully secured in the rig. Vitals and medical history are uploaded to a system that can be shared with ED nurses, who will immediately link in the resident cardiologist. If the doctor isn't currently at the hospital, he or she can review the file while heading out the door, and alert the Cath lab to be ready as well, should a STEMI report necessitate it. The leads are hooked up and the report is immediately transferred (clearly, no shaky photographs)
By the time you arrive at the ED, Chippenham Hospital will be ready; No need to sit in a Cath lab unless it is absolutely necessary. No need to rehash symptoms, food allergies, previous surgeries, or other medical history to staff member after staff member. GD e-Bridge has already saved all documentation and test results from the rig in a newly-created digital file, which can be updated and shared throughout the hospital.
HCA Chippenham's patients are in good hands; Insurance companies are saving money; and Chippenham is saving precious time and resources for each new patient that comes through their doors.
Countless patients trust HCA Chippenham to provide them with the best care possible; and HCA Chippenham, a highly-renowned medical center that has been smoothly running since 1972, trusts GD e-Bridge.
