For disaster relief operations or emergency medical services (EMS), time isn’t just money—it's a matter of life and death. BioSigns helps emergency medical workers save lives. Our mobile monitoring systems are simple to use in even the most urgent situations. Patient status is automatically livestreamed to anyone who needs to see it, whether you’re a paramedic in the ambulance, a doctor at the hospital or a specialist at a faraway facility.
Real time patient monitoring, saving lives
BioSigns ambulance monitoring takes telemonitoring to the next level, helping medical workers save lives in the most fast-paced, urgent conditions. An ambulance-to-hospital based telemedicine system is the best example of how mobile technology can help save lives. It provides real-time patient information to the hospital via wireless communications, enabling remote diagnoses and primary care and reducing rescue response time.
In the past, when a patient arrived at the hospital in an ambulance, doctors knew nothing about their condition. That meant wasted time getting information from EMTs, checking notes and asking questions before they could start treatment.
BioSigns eliminates this wasted time. With the BioSigns Telemonitoring system, the victim’s vital signs (e.g. ECG, SpO2, respiration, skin temperature and continuous non-invasive blood pressure) are measured and transmitted to the hospital in near real time over Wi-Fi or 3G. Video and audio help fill in any information that the data leave out. Doctors can see videos taken by digital cameras installed in the ambulance, and even zoom in to see condition and eye response.
Our system saves time in the ambulance. The measurements are automatic, so the EMTs can set it up and go on with their job. It’s also easy to use on the hospital side. Emergency room physicians and nurses review the incoming data at open or more wall mounted PC's or on a mobile device such as a tablet or smartphone in easy-to-read format.
This means no wasted time when the ambulance arrives. The emergency and trauma physicians can triage cases remotely, and start to prepare a surgery team if needed, prior to the patient's arrival. If they decide the available medical resources of the hospital are insufficient for the situation, they can refer the case to an alternative medical care center. The ER docs can discuss the situation with the emergency medical technicians (EMTs), and instruct the EMTs to administer primary care or emergency medical services, such as giving injections or fracture treatment. And they can make preliminary assessments before the arrival of the patient, so they’ll know what to do before they arrive.
The BioSigns Telemonitoring System is especially valuable for residents living in remote areas, a long distance from hospitals and clinics, as well as for casualties in remote locations.
No one likes technology that’s confusing and time-consuming to learn. But for medical professionals, easy-to-use tech is crucial—they can’t afford to let quality of care slide while they get up to speed on a new app.
The BioSigns Telemonitoring System is a convenient solution that’s designed with user friendliness in mind. It’s a server-based solution, meaning BioSigns devices sent data in near real time from the vehicle to a server application—from there, it’s available from anywhere in the world. BioSigns connects to the server via the vehicle's on-board Wi-Fi, or directly via its built-in 3G modem with SIM card. EMTs on the spot can see the data on a ruggedized laptop installed with the BioSigns monitoring software .
Our system saves time in multiple ways. GPS is built-in the BioSigns device, allowing the hospital to locate the vehicles and provide the shortest routing, so transport is a quick as possible.
Digital cameras may also be installed in the vehicles to record how emergency medical services are administered, and to send the hospital real-time images of the patients. And microphones transmit high-quality audio, to allow for easy communication between EMTs and doctors.
Easy to integrate
Communication between different systems is one of the largest challenges for today’s healthcare organizations. Our system works—no matter what other systems and technology you’re already using. The BioSigns Telemonitoring System can be integrated with most systems, from monitors in the ambulance, to electronic patient records and information systems at hospitals. This enables a cohesive flow of information from the ambulance to the hospital, resulting in greater efficiency and patient safety.
The security of your patients’ data is a top priority for us. Encrypted transmission of patient data prevents unauthorized access and data corruption. We offer full traceability of patient data, and secure login Compliant with ISO 27001 Information Security.
We understand medical staff’s problems, and we’ve designed our system to eliminate them.
Remote patient monitoring:
The patient's vital signs are measured onboard the vehicle and sent to the hospital physicians for real-time monitoring and later review; such data may include 3, 5 and 12 lead ECG, SpO2, Plethysmogram, Respiration, Skin Temperature and Continuous Non Invasive Blood Pressure*.
Real-time physician "telepresence":
With direct live transmission of voice and video, physicians at the hospital can watch over the patient en route to the hospital, make remote preliminary diagnoses and triage decisions, and prepare for surgery if needed.
With directions from ER docs, EMTs can provide primary care and emergency medical services to patients onboard. Stroke assessment and intensive care services can also be made earlier, in critical life-saving moments.
With patient information, available prior to the patient's arrival, hospitals can make triage decisions earlier, and notify specialty physicians. If the patient's situation is beyond the hospital's resources or ability, the patient can be referred earlier to other hospitals or medical care centers.
Vital signs data, audio and video produces precise, real-time live information as to what you are dealing with before arrival.
Allows for more timely, more accurate decisions, which reduces morbidity and mortality, and improves outcomes.
