Telemedicine Information Service For Ems Pre-Hospital Organizations


 
 

General Devices | | Tuesday, October 11, 2011


General Devices has inaugurated a live, on-line and telephone service designed to answer questions from progressive EMS professionals about pre-hospital EMS (Mobile) Telemedicine. The free service, which General Devices calls its “Go-2-Guys” EMS Telemedicine program, is designed to help those EMS organizations that are thinking about employing telemedicine in their ambulances. The program is said to provide expert, objective technical and operational information covering all aspects of mobile telemedicine.

According to Curt Bashford, General Devices’ President, “EMS Telemedicine can be confusing, difficult and intimidating for most EMS organizations.” To address these problems, the Go-2-Guys program provides direct communication with the engineers and project managers who created Tucson, Arizona’s ER-Link and Baton Rouge, Louisiana’s BR Med-Connect – the nation’s first citywide, commercially available EMS telemedicine systems - as well as the many other projects and systems they have worked on. Bashford says that through the Go-2-Guys program, EMS leaders can use this no-cost program to gain from their first-hand experience.

Telemedicine is a cutting edge and sometimes controversial technology. Is it for everyone? What will it cost? How will medics respond to it? What are its principal uses and benefits? Bashford says that these are typical questions now being asked of the General Devices’ team who will be available through the Go-2-Guys program.

General Devices is a leading supplier of innovative solutions for Emergency Medical Services, Hospitals and Public Safety. The company has more than 25 years of experience in EMS (mobile/wireless) communications, information management and telemedicine. According to Bashford, “General Devices is the only company with hands-on EMS telemedicine experience using commercially available (non-academic) solutions in city-wide deployments using varied broadband wireless and cellular connectivity for 911 emergency uses.” The company currently has more than 400 telemedicine capable “CAREpoint” Workstations installed in Emergency Departments and a customer base of well over 550 EMS and Hospitals throughout the country.

Go-2-Guys are reachable at 201-313-7075. Visit www.general-devices.com for more information and application form.
