Challenge

Currently, the EMT/paramedic in the field has limited ability to transmit vital signs and other potentially diagnostic information to the receiving Emergency Department, beyond voice reporting over mobile telephone. This method can lead to inaccurate and incomplete receipt of critical information. In addition, interpretation of diagnostic information such as ECG, blood oxygen saturation, is not possible. Lastly, information from the field must be re-entered into the patient’s electronic medical record upon arrival at the Emergency Department increasing the risk of inaccuracies.
