Over the last couple of years University Hospital has partnered with the Kent Fire and EMS staff to expand the technology that is available to save lives in Kent.
One of those partnerships involves using LifeNet technology to allow for early notification of hospital doctors for 911 calls that relate to heart or stroke victims.
That early notification allows the hospital to be that much more prepared when the ambulance pulls into the ER dock. That extra preparation saves precious minutes and can help save precious lives.
We’re big fans of the technology and the Kent Fire Chief was featured in a recent video clip that explains how it works — here’s the link to the video (scroll to the bottom of the page): http://betterdatabettercare.com/
