2014-Eagles-Zoll-web

Mears described ZOLL’s thought leadership as one based on clinical care, understanding that EMS service delivery is key to quality patient care. Key attributes of ZOLL’s future vision include:

  • Advanced patient monitoring to more quickly detect changing patient conditions, such as shock and/or cardiac arrest;
  • Early warning of potential cardiac arrest, expanding the clinical decision support currently provided for CPR to other areas of resuscitation, including ventilation and acute time dependent illness and injury;
  • Empowering mobile integrated healthcare (community paramedicine) through remote monitoring, open architecture across platform data exchange (e.g., 12-lead ECG), and outcome analysis; and
  • Advanced business analytics of EMS service delivery and clinical care with a focus on benchmarking and best practices.

This year’s Eagles Retreat featured more than 50 medical directors from across North America as well as Great Britain, the Netherlands and New Zealand.
