Title Advanced Clinical Decision Support for Transport of the Critically Ill Patient.
Publication Date Oct 2012
Media Count 21p
Personal Author H. R. Flori
Abstract The overarching goal of this application has been to develop and test the efficacy of a comprehensive, interfacility transport system that maximizes clinical decision support (CDS) opportunities available to the transport team. This system will embody both the visual and auditory interface available through telemedical infrastructure combined with a real time, hand held, electronic medical record (EMR) compatible and interactive clinical decision support (CDS) tool. To complete this goal, we have successfully engaged our existing ground and air critical care transport (Reach Air Medical, Inc) infrastructure, as well as our OffSite Care critical care telemedicine platform and Children s Hospital Information Technology specialists as well as key consultants in the military, CAPT. Jon Woods, MD, and Comm Emory Frye MD and contracted services from Digital Ink Inc, computerized transport medical software technologists. By combining this array of resources, we are creating and poised to implement, within the next few months, improved and more efficient strategies of communication with prehospital and transport personnel with the ultimate goal of providing more exact and timely interventions, minimizing transport time to our receiving facility and improving the morbidity and mortality of our transported critically ill pediatric patients.
