Information Sharing, Wireless Tech Improve EMS-Hospital Coordination

As the founder of Advent Medical Products, Randall Fincke manages the development of advanced technology for the healthcare industry. Since establishing the company in 2004, Randall Fincke has brought a number of products to market, including technologically advanced monitors and other critical and sophisticated communication devices. Innovative technologies, such as those developed by Advent Medical Products, promise to improve patient care through better communication between service providers in hospital organizations and Field EMS professionals.

The effort to move towards a “seamless” model of care for emergency patients involves a significant improvement in coordination between hospitals, R&D companies such as Advent Medical Products, and emergency services departments. In partnership with technology companies, agencies including Montgomery County Hospital District in Texas and San Diego Fire-Rescue in California have linked EMS record systems with those of hospitals, thereby giving emergency departments a real-time window into field conditions and providing paramedics with post-response feedback regarding patients.

Through improved information sharing, medical professionals at all stages of the treatment process will augment their ability to deliver safer and better patient quality of care. This promises to provide both long and short-term benefits in emergency care.
