Video Enabled Ambulance
Bringing Doctors into the Ambulance when they are needed most
The President gets an Ambulance and a Doctor of his own, for the rest of us there is an Ambulance, video-enabled with swyMed.
Beaming the training, experience and authority of an MD or specialist into emergency situations can have tremendous impact on successful outcomes. The swyMed Video-Enabled Ambulance provides intuitive, click to call connections between EMS crews in the field and local hospitals or tertiary care centers.
A quick consultation and review of a crash site can help direct a patient to the care center with the resources to meet their specific needs. And if it isn’t too serious, that care center might be an urgent care rather than an ER, or even the back of the ambulance.
One call, one transport, one positive outcome.
It makes so much sense that it became the underlying principle of CMS’ Emergency Triage, Treat and Transport (ET3) initiative.
The same high quality, reliable video telehealth technology that enables ET3 field triage makes high risk pregnancy, pediatric, or unstable patient transports less stressful for all as the patient can be monitored en route and both the originating and receiving sites can see and consult on the status and best course of treatment. And of course, there are also mobile stroke response vehicles like the one pictured above with an on board Head CT.
To date, swyMed has video enabled ambulances and “Community Care Vehicles” to serve at multiple levels: Basic Life Support (BLS), Advanced Life Support (ALS), Mobile Stroke Units (MSU), Critical Care Transport Units (CCTU) and Mobile Intensive Care Units (MICU) in the US, Europe and India.
