Every software development firm tells their client, “We go the extra mile to make your app successful.” But Innovative Software Solutions, isn’t your average software development firm. When asked to create a health data communications app for first responders, primarily ambulances, ISS’ CEO Charlie Rogers said as he jumped into an ambulance, “OK, let’s roll!”
“The escalating violence and outrageous incidents all over our country continue to put incredible demands on responding EMS teams, plus medical teams awaiting victims in hospitals and triage centers,” Mr. Rogers explained. “Automobile accidents happen continually, and when a major catastrophe like a mass shooting, destructive tornado, hurricane or the August 12, 2017 riot that hit close to home in Charlottesville, serious injuries demand immediate attention. Providing attending medical personnel information they need to begin treatment ‘stat’ is critical,” he added.
“ISS developed TrackEMS (TM) for Medical Decision Network (MDN) providing up-to-the-second medical information so that medical staffs awaiting ambulance patients know in advance and understand the patient’s condition so that treatment begins as the ambulance pulls up to the ER.
“When medical personnel have important information in advance — from well-trained and equipped EMS teams — patient prospects are significantly improved,” he continued. Preparing first responders, especially EMS personnel, is not only a noble calling – we’re saving lives!” Mr. Rogers stated.
With a few screen taps, the TrackEMS Android and iOS compatible mobile app provides the scene data, images, videos and EKGs needed to alert and prepare ED staff on the condition of EMS transport patients. At the scene, TrackEMS eliminates the time-consuming verbal reports used by most EMS services. At the hospital, TrackEMS provides the data needed to better prepare and care for transport patients.
Innovative Software Solutions has extensive experience creating healthcare data management systems. ISS created the TrackEMS application using an Angular.js user interface and Microsoft.Net web API and SQL server back end. The mobile application was created using native code in Android Studios (Java) and XCode (Swift).
